meet the dream team

Each of us is different but design unites us.

We love space and light, colours, textures and functionality. We fall in love with buildings. Our superpower is to see how spaces look in future.

We love to get to know you, learn more about your lifestyle, business and routine, create a perfect environment to enjoy your new space. Solving tricky tasks of big and small interiors is in our DNA. We always give a little bit more than you expect.

We combine expertise and experience of architecture and interior design to achieve the best result. We undertake all stages from feasibility research and design concept, to planning, construction drawings, lighting design, sourcing finishes and furniture, designing bespoke joinery, etc.

For us every project as unique as its client.

what people say about us

"Everyone loved the studio and what you have done with it. The magazine owner said there is so much positive energy and wants a similar office!"

Reem J. Al-Dhaheri

Founder & Head Designer, London

Their suggestion added sophistication and elegance to the space and made it a beautiful feature in our flat. We were impressed with their level of knowledge, care and attention to detail throughout. We couldn’t be happier with the results. We would wholeheartedly recommend Barbarella Studio to anyone re-thinking their interiors.

Sophia A,

Residential Client, SW1 London

"Faced with a fairly unpromising space with low ceilings and little natural light Barbarella proposed a spacious layout, with a welcoming and quirky feel, totally on the mark for us. Following the success of the reception area we worked with Julie and Anna to freshen up our Sound Centre corridors, for which they designed a bespoke carpet with Brintons which is hugely popular with staff and visiting luminaries. Most recently Barbarella designed and implemented our roof top members bar, The Lounge. We really value Anna and Julie's work for the Studios, they listen carefully, plan well and execute all of their projects for us with professionalism, style and humour."

Maria Walker,

COO, TW1 Studios, London, UK

"Before meeting Anna and Julie we had absolutely no idea how we wanted our studio to look and feel.  After a 1 hour sit down with them both, they had drawn the concept out of us with helpful cues and thoughtful suggestions.  The result? The top fitness boutique in London attracting celebrities and the top athletes in the city.  They helped us utilise a fairly small 1000 sq ft space and capture a colour scheme that to this day motivates everyone that walks in to the place.  I couldn’t recommend them strongly enough."

Niko Algeri,

Director, Equilibrium Gym, London, UK


"Barbarella have been excellent for My 1st Years. They really understood the brand and the exact requirements for each department store.

The brand will certainly be using them again many times over and find their boutique service second to none."

Daniel Price,

Director, My 1st Years, London, UK
