Justine Hugh-Jones Design is a boutique interior design business whose work is recognised for effortlessly combining crisp, clean architecture with custom upholstery, antique and classic furniture and modern and contemporary art.
The homes I create are elegant but interesting, easy and comfortable and often punctuated with a twist of the unexpected and a dash of humour. The choice of materials and textures is always natural favouring stone, timber and fabrics such as linens, velvets, wools and silks. Muted, calm and natural colours dominate my interior palette punctuated with startling combinations of colour, art and shape which add drama and contrast.
Having lived and studied design in Europe over 10 years my inspiration comes from the fresh and distinctive feel of European living with influences from France, Belgium, and Scandinavia. I established my practice here in Sydney in 2004 and my design has adapted to take advantage of light, open plan interiors and outdoor living.
As a designer, I look beyond aesthetics and pursue a philosophy of reclaiming and reintegrating an element of humanity into the home. My client’s homes feel like they have evolved and acquired character and layers over the years and are immensely comfortable and welcoming.
An eye for detail, style and luxury distinguishes all of my work.
