"What makes design so personal, fascinating and multi-dimensional is that you can blend compelling re-interpretations of the past with modern-day convenience. Then layer-in evocative art that speaks to you. And only you.”
~Helen & Scarlett,
CO-FOUNDERS, OPHELIA BLAKE INTERIOR DESIGN
INTERIOR DESIGN STUDIO
Born out of passion for designing unique interiors, Ophelia Blake Interior Design studio came into existence when the two creative forces – Helen and Scarlett - formed a partnership. The mother and daughter duo, residing in Lincolnshire, realised they each possess a distinctly different set of artistic and business qualities, but are unified in their methodical, client-centric, and iterative design approach.
Drawing upon their vast collective design experience, first-hand knowledge of the construction process, strong partnerships with architects and contractors, and a profound understanding of the luxury market, the design team creates expressive, thoughtful, and art-enhanced interiors. Interiors that capture the essence of each client’s personal style and taste. Interiors that are as beautiful as they are livable.
“I recently had the pleasure of working with Scarlett at Ophelia Blake. From the initial consultation, Scarlett’s passion for interior design and an eye for beautiful details was clear. She helped to define my individual style and created a scheme that was not only a joy to look at, but also cohesive with my wider home and accessible budget.”“I have been a property developer for over 40 years, I have worked with Scarlett and Helen Blakey on my last two schemes and cannot praise them enough on their interior design concepts and approach. With their bright and bold ideas, we achieved a much higher price than expected on our show flat.”
~ Lawrence Hamilton, National Property Developer
With over three decades designing interiors in the commercial sector, Helen’s designs have been admired at large in the luxury, golf, and leisure markets in Lincolnshire and beyond.
A lifelong love affair with professional design fuelled by passion for the industry, Helen expertly manages every aspect of the business.
HANDS-ON DESIGN MANAGEMENT
Obsessive over finer details, the studio’s evocative designs are the result of Helen’s flawless project management and execution, creative problem-solving abilities at every step of the process, and a hands-on consulting role around technical, contractual, and budgeting elements.
“I am a strong advocate for continuous learning and am interested in the design world at large, reading and traveling widely to ensure I am fully informed on the latest trends, projects, technology and materials. Coupled with Scarlett’s art background and our complementing design skills, this translates into Ophelia Blake innovative and truly bespoke designs.”
A fine art enthusiast, creative soul and a passionate entrepreneur, Scarlett is the co-founder and the creative partner of Ophelia Blake Interior Design studio.
While art appreciation is deeply rooted in her character and upbringing, interior design has become the creative outlet for her innovative ideas and re-envisioned concepts. Concepts that translate into bespoke interiors for the studio’s clients.
Managing a successful construction business coupled with a relentless practice of elaborating and challenging industry trends, Scarlett deeply understands and effectively articulates clients’ needs and expectations in delivering authentic interiors.
“I think art and interior design are inherently connected. On their own, each is incredibly beautiful and expressive. But together, they turn up the volume on living.”
