About

Welcome, it's great to meet you and we're really glad you're here.
I'm Dan, and together with Matt, we'll design you an interior that'll set you apart.

As a multi-passionate creative, I've worked on fashion shows for Alexander McQueen;
for brands like Moschino; with infamous fashion editor Isabella Blow and for the
publications Italian Vogue, i-D, The Face, Sunday Times, Guardian and the Independent.

I started Studio Hazeldean in 2017 and Matt joined in 2018.
Based in London, we design thoughtful, unique interiors for intelligent creatives.

Why we create interiors

We believe, when you redesign your home, you transform your life.
Think that's a big ask? Read what Mia had to say below, when we redesigned hers.

A well designed interior can make you happier, more relaxed, more productive, make entertaining tremendous fun (and who doesn't want more fun), and even improve your sleep. It'll bring you pleasure, every time you walk through the door.

' I love coming home.
I would come home before and think,
I can't live in this house, we've got to move!'

What we do

We move your life forward

You've got dreams and ambitions. Everyone does.
And a big part of this is where you live.
So your home needs to match your ambitions.
To reflect who you're becoming and where your life's going.
How do we do this?
We understand you, and then push your boundaries (gently of course).
It's only by doing this that your interior will really wow people and move your life forward.

But we won't bulldoze you

Yes, we'll push your boundaries.
But we won't trample on your thoughts and ideas.
We'll listen and understand you.
It's a collaboration every step of the way.
So the end result is 100% you.

'I felt relieved you were someone I could talk to,
which was really important.
It's a relationship and I really liked you as a person.
It's not just, you came in and did our house and that's it'

We save you time

With the time it takes to design your home, you could

enjoy a spa break
every weekend for a year
travel the world
for 3 months
or watch every series
on Netflix

So why waste your time measuring every inch of your apartment?
Leave that to us, and spend the time on the fun things in life.

We take the stress

We get how life is today. With work, events, organising and to do lists, you've got tons on your plate.
Do you want to be co-ordinating 30 different suppliers, to seamlessly harmonise the hundreds of elements in your home?
We'll take all this stress and handle everything, so you can enjoy planning the grand reveal.

And manage costs

So you're not sinking in a nightmare money pit (remember the 80's film with Tom Hanks?), your project needs faultless organisation.
We'll obsess about all the tiny details so costs won't spiral out of control.
Don't fret, there'll be no need to start buying all your wine from the supermarket.

We set you apart

We don't do generic hotel room luxury.
Just like you, our interiors are unique, thoughtful, and subtly sophisticated.
We design for intelligent creatives who know the difference between lambswool and cashmere.
Our designs have a modern Japanese and Scandinavian style.
They're minimal, tonal and relaxed.

Who we are

dan

At school, I didn’t have a clue what I wanted to do with my life. I loved art, but was also good at trigonometry and dissecting frogs. In the end, I listened to my teachers and chose a ‘sensible career’ - medicine. To a 16 year old, being a doctor sounded pretty cool and important.

But by the third year at medical school I realised - ‘Big Mistake’. I’d rather be studying Dazed and Confused than Gray's Anatomy. I was desperate to be creative. I even painted the floor, walls and ceiling of my room vibrant purple, green and orange (much to the horror of my landlady). But I also wanted to finish my degree, and three years later I was a junior doctor working 100+ hours a week. It wasn’t me and I felt suffocated. I had to follow my dream. So I quit, and my creative journey began!

From fashion make-up artist to studying interior design, over the next 15 years I developed a multi-passionate creative career. I lived in Paris and London; worked on fashion shows for Alexander McQueen and John Galliano; for brands from Moschino to Kilgour; with PR agencies like Purple; with infamous fashion editor Isabella Blow and for the publications Italian Vogue, i-D, The Face, Sunday Times, Guardian and the Independent. All the time, expanding my experience and growing creatively.

In 2017 I was approached by several private clients in Paris to design their homes.
The studio was born and moved to London in 2018.

fun facts on me

  1. I’m obsessed with Body Attack exercise class - the more insane the better
  2. I love electronic and 80's music - from Jeff Mills to Human League
  3. My favourite indulgence - Paul A Young chocolates (inventive flavours like bakewell tart)

What's your pricing?

What's your pricing?

We set a fixed fee at the beginning of the project. This means you know exactly what you’ll pay at the start.

There’s a couple of exceptions. For things that are difficult to predict, like site visits, we charge an hourly rate.
And for extras like custom designed furniture, we quote separately. Otherwise, everything’s included.

Without assessing your project it’s impossible to give you a price.
But generally the interior design takes around 12% of the budget.

Remember. You’ll

  • get a stunning interior that’ll wow your friends and transform your life
  • save hundreds of hours of your time for the fun things
  • eliminate a huge amount of stress, organisation and costly mistakes

There’s a section in our guide that’ll tell you everything on pricing.
