"WE SHOULD CELEBRATE AND SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER IN THE SAME TRADE RATHER THAN SEE EACH OTHER AS COMPETITION..."

 
 

Our inspiring designers paid a visit to High Road House in Chiswick to attend The Interior Design Lounge With Sophie Ashby earlier this year. She spoke about all things from styling tips and ideas to how we should deal with competition.

Sophie told our A.LONDON designers about how she loves collating unique objects and items from auction houses and antique showrooms to create unique and eccentric schemes. Another one of Sophie's techniques which we found interesting is the way she starts a project with a single piece of beautiful artwork and building the rest of the interior around this. Our own Saint Martin's Loft project has some fabulously striking pieces of artwork.

Here are a couple of our personal favourite projects of Sophie's.

We loved how Sophie isn't afraid to take inspiration from other interior designers. She spoke fondly of other designers and believes that we should all celebrate and support one another in the same trade rather than seeing each other as competition and not appreciating each other's great work.

Thanks for the great talk Sophie, we look forward to attending more in the future!
