I set up Lauren Gilberthorpe Interiors six years ago because I wanted to create an interiors company with a sense of soul. Having spent ten years in the industry, as a senior designer working on some incredible projects, I knew I had the expertise and the experience behind me. But the one thing I felt that was missing for me was a portfolio that showed real passion and personality; those soul-centered projects that I felt compelled to find.

 Well-styled spaces are not simply about colour schemes and high fashion furnishings, I craved the chance to create not just pretty spaces, but personal ones also. I made it my mission to dig deeper, to get beneath the beautiful and understand my clients; who they are, how they live and how they want to feel in their space.

Because I realised that what makes a design experience truly individual is relationship. Your relationship with one another, our relationship with you (as we get to understand your personal style and sense of story) and above all, your relationship with your home. This is what informs our original designs.

We don’t want to make you look like another Instagram home or a styled magazine spread. It’s not about looking like a show home, but creating a soul home, and that is what we aspire to, a space that’s styled for you, an effortless blend of beauty and simple sophistication.

What we’ve learnt is that real homes have real heart.

GETTING TO KNOW

we believe in ...

OUR VALUES

PREVIOUS

NEXT

Trust is important to how we do things. Our clients are trusting us with their style, their surroundings and their spend. The interiors industry can have some discrepancies when it comes to cost and commissions so it’s important for us to be upfront and open. We’re honest in how we charge, clear in how we communicate and know that our transparency and your trust is key to our success.

TRUST

01.

Relationship is at the heart of great design: your relationship to one another but also your relationship with your home. We’ll be looking for how you live, what you love and your lifestyle – interacting, relaxing, entertaining… your space will be styled, not just to look good but to work with who you are and to express the elements of your personality and passions. It’s also about our relationship, as project partners. We get to know our clients on a deeper level so that we can truly draw the design from you.

RELATIONSHIP

02.

Style is at the centre of our interiors. We are known for our X yet X style, infusing classic and sophisticated styling with modern twists, muted colours and textures to accent the tale. Although we have a clear house signature style, our house is your home and so we work collaboratively to ensure your personal style is portrayed at all times. We don’t want to simply design show homes but instead we design homes with heart that show real soul.

STYLE

03.

Styling can be shallow, making something visually attractive and straight out of a magazine. What we want to achieve is not just aesthetic design, but authentic design. We pride ourselves on going deeper and truly connecting with our clients. In getting to know you, reading your space and putting together mood boards with meaning. This translates into our designs and stories told through colour and texture, adding different dimensions and feelings to a place, making it not just a pretty space but a personal one too.

DEPTH

04.

Real homes are about real heart and we’re passionate about designing soulful places for real people, spaces that speak to you and light you up. It’s that twilight moment when you get a glance inside a home at night with the golden glow of the soft lamplight and you get a glimpse of the house coming to life. This is when the soul of a space is most apparent, after hours in those moments of privacy. We understand that high end houses still have a heart and it’s our privilege and passion to design dream homes that showcase not just style but a sense of soul.

SOUL

05.

Lauren is at the hub of the action, finger in every file, scoping out spaces and adding energy and enthusiasm as well as her excellent eye for detail. It’s her job to get into the head of our clients, to translate their vision and bring it into their home. She loves music festivals, long beach walks with Darcie and curling up with a very dog-eared (and most likely dog-chewed) book.

Georgie’s growth and development as a designer has mirrored that of LGI as a business. Georgie started out with us for a work experience week and never left! She has become our most experienced designer with a forensic understanding of the design process and the company values. With an excellent eye for colour and a good grasp on how a space needs to look and feel, Georgie is fantastic at bringing our visions to life.
With a degree in Interior Design from Falmouth University, she not only has the knowledge but she’s also the nicest person to work with. Always the first to be putting client care at the core of the project, she is sunshine personified.

With a passion for decorating and a love of colour, Louise is happiest with a paintbrush in her hand by day and a book by night. Organised and efficient, approachable and adept at multi-tasking, Louise is in charge of making sure the studio runs like clockwork and the projects are perfectly planned out. A penchant for bold patterns and buildings with a sense of story, Louise spends her spare time restoring her 1930s home and creating a hub that has friends and family at the heart.  Always on the go, you’ll usually find her pottering in the garden or hosting family gatherings and serving up her famous roast - how many vegetables can she cook to accompany roast dinner? Lots!

"Lauren is a true professional and ensured that the whole process was SIMPLE & STRESS FREE! After living in older properties we struggled to find the right balance for our new home but now the interiors have been brightened with fresh, natural colours.
