Let's Create Your Home

As a client of Sturman & Co. you can share our encyclopaedic knowledge of interiors and together we shop across the whole market, wherever is best to create your dream space. Our fees are always kept separate and transparent, so we don’t choose your room scheme based on the mark-up we can make – we take time to find what’s perfect for you.

And as you would expect, our practice has an enviable black book, but creating original, comforting and personalised spaces is what Sturman & Co. is really about. On a personal level, Bess’s designs balance fun with longevity, and our team are as likely to be inspired by Roman architecture as the latest internet meme.

Many of our clients haven’t used an interior designer before and come to us unsure of what to expect – certain TV programmes haven’t always made designers look good!  At Sturman & Co. we believe it is a privilege to be invited into your home or business to help you design it and our work is built on a principle of utmost respect for your privacy and taste.  We’ll give you courage, polish and confidence with our designs but will never bully you into making design decisions you’re uncomfortable with.

We’re not right for everyone and we don’t aim to be.  But if you’re wondering whether Sturman & Co. is right for your project, please contact us to find out more.

'Bess put together colours and shapes in a way I would never have thought of on my own and they work brilliantly - allowing me to keep the furniture, paintings and objects that I loved from my old house and really enhancing them...Bess has been professional throughout - reliable, punctual, supportive and tactful. I am so glad I chose her.'

How we work

Starting from scratch with our client and their architect and/or builder, we work together to give each large-scale residential project a unique design purpose and style, steering well clear of becoming ‘run-of-the-mill’.

On smaller projects, you will work with our team to achieve the gloss you see in interior magazines.

We start with what you already have and love, then use our tricks of the trade and our list of amazing suppliers to refresh, revamp, decorate and style your space with personality and polish.

We always provide accurate fee quotes to ensure you feel in total control of your budget and decision-making.

  • Space planning and Remodelling
  • Lighting design
  • Bespoke joinery, cabinetry and furniture design (including kitchens)
  • Original bathroom and shower room design

Bess transformed two rooms in our house in record time, on budget and with the most professional hassle free (for us) service. She spent a lot of time with us listening to our likes and dislikes, set us up on Houzz and Pinterest and asked us to get pinning so that she could build up an image of what we liked. This paid huge dividends as we loved the first mood boards she produced on sight. Both rooms were completely redone ( painted, new flooring, new curtains and she blinds and furniture, art work, lamps etc) within around 4 weeks of seeing the mood board. The works were carried out in a 2 week period when we were on holiday using Bess' recommended tradesmen under her supervision. We came home to a big reveal, the house had been carefully cleaned and there were flowers waiting from Bess. It was just the most amazing surprise. Best money we have ever spent on the house and looking forward to working with Bess on our kitchen next year.
