Katie McCrum Studio



We are based in London and focus primarily on complete refubishments of homes and apartments across London. We also work on homes outside of London for our clients including a recently completed lakeside house in The Cotswolds and a ski chalet in Lech, Austria. 

Our studio is small by design because we believe that this enables us to have a deeper understanding of our clients, provide them an attentive service and ensure their satisfaction with the resulting scheme. We listen and form a solution that surpasses the initial brief. We seek to ensure that we have fun and fruitful relationships even though interior design can be a difficult process on occasion - we are problem solvers on behalf of our clients. The results speak for themselves with successful projects and being retained to work on multiple projects for our clients, also their confidence to recommend us for work with their friends and network. 

The service guides clients through all stages of design and follows the RIBA Plan of Work, helping clients assess the financial aspects of their project, deciding what they would like to achieve and all stages through to an exceptional quality resolution. We take on the stress so that our clients don’t have to. Working on private spaces that are also substantial investments means we communicate frequently and are transparent in our working to reduce understandable anxiety. We ensure that site works can proceed as smoothly and cost effectively as possible by taking time in the early stages to get the brief and the concept right and to ensure that we have worked through all the details before we begin construction. 

Design is the tailored to the people we work with and reflects their needs whether retired couples, young families or professional couples. The studio responds to the people and context without a formulaic design response. We want to reflect their personality, incorporate art works and furniture they love whilst also creating maximum storage and hidden facilities. This is essential for people living in central London where every area is utilised.

The practice is build on Katie’s experience in central London property development, running her own building company and subsequent switch to providing an interior design service in 2003.
