Clare Winchester, Interior Designer and Lighting Specialist


“When it comes to interior design Clare's creative vision is exceptional. Thank you Clare for your inspiration and your great eye for style and quality.”

Ken Standrin

“Clare Winchester is not like other designers I have known. She does not try to impose her ideas or concepts on you. She becomes the vehicle to express your own personality. She is a great listener and is a great organiser. Her proactive approach ensures that you get exactly what you want when you want it. Clare is undertaking a refurbishment for me later on this year and I know that it will be pain free and be exactly what I want. I would have no hesitation in recommending Clare.”

“Ms Winchester was contracted to design the internal and external living spaces of an urban warehouse conversion. The project scope included sourcing all furniture, soft furnishings, accessories and art, to produce a contemporary look. The implementation of the design was conducted efficiently and within budget. Some items required a custom build by other professionals, work that was managed effectively and in a very professional manner. The design demonstrated great creative flair, yet was practical in producing a comfortable living environment.”

“Clare Winchester worked as an interior designer in my design studio and shop from 1998 - 2002. I found Clare to be an extremely talented interior designer and was always very pleased with the work she did as a representative of my business. When she first came to work for me, she assisted me with my design jobs, but within short order, as I saw her incredible talent and creativity, I gave her full reign to have her own clients. She was an extremely hard worker who obviously loved interior design. She's also a delightful person with a great sense of humour. Clare has a real talent for interiors, a very keen eye, and good management skills, and I would recommend her to anyone who is considering hiring her as their interior designer.”

"Having failed to find any curtain fabric that I liked in two highly-regarded London department stores, I turned to my interior designer Clare Winchester for advice. She immediately produced a book of fabrics that contained exactly the textures and designs that I had been searching for and even included one that echoed the mahogany of the dining table that she knew was the focal point of that room. From then on she handled all the details of the lining and the curtain poles (and hooks and finials!) and commissioned a local seamstress who did a really beautiful job of making up the curtains.

I know of no one else who combines such a good eye with a meticulous attention to detail and an encyclopaedic knowledge of the field. You won't be disappointed! And what's more you will enjoy meeting Clare and working with her."

"Clare has done some very lovely interior design work for me. Everything has been immaculately carried out, and in her quiet, unobtrusive manner, she has steered me in the right direction regarding furniture, fabrics and colours. She is a perfectionist with impeccable taste. I walk through my house with pleasure at all she has done. Although she has moved from my area, I shall use her for all my future work."

“Seeking assistance in decorating a new house that was under construction, I was most fortunate that interior designer Clare Winchester offered to come for a consultation. She looked over the plans for the new house, and determined the items we wished to use from our old house. From the very start Clare was a delight to work with; she seemed to anticipate immediately what my husband and I were trying to accomplish. Clare came up with a design plan using pieces we already had but updating them with new fabrics. She convinced me to try some new colours, which I absolutely love. Her advice in selecting everything from light fixtures to rugs was invaluable.”

“I approached interior designer Clare Winchester in January and indicated that I wanted to redecorate specific areas of my home for a dinner party that was scheduled for less than two months away. I asked her to work a miracle. Clare did indeed work a miracle, because she listened. She successfully completed the project on time. The results were splendid. We had the party and our guests loved the transformation. My husband and I felt we had made an investment in our home. Clare is easy to work with, very friendly and willing to go beyond the call of duty to get the job done in time.”

“My husband and I had the good fortune to work with Clare as she endeavoured to help us redesign and decorate our home. We were very pleased with her ability to accommodate our lifestyle and work in beautiful ideas. She was always prompt, courteous and accessible. I truly enjoyed her candour and sense of humour and appreciated her interior design knowledge and skills. She was a delight to work with and I highly recommend her interior design skills.”

“For the past few months I have the pleasure of working with Ms Clare Winchester. Our original intention was to update one room, but Clare stayed within budget and produced such fantastic results we eventually decided to have her redecorate our entire home. Clare has lived and worked in England as well as for the past few years on both the east and west coasts of the United States. Her education and travel have, I believe, given her a broad range of interior design experiences, in addition to working with people from different cultures and backgrounds.

Her knowledge came in handy on our design project. My husband is from Germany, I am from California. Our tastes were somewhat different. Clare recognized these differences and artfully blended in both our design wants, together with dozens of original ideas. The results are extraordinary. Clare is a kind, sincere individual, and a good listener, the kind of person anyone would be happy to work with."
