Jacqueline Douglas is a London based Interior designer who brings an artist's sensibilities to every project, where colour is key and narrative is ever present.
Friendly and approachable, Jacqueline loves to work with clients in reinventing their interiors and is on hand to offer a range of advice, whether it be design decisions prior to a refurbishment project, interior styling advice or sourcing of furniture and accessories post build.
Jacqueline was approached by St Paul's Church, West London in order to help them refurbish their huge Gothic Church. The major aim was to adapt the space so that it served many purposes and could accommodate a cross section of users. Jacqueline worked with the church to re-imagine the layout and functionality of the space, which now includes a new commercial eatery (The Spire Cafe), meeting rooms, work/hire meeting space, a creche and offices.
The work involved liaising with Hounslow Council, project managing the work of multiple teams (glazers, builders, decorators) as well as sourcing contract furnishings and overseeing the renovation of 7 new washrooms. Taking over a year to complete, the refurbished church is now considered a hub within the local community and has seen a great uplift in people attending the church and its facilities.
Design starts with a curious mind and, in Jacqueline’s case, this constant willingness to embrace new skills has enabled a wide ranging career.
Trained as a textile designer, Jacqueline has designed for leading fashion and interior brands. Specialising in florals, her work can now be commissioned for bespoke wallpaper and fabric printing.
Subsequently working as a designer for luxury brand, Savoir beds, Jacqueline worked with a team of artisans, collaborating on bespoke, handmade furniture crafted to the highest standards. Consequently, Jacqueline is well practised at taking a brief from conception to production, always maintaining a creative, professional eye.
Whether it's an interior or design project, drawing is at the centre of Jacqueline's practice. Painting from life or photograph, Jacqueline loves to capture the essence of people. Please contact her regarding commissions.
