I started my business when I was 21. I bought my own flat with 100% mortgage (which you could in those days) and began to renovate it. I knew a few developers and once they saw what I’d done with the place they began to commission me on their work. It was an exciting time!
The key to our success is in the relationships we build with our clients, suppliers, the artisans we commission, the press and, most importantly, each other within Taylor Howes. These relationships enable us to work closely with each cog of the interior design machine to create the most beautiful and bespoke interiors.
For me, my team are the catalysts of my creativity. Their energy constantly inspires me to create and work harder – and I hope I do the same for them! We’re known in the industry for operating more like a family than a business and I think this is reflected in the way each of our interiors is so full of our spirit and devotion.

When it comes to safeguarding property, there’s no doubt that technology is incredibly useful. But to be truly effective, it needs to be part of a larger whole: just one element within a coherently designed security strategy. Find out more about our approach.
