Creative Director and Head Interior Designer Kia Stanford offers a comprehensive design consultancy, providing unique residential interiors for discerning private clients, as well as selective commercial work.
Alex is fairly new to interior design, after reading English at Oxford University and doing an MA in Fashion Design and Central St Martins, she designed for a number of luxury brands including Alexander McQueen & Burberry before moving into the Fine Art market. She developed a passion for interiors whilst curating personal art collections (and snooping around some VERY nice houses). It seemed a very natural transition, and allows her to blend her experience of dressing spaces to create vistas, moods and highlight particular features with her more practical knowledge of fabric durability, texture and comfort. She enjoys all aspects of the business, and relishes the diversity of projects taken on by Kia Designs.When not at the office Alex enjoys red wine and hunting for London’s best burger, reading, going to quirky events and is, in theory, writing an adventure novel set in Egypt.
Katie recently graduated from Goldsmiths College London with a BA in Fine Art and History of Art. Whilst enjoying the boundless creativity of the fine arts, Katie found that in making furniture as part of her course, the functionality and design of things were just as significant to her as their beauty and aesthetics. Having grown up with a building surveyor father, who constantly adapted their home, Katie took a keen interest in his work and formed her love and affection for everything interior and property related. She enjoys working closely with the team to design one-off bespoke pieces, combining beautiful aesthetics, great design and functionality that will last.
Our interior design service helps people to live better through interior architecture that solves problems, anticipates their needs and creates a home that works for them. Our service is tailored to individual expectations. We take the fear and that overwhelming feeling that most clients experience when researching for their project, inspiring them with confidence that their project will be taken through from initial inspiration to a completely finished home. Our interior design and project coordination service leaves our clients relaxed and excited about their finished home by keeping them up-to-date without being responsible for the day to day running of the project.
Helping to solve problems has always been a key feature of our service, whether it’s how to rearrange a floor plan to include a third bathroom or coordinating with contractors over the delivery schedule – our design service will provide you not only with the best possible interior design ideas for you but also knowledge that the project will be executed according to plan no matter how busy your schedule becomes or where you are in the world.
With large projects most of our clients often wonder where they should start. Rather than just interior design ideas our Client Investment Guide gives you a breakdown of where you should be investing your capital when doing a design project We take budgets very seriously and laying yours out correctly is the perfect place to start your project
As this was my first experience working with an interior designer, I was completely overwhelmed with the task at hand. Kia, with her calm and affable nature, patiently listened to and took into account everything I had envisioned and came up with a design that was not only aesthetically pleasing but practical, comfortable, affordable, and livable.
Duncan & Chris
Very happy with the result - Kia spent time to understand what we wanted and came up with designs that exceeded our expectations. The incidentals gave an extra dimension to the end result. We would definitely use Kia Designs again.
Amrita & Aneesh
Kia provided an absolutely fantastic and personal service, and really listened to what we wanted for our apartment remodel. She provided us with regular updates on each step of the process and we always felt that she keep us well-informed and clearly explained all the steps involved.I would have no hesitation at all in using her company again for all future projects and feel that she offers a very professional, but also bespoke, service.
Jacquie & Tony
Kia was fabulous in taking our vague ramblings and making sense of them. The end result was beautiful and we were so pleased to have a place to call our peaceful home in the midst of chaotic London. She managed to incorporate design elements we felt we couldn't live without, pushed our boundaries in presenting options we wouldn't have usually considered and managed to weave together traditional and modern vibes with aplomb.
Giles & Joanna
Kia refurbished our flat in Putney for us and we could not be happier with the result! Kia has been the most amazing professional, taking all the hassle of a big project away and delivering exactly what we have asked for. We would definitely hire her again.
Shola & Jonathan
Kia was instrumental in helping us create a home that we love. She had some terrific ideas but was always taking on board our suggestions. She was also immensely patient. There were so many decisions to make and I wouldn't have been able to make them without her input. She also has great contacts and was frequently able to sort things out for us at very short notice. I love what she did in our home and would definitely recommend her to anyone else.
I had seen Kia's portfolio online and thought it was absolutely lovely, and so emailed and asked Kia if she wouldn't mind answering some questions for us. She agreed to meet us late on a weeknight and spent a good hour answering all of our questions...She is extremely knowledgeable and gracious, and did a great job of educating us on what to expect. I highly encourage anyone considering redesigning their home to meet with her.
I have worked with Kia on a couple of interior design projects in very different properties . Kia brings creativity, energy and attention to detail to every project as well a great ideas and attitude. I would work with her again in a heartbeat, she gets things done, understands what it means to keep to deadlines and budgets and would recommend her highly
