Established in 2015, with a desire to be different from the usual 'interior designer crowd' Rococo's approach to interiors means no budget is too big or too small, no task unimportant. From finding chairs to match a dining room table, to unearthing the perfect door knocker, Rococo takes pride in creating warm and welcoming home environments. Rooms that people actually live in rather than those purely for show - who wants to be in a room where you can't put a coffee cup or wine glass down anywhere?
Rococo’s approach is to create a look as well as source items that aren’t necessarily eye-wateringly expensive. She believes that too many people think cost equals quality. This is not always the case.
Taking the time and hassle away from clients, Rococo will always go the extra mile, literally scouring Europe to do it – trekking through reclamation yards, auction houses, online platforms, farmhouse and estate sales. This enables Rococo to dig out hidden gems while also ensuring every object has an interesting story to tell - a big part of what makes interiors fun.
While entertaining friends at home one weekend a guest (who Rococo had not met before) asked if she could help find something for his new home. Realising that this guest, like so many others, was being more than polite when they commented on the design of her home or asking where she found 'this or that' Rococo hit on the idea that her eclectic style appealed to people of all ages - from school friends in their late 20's to other friends in their 30's through to 60's. Even a friend in his 80's. This combined with the fact that she was spending all her free time giving advice on look and style and finding furniture for her friends and family. She realised that while many people knew what they liked or items they wanted, they sometimes lacked the eye or time to create it. It was at this point that she decided to turn her passion in to Rococo - London Interiors & Furnishings.
Growing up on Exmoor as one of six children, and with a mother who worked in antiques and textiles, Rococo was always surrounded by creativity. Though they didn’t have huge resources, her mother transformed their house - outfitting it with William Morris covered sofas, rustic farmhouse furniture, and fabrics. This is where the story begins. From a young age, Rococo has been dreaming about creating stylish spaces and how she could help bring others homes to life.
After leaving school, Rococo worked at some of the UK’s most notable interior design companies, as well as gaining valuable experience through real life situations - the most difficult training ground possible. It is this drive that she now brings to the business. Her paramount goal is to work hard for clients and help them unlock ideas or treasures that will last decades – both in terms of quality and style – and that work, functionally, in a family home, office, pub, or hotel.
Her pricing structure allows her to consult a first time home owner for a few hours, while she talks through colour and space, so that they can then use this knowledge to go out and find things on their own if they prefer, or alternatively offer a complete interior design turn key solution.
