Top Interior Designer Katharine Pooley

Katharine Pooley creates sumptuous, inspiring interiors for the most discerning clients.  Her refined yet eclectic aesthetic has earned her a position as one of the most sought  after interior designers in London and commissions for landmark commercial and residential projects around the world.

Biography:

Born in the United Kingdom, Katharine Pooley was educated at St Mary´s School and INSA University in Lyon, France. With a vast experience in Hong Kong, working in Morgan Stanley and Barclays Bank, Katherine Pooley also lived in Vietnam, Singapore, Bahrain, returning to London 2 decades later. Katharine is married to Dan Voyce. They have two children, Charlie and Jack.

An innate sense of adventure has defined Katharine’s life and shaped her design philosophy. Katharine is an intrepid traveller and has visited more than 150 countries. However, what may come as surprising is the fact she has summited many of the world’s highest mountains, driven a team of dogs on a sled to the North Pole and crossed the Sahara on horseback, so one begins to form a picture of a truly original and adventurous interior designer.

Background:

The Far Eastern influences are explained by living and working in Bahrain, Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam. Returning to England after more than two decades abroad to pursue her passion for interior design, Katharine’s talent for understanding and marrying diverse cultural influences with elegant interiors quickly gained her a following among London’s international design cognoscenti. After establishing her design office and eponymous boutique in Knightsbridge and a prestigious concession in Harrods, Katharine has worked tirelessly to be at the top of her profession.

Recent London assignments include properties in many of London’s most prestigious addresses, the interiors for the Royal and VIP Lounges at Heathrow’s Terminal 5, a large apartment in the heart of Singapore, a chalet in Verbier and palaces in Kuwait and Qatar. She has won two esteemed Decorex awards and is consistently featured in the Andrew Martin Top 100 international interior designers.

The Most Iconic Projects:

Surrounded by Glenisla’s stunning scenery, Forter Castle was originally built in 1560 and enjoys a history as rich as the countryside in which it sits. Destroyed by the Duke of Argyll in 1640, it has been completely restored using traditional materials. Katharine Pooley has transformed the interior into one of luxury and comfort. Forter boasts all modern amenities and occupies five floors, each reached by a stone spiral staircase.
