Country & Town House



We are delighted to feature in the Country & Town House Top 50 Interior designers list.

Since Karen Howes co-founded Taylor Howes 26 years ago (she took over as sole director in 2011), she and her team have completed more than a thousand projects, from royal palaces to penthouse apartments and country cottages. ‘We pride ourselves on our ethos of “true design for living”: a space will have details, bold use of colour, balance and symmetry,’ says Karen, who has recently finished two properties within the Lincoln Square development in Holborn and a penthouse within Landmark Place.

‘We are using a lot of natural materials at the moment and working with our suppliers on sustainable materials and finishes. For instance, we’re looking at how Piñatex, a leather substitute can be introduced into our schemes.’
