The studio is the creative vision of Tim Burden, a rare blend of artist and interior designer. Tim is driven by his desire to create interiors that evoke the senses with a playful blend of colour, textures and high-end furnishings that say as much about you as they do him.

A master of blurred reality with no space for mediocrity, Tim’s photo-realistic visuals tread the line between his limitless imagination and the actuality of what your home will become.

A lover of the detailed work of measuring and visualising spaces, Tim spent much of his childhood creating scale models of the houses that inspired him, including Blackheath Mansion in Suffolk.

After attending Wimbledon College of Art, Tim studied Interior Architecture & Design at Nottingham Trent University. He then spent several years learning his trade working with London-based design studios before setting up Timothy James Interiors in 2011.

Now Tim leads a talented collective of independent artisans and bespoke makers, including fine artists, upholsterers, curtain makers and joiners, all centred on bringing his visual designs to life, to deliver your comfortable and curated home.

I believe that vibrant, curated design and modern family living go hand-in-hand when you have a clear vision executed to exacting standards. Nothing beats seeing our clients’ faces the first time they see their home totally reimagined by us.”

The first step is to have a short call to discuss your project, potential budget and timescales and make sure we’re a good fit for each other.

Working like artists, we use photo-realistic 3D CGI visuals to create your concept & final designs, giving you the confidence to move forward knowing precisely what your home will look and feel like once we’ve transformed it. 

NO. 4


Once your designs are approved, we source and order everything needed to bring our vision to life including furniture, soft furnishings and lighting.

“I was able to have complete faith in Tim for smoothly and very effectively running the project”

“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 and specific requests. Through close and honest interaction, Tim helped to transform my house into a liveable home that fits with my taste and needs.”

No Bull

The relationships we build with our clients are paramount, and mutual trust is at the heart of this. This means being open and honest on both sides and not shying away from the difficult conversations that are sometimes needed to move your project forward.

With our eyes wide open, we let the world inspire us; art, cinema, music, nature and travel all provide a constant source of new ideas and a fresh perspective to our designs, meaning no two homes are ever the same.

Connection matters. Letting designers transform your personal space is an intimate process, so we all must get on. We work together with you to understand your brief and reflect your ideas in our designs, but there are times when we need to draw on our experience and take the reins to make sure you get the best possible home
