Caroline Cobbold

Caroline Cobbold Design Ltd



Caroline Cobbold has developed an undeniable wealth of experience from the design world, starting out as a Set Decorator and then Production Designer on top advertising campaigns and feature films. Traditionally trained, her impeccable taste and attention to detail has evolved due to her continued curiosity and her passion for travel, leading her to work on beautiful interior projects in the UK and abroad. 

She trained under Tessa Kennedy, the renowned Interior designer and set up a company with Tessa in 2012 until 2016, when Tessa Kennedy finally retired. Working on projects in Switzerland, Moscow and Mayfair to name a few, with 6 figure budgets. In 2008, before Caroline left the film industry, she set up, along with a fellow Set Decorator, the company; Cobbold du Pont Ltd, which she ran alongside her company with Tessa Kennedy. Caroline bought the company out exclusively in 2015 and now heads her own company, Caroline Cobbold Design Ltd. Caroline's skills lie in her versatility as she adapts her own instinctive style to bring the client's vision to life with her striking aesthetic and dedicated professionalism. Caroline prefers to layer different genres of styles so it appears that the client has built up their own collection of treasured items over time, without looking or feeling too 'over-designed'. Antique furniture sits alongside contemporary pieces, merging modern with vintage to create an innovative, original style, bespoke for every project but led by Caroline's impeccable taste.
 Caroline focuses on the client's needs, taking into account practical requests yet bringing her own unique ideas to create an undeniably beautiful space. Caroline is known for her bold use of colour, texture and colour combination.
 Every interior seems to tell a story. She can bring a room to life with a sense of vibrancy, dynamism and character, with her work being quoted as; ‘pared back sophisticated chic, with the merest suggestion that a clandestine moment has just taken place’.

Longevity is at the forefront of Caroline’s ethos to sustainability. She prefers using beautifully crafted antiques and natural materials as she is committed to her work standing the test of time. In terms of buying products Caroline makes sure to check that the companies she sources from are ethical and where possible uses British companies to be conscious of minimising carbon footprint.  Caroline aims to create a finished interior that reflects the true personality of its owner interpreted through her own taste and unique style. She does this while working within an agreed budget and schedule, providing the client with an outcome that exceeds their original expectations.
