Before turning to interior design, Peter Mikic pursued the path of fashion, with a RMIT-awarded education and years of industry experience leading to his own successful menswear line. This sartorial background shines through in his interior and furniture design, renowned for an acute attention to detail, confident referencing of bygone eras, and the use of opulent fabrics and sharp tailoring for a high-style, high-glamour end. Despite coming to interiors later in his career, Mikic’s work across private houses, jets and yachts and fearless, can-do approach has already earned him a place in the top interior designer lists in AD Collector, House and Garden and Elle Decoration.

Dubbed “the modern master of French interiors”, interior designer, architect and furniture and lighting designer Jean-Louis Deniot sits in the world 100 lists for architecture and interior design in both Architectural Digest and Elle Decor. Renowned for his playful, avant-garde approach to interiors, Deniot’s design traverses centuries as he artfully draws inspiration and picks pieces from multiple periods – combining the refined style of 18th century France with 20th- and 21st-century influences for a classical-meets-contemporary chic finish. Internationally sought after, his past projects run from Parisian mansions and New Delhi palaces to a 70s-stye Colombian apartment and an entire estate in Monaco.
Founded in 1964, much of fêted interior design firm Mlinaric, Henry & Zervudachi’s early work concentrated on important English properties – many of them National Trust – evolving to turn its discerning eye onto private international homes, arts spaces and grand commercial projects such as London’s National Gallery and Royal Opera House, Porto Montenegro marina and embassies in Washington and Paris. With the company for over a decade, partner Laurence Macadam’s work typifies MHZ’s focus on understated elegance, combining a natural eye for harmonious composition – in part informed by his Kyoto upbringing – with a love of traditional craftsmanship.
Classed last year as one of the world’s top 100 interior designers by Architectural Digest, and featured in House and Garden’s leading 100 UK designers list since 2009, furniture and interior designer Douglas Mackie’s philosophy is to perfectly balance furniture, art and sculpture, incorporating diverse textures and colours to create opulent, multi-sensory spaces. From Holland Park houses and Tudor mansions to Middle Eastern penthouses, architecture graduate Mackie is beloved for his sumptuous, sophisticated aesthetic and keen appreciation for art, well-versed in integrating serious art collections and antiques into design schemes.
A leading name in prime London property since first forming his practice in 1982, developer Richard Collins has masterminded some of London’s most celebrated homes – an industry go-to for high-spec projects (homes are personally tested, even inhabited, to ensure they match his own exacting standards) on high-profile plots, particularly in the Royal Boroughs. Labelled “the best residential developer in London”, his name “a byword in the property business for modern luxury”, notable projects include Chelsea’s acclaimed Painter’s Yard development, Battersea’s Richard Rogers-designed Montevetro development and The Old Toy Museum in Notting Hill.

This combination of design acumen and understanding of the natural world has attracted such high-profile clients as The Connaught, the RA and HM the Queen.
