About Katharine Pooley London
Katharine Pooley is renowned worldwide for both the singular beauty and power of her extraordinary interiors, as well as for the dedication and elegance with which she embraces all aspects of life. Established over 18 years ago, Katharine’s London-based, luxury, interior design studio creates innovative designs and exquisite, award-winning, spaces. Recently named as “British Interior Designer of the Decade” Katharine’s design vision is limitless and unconstrained by genre.
With an impeccable portfolio of the most extraordinary, one-of-a-kind interiors, her signature sumptuous and vibrant designs can be found in grand residences and luxury hotels around the world. Her eponymous luxury lifestyle brand spans from residential, hospitality and commercial interior design, to collections of furniture, lighting, decorative home accessories and objets d’art.
Overseeing her team of 49 interior designers and interior architects, Katharine’s personal approach ensures every detail of every project and product is exquisitely realised and impeccably finished. This is at the heart of the studio’s ethos: dedication to clients; meticulous attention to detail; and creation of beautiful, unique spaces. Her breath-taking interiors range in scale and style, from traditional country estates to contemporary homes, hotels, luxury spas, modernist beach villas, historical palaces, traditional castles, ski chalets, planes and motor yachts.
Born in Hertfordshire, schooled in Oxfordshire and France, and then predominantly brought up in Bahrain, followed by 16 years in Asia, Katharine’s global sensibility was obvious from a young age. Hailing from a family of adventurers and aeronautical enthusiasts, Katharine’s passion for exploration has been a lifelong inspiration.
An intrepid traveller, she has visited more than 150 countries and, along the way, has summited many of the world’s highest mountains; driven a team of dogs on a sled to the North Pole; and crossed the Sahara Desert on horseback, amongst other exciting adventures. A tenacious, driven business woman, as well as a truly original and adventurous interior designer, Katharine’s energy and positive spirit are legendary.
