ABOUT
Studio Skey is a boutique interior design studio founded by Sophie Scott and Georgina Key, specialising in both contemporary and classic interiors for private residences and unique commercial spaces.

Working across projects from initial concept to completion, we offer a full interior architecture and design service. This includes spatial planning and reconfiguration, material and FF&E specification, procurement and end of works styling. We provide technical plans, fully bespoke bathroom and kitchen designs as well as custom joinery and upholstery solutions, either individually or as part of a complete tender package.

As an interior architecture & design studio, our aim is to provide clients with thorough guidance for achieving a seamless blend of architecture and interior design in their spaces. We deliver a complete architectural consultation service, ensuring our projects are not only aesthetically pleasing but also function flawlessly within their architectural context.

Our services can be adapted to suit a wide range of projects from full scale renovations, involving structural work and extensions, to simpler dressing and styling solutions. Regardless of scale, we also offer project management services to oversee the smooth running and completion of projects.

Clients gain from the synergistic effects of our collaborative design approach, leading to a more thoughtful and all-encompassing execution of their vision. Our studio anchors the entire design and renovation process and aids in assembling the optimal team for each unique project, from general contractors to specialist trades. Serving as the primary point of contact for the client, we streamline the process and meticulously consider every design aspect, whether working exclusively with us or as part of a larger project team.

ETHOS
Our objective is to create spaces with a harmonious union of function and aesthetic. Our client's brief is always firmly at the heart of the design process.

Our studio takes a very consultative, communicative approach to our projects, taking the time to understand each clients' personal style, priorities and lifestyle. We bring value to a project by sourcing the highest-quality products within the client's budget to elevate each design to its highest potential. When furnishing a space we will combine pieces from established and emerging designers with those from artisan makers as well as antiques and completely bespoke pieces, designed by us in-house. This mix creates refined interiors that are characterful and warm, even when more minimalist in style.

We take a contemporary approach to create pared-back, timeless interiors which we ensure always remain sympathetic to the heritage of each individual property. Favouring warm neutral and tonal schemes with rich textures and natural materials, we create balanced environments unique to our clients’ needs, enabling them to live comfortably amidst considered, beautiful designs.

Our studio has a strong emphasis on interior architecture and reconfiguration of spaces. We feel it's important to address the structural bones first to create internal points of interest and to improve natural light and flow to make the same square footage work harder for our clients. We always look to maximise the potential of the space that they have whilst respecting the origins of the building.

TESTIMONIALS

We engaged studio.skey for a full refurbishment of our house in Victoria Park. We only have great things to say about Sophie, Georgina and the studio.skey team.

Our project involved a complete refurbishment of every room, our garden and coordination across multiple teams including building contractors, audio visual specialists, kitchen installers, gardening experts, furniture designers and others. They took the lead in pulling all those strings together to give us a comprehensive vision with a large number of moving parts around how the finished product would look.

Sophie and Georgina were fantastic at helping us make design decisions in real time that really added to realising our overall vision and feeding that into all the different parties to execute the work in an amazingly efficient fashion. From our very first meeting all the way through the initial design phase and the subsequent execution, we were given complete confidence that not only were they in tune with what we wanted to achieve but also that they would be the primary drivers of helping us achieve that on time.

We had a very good feeling after our first meeting with the team and that initial view was more than validated throughout our project. Candidly, the end result and the process has been simply wonderful and we couldn’t recommend Studio Skey enough.

NOEL, PROJECT 117
Low-key but high-end, the pair’s aesthetic may seem straightforward, but everything from the finishes to the flow has been carefully considered… The result is luxury in its simplest form: the absence of fuss and complication.

studio.skey transformed our old building by reconfiguring the whole shape of the original such that it has transformed into a delightful home which is spacious, stylish & wonderful to live in.

We purchased a house in January 2020 which hadn't been touched for 40 years, in fact, it was difficult to believe that anyone had lived there such was the state it was in. studio.skey transformed our old building by reconfiguring the whole shape of the original such that it has transformed into a delightful home which is spacious, stylish & wonderful to live in.

They advised on everything from wall placements, new window locations right through to paint colours. Planning was passed without difficulty due to their attention to detail & clever referencing of the local environment, especially fortunate as the house is in a conservation area. We had ideas & a style of our own but were happily led into new spheres of bathroom finishes (waterproof plaster finish), ‘living brass’ taps, kitchen worktops of beautiful natural marble & the list goes on. studio.skey sourced wonderful key elements which together with their stunning vision have resulted in a dream home which is commented on by all who visit, and even by passers by!

studio.skey devised a beautiful narrative to fit the house’s location and original architectural style.

I downsized from what had been our family home for 33 years, I bought a flat that had great bones and potential but was unloved and in very poor condition. I wanted to create something beautiful, so I engaged studio.skey to help me do so.

I’m thrilled with the result, the transformation has exceeded my expectations. There are lovely little details everywhere and I love the way the design flows through the whole flat. I told Georgina and Sophie that I wanted minimalist, modern, comfortable and feminine - and that’s what I got!

I’m so happy that I have this beautiful space to enjoy. So far I have had my friends to stay, held a big birthday party and several dinners. My granddaughters love spending time here and the space works brilliantly for them too.

JACKY, Project 113
Amazing designers. Completely grasped our concept and ran with it!

We have the most gorgeous space now for all our staff members to enjoy. Not only did Sophie and Georgina totally understand what we wanted, they also worked so hard to get us the right contractors, suppliers etc and made the whole renovation process so easy! Could not recommend more.

Honed marble, brushed oak and textured plaster allowed Studio Skey to create a refined, feminine feel, which seamlessly blends the modern additions with the original features that they had restored
