For Helen Bainbridge Interiors the idea of creating an authentic home for her clients, starts and finishes with connections: the people who live there, the history of the property and the landscape that surrounds. For each bespoke project these factors are uniquely considered – no formulaic design style and no one-size fits all approach. This highly personal journey is testimony to Helen’s down-to-earth, approachable style, which nurtures close working relationships and a desire to get under the skin of what makes each client tick. It is about creating timeless spaces that reflect the client’s lifestyle and their personal family story – a place you look forward to returning to and where you feel instantly at home.
Graduating from Canterbury College of Art, Helen initially worked as an art college lecturer, but at the age of 28 decided to follow her passion for interiors and established her own design practice. Fast forward 26 years and what started as the seed of an idea has grown into a highly regarded, fully immersive interior design company, that Helen runs from her private Cotswold home studio, in collaboration with a team of hugely talented architects, surveyors, builders, designers, tradespeople, craft experts, artisans and landscape designers.
With these longstanding relationships, the studio has cultivated a reputation for trust, exceptional creativity, meticulous attention to detail and professional in-house delivery, that attracts prestigious clients both locally and nationwide.
Attracted to colour, sustainable finishes, texture and unique one-off finds, the company’s new online shop now also curates an ever changing edit of antiques, decorative accessories, lighting and art – all thoughtfully sourced by Helen, to sit alongside a client’s existing collections. The alchemy of mixing old with new, adds the final finishing touches to a project – inspirational, immensely personal designs, that will stand the test of time.
