I help brands and homeowners create unique and colourful spaces for living

Colour consultancy and
collaborative projects

What’s your aesthetic narrative?

My ethos is to align interiors with personal experience, to conjure honest and inspiring spaces that turn homes into atmospheric havens — I call this creating ‘aesthetic narratives’.®

In a playful balance between science, imagination and instinct, I draw on my unique method of harnessing hues for colour combinations inspired by vernacular values and a sensitive reading of light and shadow developed from a wealth of experience and personal studies. I like to work with home owners, interiors professionals and brands who know that colour and how we feel in ourselves are undeniably interconnected, and who desire timeless interiors.

Thrival Interiors

“Fiona has an innate, highly developed and deep understanding of aesthetics and colour curation. It’s always a pleasure collaborating with her when styling a project or creating a colour scheme.”

Rachael Smith photography

“Fiona really gets the essence of the home she’s in. I have worked with her on several magazine shoots and each one has been an absolute pleasure. A calm, fabulous stylist who adds the finishing touches perfectly. She is an absolute gem!”

Claudia, private client

“Your understanding of how I wanted to connect with the rooms in my home exceeded my expectations. The observations you made about what is important to me in my life, based on my decor, was spot on. Somehow you managed to bring everything together for a fully considered look after our interior designer finished her work!”

Davina, client of Edward Bulmer Natural Paint

“Fiona’s knowledge of colours and how they work in a room was astounding and beyond helpful. We love the selection she’s made and are really looking forward to the paint cards, as well as starting the paint job.”

Mary Ann & Amy, private clients

“Fiona was so amazing to work with. She helped transform a rather dull and plain Hampstead flat. Her creativity and ingenuity, knowing just what to do and where, was spectacular to witness!”

Andrea Galer, The London Film Fashion Centre

“Wonderful work and I very much enjoy collaborating on projects with her.”

Chantal Gelb

“We were thrilled with Fiona’s service. She unlocked our aesthetic narrative and guided us toward a palette of colours we wouldn’t have had the confidence to choose, and we absolutely love it. She brings an innate perceptiveness, attention to detail and understanding of colour, with extensive knowhow and experience.”

Jo Elliot

“Within an hour of arriving at the house, Fiona had analysed the structural detailing and lighting plan of our cottage. After listening patiently to my haphazard thoughts, she helped plan the entire paint scheme brilliantly, whilst considering how colours respond to light throughout the morning. I was thrilled with her choices. Her help was invaluable.”

Josephine Corbett

“Joy. Thank you so much for today. It really was such a treat for me and I feel so excited getting it all done. I’m even warming to the lavender in the kitchen — the sky was full of it this evening, and I started noticing it everywhere! All so exciting. Thank you.”

Private client

“Fiona is a marvel. Her colours come together in a beautiful symphony. She really takes the time to consider the narrative of a home and its inhabitants to conjure a beautiful palette fit for their story. We had such a fun morning building the layers; it was a treat to see it all come together under her expert eye.”
