Our extensive experience and technical expertise ensure our ability to take on challenging and wide-ranging projects, delivering them on time with our professional and specialist team of designers, architects, contractors, and artisans.
Since Sarah Barclay founded the studio in 1998, Barclay Interiors has thrived on its easy manner, its client discretion and its imperturbable ability to work on large and diverse properties across the globe.
Sarah’s early life growing up in central London was around creatives, with a musical director father and an interior decorator mother.
Originally choosing to study the Law at University and working in the City, Sarah’s creative genes and a love of architecture eventually led her to study such diverse subjects as lighting design and calligraphy, millinery and textile design, culminating in a degree in the History of Art and Architecture.
Sarah’s designs have taken inspiration from the far flung exotic and cosmopolitan places she has lived in, and world travel has always played a significant role in her life. Having lived in Indonesia, the USA, France and Scotland, each place has offered its own enchanting originality.
Sarah has built up a strong reputation for her specialist interior design services and, with no in-house studio style, it allows her to draw on her client’s life experiences to create individuality in their designs.
“I have worked with Barclay Interiors on our projects – local and international – for a decade because they are creative, approachable, and professional. We involve them from day one – the house viewing, as they understand exactly what we need, translating ideas into designs that are always creative, innovative and fun, and always suited to us and our way of life.”
“We worked with team BI on our home – a large project that turned out to be much bigger and so much better than imagined. Their designs blew the originals out of the water. Their new designs and their attention to detail has culminated in a beautiful family home.”
“Barclay Interiors Ltd’s input, research and attention to detail during our site meetings (on an historic (listed) building) was key, and their space planning and lighting design on point. The finished project was beautifully-crafted and designed, and the (international) clients were very happy.”
“Barclay Interiors approach was impeccable from the outset – they provided a detailed site survey, a comprehensive plan with options, and a fully-costed proposal. In short, an outstanding service, professionally delivered and to budget and with responsive, courteous support throughout.”
“Barclay Interiors listen, interpret and deliver a very creative and effective interior design service. I have used the company several times for various projects and have never been disappointed.”
“I worked with Barclay Interiors at the design stage of my new house. Their architectural and design knowledge was invaluable.”
Our clients are invited to an interior design consultation with one of our senior creative team, where we garner an understanding of how they will use the space, assessing everything from the way they live and their needs, to their aspirations and aesthetic preferences. The brief is key in enabling us to tailor every project to each individual client.
Following the brief, we work with our client’s style and taste to create the initial designs and decorative specifications. This is also where we create floor plans, decide internal layouts, furniture placement, lighting arrangements, and produce scale drawings. We present the plans and drawings to our client along with mood boards and samples of proposed luxurious finishes and fabrics for consideration and approval.
The design development stage is where our client sees further refinement of the concept including any bespoke cabinetry, flooring or furnishings. Working CAD drawings are produced and any specialist services – from architects to artisans – are appointed. Progression continues with a proposed schedule of works which details the project. With our client’s approval, the team will be ready to commence work.
Our fully-qualified design team supervises the seamless installation of every part of the design from start to finish, ensuring that all elements of the project reflect our client’s brief and satisfaction to ensure an exquisite finish. Our highly experienced installation team will transform their living space ensuring it is fully dressed and styled to bring our client’s vision to reality.
