About Us

Interior Design Surrey Based Studio

Our Design Studio in Surrey was founded over twenty years ago, by husband and wife designers, David and Diana Hales. The Hales’ have brought together a small team of passionate and talented individuals, who are committed to architectural interior design excellence.

Each project is viewed from both an architectural as well as an interior design perspective, maximising the potential of every property – creative space planning is our priority.  Working with leading architects, contractors and suppliers, we deliver exceptional design solutions for a wide range of diverse clientele.  Whether creating a UK home for an international client, or maximising the potential of a clubhouse interior, our design team is committed to providing a uniquely personal design service.

We also have a small office in Salcombe, Devon, which helps to provide a local services to clients, across the South West peninsula

David Hales

David Hales has worked in the world of interior architecture and design since leaving art school over four decades ago. Having initially studied Architecture and subsequently working as an Interior Designer for a major London architectural practice, David identifies strongly with his corporate clients. David has a uniquely systematic and logical approach, which combined with his impeccable attention to detail, enables him and his team to complete projects within budget, whilst achieving results well-above his client’s expectations.

Over the last few years David has been delighted to be able to support the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) – of which he is a member – as an advisor at the open public forum at the popular Grand Design Show in London. David has represented the BIID as one of three judges at Decorex International, as well as being a panelist for the British Construction Industry awards.

Throughout his career, David has balanced working for a steady stream of high profile residential clients, as well as commercial projects. His refreshingly practical approach provides his clients with simple, elegant and stylish interiors which not only look stunning but are also functional and practical.

Having worked with David for over 20 years, Diana’s skills perfectly dovetail with David and the architectural team, bringing the technical detail and vision of each design to life. Her ability to build a special rapport with all her clients and translate their requirements into something that complements their style is what makes her a highly sought after taste-maker.

Diana collaborates closely with the design team and the client from the early project planning phase, enabling a cohesive approach and vision for the end result. Diana has a great eye for detail, refining the aesthetics that will ensure the finished interior accentuates the key design elements, and is as beautiful as it is practical.

A versatile approach and years of expertise means Diana can easily adapt to creating stunning interiors for private residential clients or transforming commercial spaces, from rural country retreats, to minimalist urban workspaces, with equal style and flair. From sourcing new pieces of artwork, fabric and accessories, to incorporating existing furniture and fixtures, Diana personally ensures that each project is delivered seamlessly. Ultimately, she strives to deliver both simple and refined interior solutions, which reflect the client’s personality and lifestyle.
