The Director

Sarah Barclay

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.”
