Design Studio Services


Eliza Barnes offers bespoke interior and architectural design. We work closely with clients from the start, whether we are designing a room or an entire property our approach is collaborative. 


We take time to get to know your requirements, how you live and how to add value to your scheme.  We will consider the layout of the property and how to improve the flow of space and come up with clever and interesting design solutions.  We can look at everything from decoration to improving single rooms to overall layout to extensions.


We can get involved even at the pre-purchase advice stage right through to planning, party wall, tendering building control, overseeing contractors and managing the build. We design internal layouts and external extensions plus all interior design right down to lighting. fittings, furniture and accessories if required. 

Conservation and Restoration

Eliza Barnes has undertaken work on many period buildings with heritage protection that need a conservation approach. We look at each project with a sensitive eye making new additions if needed with a view to creating contemporary space for modern life. 
The studio’s most recent restoration project was Highwell House, you can read more about the project in Country Life and Business Insider.

Design and Decoration


At Eliza Barnes we like to get the bare bones of a building right. If that’s already done we can transform your space with paint, paper, textiles and furnishings. We use a lot of reclaimed and conservation materials to add interest to walls. Interesting paint techniques for walls and floors can change a room. We look at overhauling the lighting which can have a dramatic impact on your space. We love a vintage fabric and will play around with colour and texture to add interest to a space.

Kitchens and Cabinetry


At Eliza Barnes we love doing kitchens to meet all budgets. Every Eliza Barnes kitchen is unique. Often we mix standard units with non-standard pieces to introduce an unfitted look. Or we take standard cabinets and design our own doors. Or we build from scratch. We apply the same rules to cupboards, storage spaces and shelving from budget to bespoke. Our aim is to give the client something unique whether its bespoke or off the peg.
