Knox Design does not limit the location of its projects to the island of Mallorca alone and is always happy to consider other places. So, after having her coastal holiday home completely refurbished and redecorated by Knox Design on the island, this client couldn’t wait for Justine Knox to create a lighter more relaxed but colourful ambience in her main residence in Surrey, UK.

Despite the obvious logistics difficulties, Justine Knox managed to do a complete design makeover of her Camberley home in three simple stages:

  • A first visit to do a basic consultation and take measurements
  • A second visit to present samples and chosen furniture, fabrics and accessories
  • A third visit to deliver and fit the home, while the client took a one week holiday

Clean contemporary lines of Spanish and Italian furniture were combined with more organic pieces and nature-themed papers and fabrics, to create a luminous and summery mood throughout. The idea was to make the most of the natural light in the home in the use of ivory and bright white; this backdrop was then further enhanced by the use of imaginative and colourful wallpapers and soft furnishings, adding fuchsia, orange, apple green and turquoise to the various rooms.

In her relentless pursuit of colour, Justine Knox chose two vibrant pieces by international artist Vivian Borsani to grace the walls of the dining room and sitting room: a colourful big bird in flight and a serene triptych of a pond and lilies, both works echoing the chromatic schemes of the spaces. The magnificent sunroom, decked in creams and green, opens up to the garden, where the outdoor furniture selected by Justine stands as an all-weather reminder of warmer climes. The client returned to a light, elegant and colourful residence, with echoes of Mediterranean summers in a very British county. She was thrilled with the result and so was the Knox Design team.

"Nearly four years ago Justine and the Knox team designed the interior of my house in Mallorca the result of which I was very happy with. Six months ago Justine agreed to come and see my house in UK and once again I am delighted with result. Justine offered me a colour scheme after seeing my fairly modern property and went on from there. Furniture, lovely fabrics and accessories of which I don't think many are readily available in UK were used to transform my property into something light, airy and a pleasure to own, her very interesting touches and much needed storage added to the transformation.
