Stephanie Dunning is one of those designers who has a wealth of knowledge and experience having designed schemes and interiors for private clients throughout the UK and overseas since 1989.
Bold and bubbly you can see why clients appreciate her honesty and skill at turning their dreams into reality. Her innate love of colour and gorgeous fabrics and appreciation for superb design underpins all her commissions. Based from her Design Studio, a converted barn in the heart of Wiltshire, Stephanie and her team work on a series of high end private client's homes including Heads of State, international home owners, country and city owners, architects and property developers. Currently commissions include a beautiful Georgian town house on the banks of the River Test, a historic country house surrounded by a private estate overlooking the Beaulieu River. Whilst in Berkshire she has recently completely refurbished an 18th century cottage with its very own War Room. Plus a private Mustique villa is in the process of a complete re-design while a bachelor's pied a térre in Mayfair has been whipped into shape.
Her bespoke service covers the gamut from kitchen and bathroom design, to detailed electrical and mechanical layouts to soft furnishings and bespoke furniture and of course project management and budget control.
Everything really got rolling when Stephanie was in her 20s. Whilst working with her father's construction business, she learnt the art of detailed technical drawing which she still uses to kick start all her projects today. She gradually got into buying and selling London houses, completely refurbishing them before selling and moving on to the next project. It was at this time that, and having just finished working a stint with Nina Campbell, she was asked to quickly run up the curtains for King Hussein's London office. No problem. This was done and it immediately led to more business and the start of her life as an interior designer. Stephanie was previously Deputy Chair of the BIDA.
Stephanie, now in her early 50s, married to Peter Everard of The English Joinery Company, with seven children between them lives in a recently re-constructed 18th century house close to Salisbury. With only one original wall remaining in situ, the whole house has been completely rebuilt utilising superbly crafted joinery and details. It has just been featured in Homes & Gardens making front cover too. Stephanie Dunning is a member of the BIID.
