The Interior of a building plays a vital role in a persons’ peace of mind. SKIN, run by a design duo from Chicago has recently launched in London to help UK properties realise their full potential.
You know the saying “Money can’t buy taste” it is so true. How many times do you see a beautiful luxury car, spoiled by a garish paint scheme and add ons? When you see interviews with Hollywood stars from their homes, and you think, “what are they on having a ten-foot golden parrot in the room?” That is why some people need the guidance of SKIN.
SKIN is a relatively new luxury interior design service owned by Michelle Jolas and Lauren Lozano with roots in Chicago. Their aim is to get ‘under the skin’ of their clients, understanding their particular likes so together they design a harmonious interior.
SKIN blends timeless, classic interiors with a modern feel to showcase the particular traits of their clients. Michelle and Lauren achieve this by uncovering a clients taste and personality, surrounding them with the things they love and inspirational objects.
Psychologists have shown colour brings out emotions, many football clubs use red as a dominant colour, and hotel spas using blue pastels to soothe. In homes, interior colour is so essential as you spend so much time looking at the design scheme.
SKIN unites the brand’s classic, trademark edgy look of partnering hand-chosen vintage furniture with art, modern materials and styles.
To find the unique pieces for projects, Lauren and Michelle scout the world, frequenting estate sales and auction houses, exploring furniture markets and visiting their favourite shopping districts.
As part of this international approach, Lauren and Michelle welcome clients to join them on their design journeys by offering one-on-one or small group shopping trips to London, Paris, New York and San Francisco.
Lauren and Michelle use world-famous brands such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, Pierre Frey, Dedar, Holly Hunt, House of Hackney, Timorous Beasties, Phillip Jeffries, to name just a few.
Unline many interior design companies based in the capital; they are open to working on projects of all sizes from small residential to larger corporate projects.
