We love to work closely with creators and creatives to collaborate and share beautiful new concepts and ideas. In late 2020, we collaborated with the beautiful Sophia Smith (@sophiaxsmith) to create her ultimate cosy and stylish living room design.

For those who don't know Sophia (where have you been?!) she is the ultimate style icon, social media influencer and fashion designer. Sophia started out studying in Birmingham to get her degree and now has a whopping 900k+ following on Instagram with an insta grid to die for.

Her love for interiors prompted her to create a secondary Instagram account (@sophiaxsmithhome) where she features her personal home style and new additions. Inspired by the likes of interior designer Kelly Hoppen, known for her signature neutral palette, and Rosie Huntington-Whitley’s interior style, Sophia’s go to style is minimal, with clean lines and paired back textures. 

To begin this project with Sophia, our in-house interior designers worked with Sophia to create a collection of inspirational mood boards. We hand selected the perfect home pieces we thought would work in the style and space she had inside her home, then we made adjustments until she was happy with the overall vibe.

Initially, Sophia had a different idea to start with, playing with blush and gold accents, however while we consulted on design, Sophia opted to go for a more minimal look, with lots of layered textures. 

Once the look was established, we created the perfect layout floor plan and got ourselves ready for a day of styling!
