Sophie established her own interiors company Sophie Paterson Interiors in 2008 at the age of 23, with no formal training but with plenty of good taste to spare. Since that time, Sophie has developed her company into one of the UK’s most successful interior design studios, and works on high-end projects in both the commercial and residential sectors across UK and Europe.
She even published a book, Style & Glamour, which is filled with images from her projects that not only acts as a portfolio, but also provides information and inspiration on how to create her signature Contemporary, Classic interiors.
She designs each project with a bespoke vision, which is then given to her senior design and design coordination team who manage it. Her interior decorating ideas is described as both timeless and contemporary, with an expert use of color and texture and an innovative eye for design and approachable luxury.
To furnish this townhouse, located in the heart of Chelsea. Sophie gathered a mix of antiques and contemporary furnishings. The light filled space features warm colors, and rich textures and finishes. The walls are covered in silk to add a bit of luxury. Geometric shapes are used which emphasize the period architecture. The mirrored, antique brass and ebony cabinets on either side of the fireplace are from Birgit Israel, while the leather furnishings are from Poltrona Frau. The sideboard is composed of high gloss Macassar ebony.
On the ground level, guests enter the home here in the grand entrance hall with its high ceilings and period detailing. The generous space allowed for the generously scaled pendant chandeliers are from Jamb. The designer sourced the antique mirror from a favored local antiques shop which she placed above a Macassar ebony console. The hall leads into the very glamorous kitchen and dining room which spans the entire floor.
