South Kensington Duplex
Studio Vero is a contemporary and cosmopolitan interior design practice led by creative directors Romanos Brihi and Venetia Rudebeck.
Friends for over 20 years, Romanos Brihi and Venetia Rudebeck first met whilst still at school. After both pursuing successful interior design careers in their own right, they joined forces in 2014 to open Studio Vero, becoming part of Notting Hill’s New Establishment. Weaving together rich cultural backgrounds, their work combines a blend of the urbane with the unexpected, defying simple categorization or labels.
Over a few short years, Studio Vero has established a reputation for creating environments which feel expressive, yet also aesthetically balanced. Fusing a desire for inventiveness with design refinement, panache with practicality, Romanos and Venetia work together to create striking results.
Of course, the most important relationship in the process is the one they build with each individual client. Eschewing any notion of standardization or a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, Romanos and Venetia are deeply committed to their client’s needs and tastes. Whether it’s an elegant London pied a terre, a Provençal villa or a substantial country residence, every process is unique. There are no presumptions or reiterations of rooms which can be found elsewhere – originality is the only thing guaranteed. Building an understanding of exactly how a client wants to live and express themselves through their home is not just the starting point; it’s the guiding principle which steers every project.
It’s this collaborative attitude and inherently individual style which has created a loyal base of returning clients. Romanos and Venetia can find inspiration in any space and have become renowned for their attention to detail as well as the impeccable, hands-on service they provide.
