Country & Town House

Top 50 Interior Designers –

We are honoured to be included in the Country & Town House Top 50 Finest Interior Designers for 2021 alongside so many fantastic designers.

‘The soul of Taylor Howes is echoed in our “true design for living” approach,’ says Karen Howes, who co-founded the studio nearly 30 years ago (she took over as sole director in 2011). ‘Our job is to add the wow factor while also ensuring that the way a home feels is never sacrificed for the way it looks.’

She naturally leans towards a bold, playful use of pattern and colour but ultimately the aim is to ‘get into our clients’ heads and create something that is both completely unique and right for their everyday needs.’ She and her team have completed more than 1,000 projects, the latest of which are a Cotswolds country estate, a seven-bedroom home in Knightsbridge and the Chateau Denmark hotel in Soho. Other initiatives include a collaboration with Aga and the official charitable roll-out of Rest Nest – redesigned break rooms for hospital staff”.
