PROFILE

“An assured designer, with a talent for creating myriad styles, Caroline Paterson executes a slick, modern look and period English interiors with equal confidence. She’s genius at advising on art, and likes to deliver a house with a sense of the unexpected, but respecting her clients’ personalities. She keeps a firm eye on schedules and budgets too.”

Focussing on both Contemporary and Traditional work, the Studio delivers detailed Interior Architecture, Joinery, Bespoke Furniture, Rugs, and Lighting Design, for residential and commercial projects, in the UK and abroad.

Caroline Paterson Interiors was founded in 1987. Prior to this, Caroline worked for six years as assistant to Chester Jones, one of the senior partners at Colefax & Fowler. Her working life began in the Furniture Department at Christies and she has maintained her love for sourcing antiques and frequently buys from art fairs and galleries for her clients. Along with this, Caroline also designs bespoke pieces of furniture and rugs, and plans to launch her own product range in the near future.

Caroline’s style can best be described as eclectic and versatile, with the foundation of her inspiration based predominantly on architecture, about which she cares deeply. She enjoys the contrast of working on contemporary interior design projects as much as traditional and whilst at Colefax, spent many years working on corporate projects.

Based in Chelsea, London, Caroline and her team currently have projects all over the UK and abroad, ranging from new builds and complete restorations, to decorating single rooms. Working closely with an interior architect and specialist joiners, Caroline also develops strong working relationships with her clients’ own architect and builders to ensure projects are run as smoothly and professionally as possible.
