Salvesen Graham is an interior design and decoration practice specialising in classic interiors with a modern twist, working for both private residential and commercial clients in the UK and abroad. Founders Nicole Salvesen and Mary Graham draw on their combined 20 years’ experience to offer a comprehensive service, creating beautiful interiors that sit comfortably within their environment and meet the high expectations of their clients. We focus clearly on the client brief, so there is no “house style”. However, through the layering of textures and colours, and the juxtaposition of antiques with contemporary pieces, the result is a timeless look that we are fast becoming known for.

We believe that the interior design process should be an enjoyable and exciting experience and our team works hard to achieve this. We have an extensive list of industry contacts, and combined with a hands-on management style, this means that Salvesen Graham is able to ensure a stress-free experience, resulting in stunning interiors and satisfied clients.

We are happy to work on both private and commercial projects in any number of different ways, providing a flexible service, tailored to suit the needs of each client.The team is vastly experienced in working alongside respected architects, and takes pride in ensuring effective working relationships with builders, joiners and specialist trades, delivering a smooth-running project from concept to completion. Equally, Salvesen Graham is happy to be involved in the purely decorative aspect of a project from designing curtains to sourcing artwork, antiques and accessories.


“We have been very happy with the interior design service that Salvesen Graham have provided.  Nicole and Mary have always been both professional and easy to communicate with, making the process of transforming the rooms we were focusing on an enjoyable and stress free experience.  The end result speaks for itself and manages to be both beautiful and practical (a key consideration with four young children). Nicole and Mary deftly took both of our tastes into consideration and exceeded our expectations – quite a feat!”

Private residential client – Barnes, London.

“I approached Salvesen Graham because I needed some help with turning a large, white, open plan house in to a more comfortable and intimate place to live.  They were happy to work with my existing art and antiques, combining them with some bold fabrics, colourful lamps and new pieces of furniture. The end result is a characterful and warm house which reflects my personality and the changing needs of my family.  The whole process was thoroughly enjoyable and I can’t recommend Salvesen Graham more highly!”

Private residential client – Notting Hill, London.

“Nicole came up with some really great ideas for our home and has a great eye for colours and design. Our house ended up on the front cover of Homes & Gardens (and Salvesen Graham are now helping us with our next project as well) so I think that says it all!”

Private residential client – South West London.

“Working with Salvesen Graham was a pleasure from start to finish. It could have been quite a challenge with us living abroad and the building project happening in another country but Nicole, Mary and the team made everything work and were always at the end of the phone or email with creative suggestions when needed. They took in to account our various wishes and have created our dream home. The end result is a chalet full of colour that looks beautifully smart yet is cosy and practical for a young family. We would have no hesitation in working with them again and would most certainly recommend Salvesen Graham to anyone looking for a professional and innovative team of Interior Designers.”
