INTERIOR DESIGNER RICHMOND

Timothy James Interiors is a residential interior designer based in Richmond,  West London.  

Our mission is to create interiors that awaken the eyes and refresh the senses.  We believe residential spaces should keep their occupants stimulated from day to day.  Each stage of our design process is collaborative and fun.  As a result, our designs are always highly bespoke and thoughtfully conceived.  

Most of our work tends to be in London or Surrey but we are always open to exciting new projects no matter where they are.  So if you are looking for an interior designer in Richmond or the surrounding areas, we would love to hear from you!  

Free initial design consultation

We offer a free 1-hour initial interior design consultation at your property.  This could be very beneficial at the early stages of your design project.  If you are thinking of hiring an interior designer, please get in touch to arrange this.  

Eye-catching residential interiors

The practice is led by Tim Burden – an artist and qualified interior architect/designer with 18 years experience. 

We offer all the expertise needed to deliver a fully comprehensive interior design package.  The projects we undertake range in size up to large family homes.  What we do involves much more than just supplying you with gorgeous furnishings.  It often includes the interior architecture as well.  For example, bespoke kitchen design, bathroom design and joinery design.  Also lighting schemes and the specification of finishes. 

We work with an exciting and talented bunch of craftsmen and suppliers.  Many of these we have worked with for many years to bring our creative visions to life.

How we can help you!

Many of our interior design clients contact us when they’ve just bought a new house.  They plan to renovate and furnish it, but lack the confidence and expertise needed to make it an attractive prospect.  It’s understandable because it can be time-consuming and complicated.

This is where we step in and take the reins.  Initially we brainstorm ideas with you and ask a series of insightful questions.  We then head back to the studio to weave our magic.  

We create photo realistic visuals for each room, based on real measurements.  The schemes we create incorporate all the information we’ve collected from you and the property.  Once our designs have been presented to you and agreed, these concepts become shared  ‘visions’ for us to make a reality.

Everything that goes in to the interior of your property (and that really does mean everything) is carefully designed or curated by Timothy James Interiors.   All in line with our conceptual vision.  We pull together every element with the utmost of care.  This could include the more ‘architectural’ interior elements such as the kitchen and bathrooms.  On top of this comes the FF&E — this is all of the ‘loose’ items such as furniture, lamps, artwork, soft furnishings and accessories.

By the end of our design process, everything has been carefully tailored to your needs and made to look beautiful.

When the designs are complete, we carefully coordinate the implementation for you right up until your house is absolutely finished.

What our clients say

 

We hired Tim at Timothy James Interiors for the complete refurbishment of our three-bedroom flat in Richmond.

Tim was very flexible, as we had a new baby and had moved out of the area. 

The designs presented and produced were the perfect style for the flat. He managed the whole process for us, managing the site and all the contractors. Tim’s communication was professional, he kept us up-to-date regularly, and his responses to any queries were prompt and his payment schedules were clear.

The quality of the finished flat is absolutely great!

TJI undertook a commission from me to totally refurbish a 4 bedroom duplex apartment at The Richmond Bridge Estate – a very prestigious development. Tim produced full designs for each area, then everything was put into detailed plans and budgeted. Tim also supervised the installation, which was conducted to a high standard and within budget. An important aside was an accident that Tim’s contractor had at the end of the project. One of their workers dropped a can of paint on the hallway carpet, causing significant damage. They immediately offered to replace the carpet in the hallway. I believe this incident is an excellent example of the professionalism of both Tim and the contractor. In summary, I would not hesitate to recommend Timothy James Interiors for quality interior refurbishment projects.

I hired Timothy James Interiors to redesign my home and to project manage the refurbishment. I chose them over others because they seemed to understand what I was looking for in terms of the design. I am very happy indeed with the designs they came up with and how they have been implemented by the contractors they work with. Tim, the creative director, is great at keeping in touch and is easy to talk to. I felt I could trust him to organise everything, even when I moved out for several weeks while the work was going on. My trust was rewarded with a wonderful apartment, more beautiful than I could have hoped, that feels like new and is getting great comments from everyone who visits.

