Timothy James was my instinctive and trusted choice”

Timothy James Interiors was founded in 2011 by Tim Burden.

Tim’s first fling with interior design came about in the late eighties when he was just ten years old. One summer holiday, a rich family friend invited The Burdens to stay at her country house on the Suffolk coast over the summer holidays. While he was there, Tim found himself free to roam around the beautiful mansion, and became captivated by the maze of corridors and echoey halls. Inspired by this, he built a scale model of the mansion as a labour of love which (with a little help from his dad) took him around a year to complete.    

Nine years later, after studying painting at Wimbledon School of Art, Tim was accepted into the prestigious Nottingham Trent University. He then graduated from there in 2003 with an honours degree in Interior Architecture and Design.

For the next two years he worked for big events companies, designing sets for high profile corporate events across Europe. After that, he followed his heart back into luxury residential interior design and hasn’t looked back since.

Tim spent eight years working for various well established interior designers, which gave him the experience and expertise to set up Timothy James Interiors.
