Known for refined interiors with a sense of serenity, rose uniacke shares her top tips.

I like lighting to be low-key.


House lighting needs to be gentle and sometimes a little off balance. I don’t like too much perfection, with every picture lit.

I don’t think technology should be discreet.

Unless it is easy to hide and not remotely gimmicky. I don’t like television screens that are mirrored. I like big speakers on the floor – i like the honesty of it.

I am a believer that all style can be worked well or badly.

A dull tile used poorly in a bathroom will feel like a tragic apology, but take the same tile and cover your entire house, and suddenly it becomes a statement and it’s different.

When designing a room, a hand drawing still wins in my book.

They have more atmosphere than computer-designed images.

Invest in things you love.

The tiny, round marble table next to the bath in my own home gives me so much pleasure.

Before ordering, i try furniture in the space it’s intended for.

I often use mdf boxes – even before the building is finished. It helps you feel the energy of a layout.

For textiles, i turn to my store cupboard full of old fragments.

I also love developing a unique fabric for a house. I am working with a few handweavers at the moment.

Don’t be afraid to seek expert advice.

For a recent project, at godwin house in tite street, we worked with an art historian and developed a new hand-blocked wallpaper design from fragments of an old godwin wallpaper found in the V&A. The result is very contemporary yet cosy.

Not every room or area needs an obvious purpose.

Generous wasted space, if treated properly, can be the thing that makes a house.