I hired Timothy James Interiors to redesign my 3 bedroom apartment. Tim worked really hard to create the designs, providing me with floor plans and montage boards showing the proposed furniture and furnishings. Tim was admirably patient with my regular changes of heart! He has a range of contacts who will do all the necessary work, and while I was away he coordinated the project, going to the apartment to unpack and arrange furniture and oversee works. Despite my concierge staff being generally obstructive, he stayed calm and got on with the job. I am now very happy with my home, which has been entirely transformed. It is clear from Tim’s portfolio and his work on my project that he takes great pride in what he does. I am very grateful for all his hard work and would highly recommend Timothy James Interiors.

When I purchased a new property two years ago, I was keen to put my own stamp on the place but felt pressured for time and manageability due to my busy working life. Of the several design firms I considered, Timothy James Interiors was my instinctive and trusted choice as they proved to be proactive from the outset in listening to and understanding my style, preferences, specific requests and budget. Through close and honest interaction, they helped to transform my house into a liveable home that fits with my taste and needs. I was able to have complete faith in Tim for smoothly coordinating the whole project. Tim’s commitment and hands-on approach alleviated a significant burden from me. Timothy James Interiors offers a superior quality design service, encompassing sound implementation too. I can highly recommend them!

We hired Timothy James Interiors for the complete refurbishment of our home in Balham. He has been an absolute pleasure to work with and taken all the stress out of the process.

From the floor plans, to lighting, furniture and even accessories, Tim was able to make the entire process easier than any house refurb I have done in the past.

I'm really pleased with the result and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants a less stressful refurbishment done with ease.

Timothy James Interiors helped us to plan and furnish our new property in Kingswood which is part of the redevelopment of a mid nineteenth century house by Octagon. Lead designer Tim’s passion for what he does and eagerness to understand his clients made him a good choice for us. Unlike some other people we talked to, Tim was not over-assertive but he had ideas which he pursued with determination on occasion – but he always took on board our thoughts too. Of particular note was his reliability: he invariably did what he said he would by the agreed time. Also he was meticulous, especially in his drafting and layouts and he is clearly well advanced in building up a range of contacts and specialists who seem keen to work with him. He is a nice man, easy to work with, he has natural good taste and high standards of customer care.

Timothy James Interiors were employed by us to undertake a complete 4 bed house refurbishment in Richmond. In my experience, Tim and his team work to an extremely high standard and we are very pleased with the results. From the start of the project when Tim met with me and clarified in significant detail what we were after (including budget considerations) to the finished product, Tim’s professionalism and knowledge was very evident - detailed information and regular meetings made it very easy for us to see where we were heading and enabled us to make good decisions quickly. Time lines were consistently met and responses to communication were always very prompt. Tim oversaw the project very well. Tim of is a professional with a strong work ethic and I would have no hesitation in recommending his company and using him again in the future.

Hoping this lovely weather holds ☀️ 😎 Meanwhile we’ve been mostly indoors, both at the drawing board and on site, working flat out to create some awesome houses across West London!  Here’s a little preview of a bedroom reading area in a house we’ve almost finished in Richmond. There’s nothing quite like seeing colour schemes like these finally coming to life ✨

I may have been a little inactive on here lately – this is unfortunately a drawback of being so active in real life!  It’s the weekend and here I am, still at it, finishing off an installation in Richmond.  This is one of my favourite parts of the process – I personally deliver and install all of the furnishings I’ve either designed / had made or purchased for my clients.  Top of today’s agenda is artwork hanging 🤩

Spring is nearly here – this year bringing with it a much needed fresh start and a feeling of hope for us all. 

This sunny dining room was recently designed by us as part of a residential project in West London.  The brief; to create a dining space for animated and upbeat family meals.  Who wouldn’t want to share an after-dinner drink sat around this table?! ☀️ 🥂

A snapshot of a current pub conversion project at the concept design stage. We have just completed designs for three apartments and two new houses as part of a luxury development in Great Dunmow in Essex. 

This is one of the five kitchens, shown fully furnished to give our client a realistic impression of how it will all look when finished! Great working with our good clients/friends at Land & County Development on another exciting project 🥳
