How I became an interior designer My mother was an interior designer, so you could say it’s in my blood. Before going to university, I worked in set design for plays and movies, which I also loved. She then attended an American art school for four years and then worked for a talented architect in Washington, DC. After returning to London, her mother convinced me to help her with her huge project, and soon after that I ended up taking over her mother’s company and turning it into Apponyi Design.
who I recently described my style as follows “Inspiring, collaborative, passionate, human and fun” – a huge compliment. I always want my space to be personal and livable. Coziness and warmth are very important, as is understated elegance with some elements of fun. After all, each project is unique, so my style is different.
My biggest inspiration is my clients and the real estate I work on.. I never have a particular design or scheme in mind and wait for it to be used in my next project. My designs develop from getting to know my clients and their homes, and I am sometimes surprised by what comes out of that. Interior design tends to be the most creative, successful, and fun projects because it’s a collaboration with the people who live in the space.
my project The work I’m currently working on is my favorite. – Langdon Court, Devon. my customer, Donna Ida, is a dream to work with for various reasons. This was one of the most fun, challenging, creative, exhausting, inspiring, and rewarding projects I’ve ever worked on. For me, it’s a good sign when I can’t stop thinking about a project.
