Doyne-Ditmas and Courteney Interior Design


Established in 2014 and with studios in London and Devon, our practice has the experience and expertise to design and implement a wide range of projects in both traditional and contemporary styles. Projects range from the simplest addition of new decorative elements to the comprehensive design service for an entire property.

We approach each project with a fresh eye, interpreting and tailoring clients’ tastes, vision and priorities, as well as articulating the character of the house and setting. Our aim is to enhance or create timeless, elegant and comfortable homes to live in every day, and our love of natural materials and quality craftsmanship underpins this design ethos. We take pride in ensuring a structured and enjoyable partnership with our clients; perceptive and efficient, we focus on the detail to create a balanced, welcoming and practical design with longevity and soul, making the most of your investment in your home.

Our considered layering of colour, texture and finishes, the understated elegance of our aesthetic, our confidence in blending the simple with the unexpected, and our friendly, versatile approach are the characteristics of our work.

Prior to forming Doyne-Ditmas and Courteney, Emily and Lara gained invaluable experience at two of the country’s top interiors practices. Through their years at Sims Hilditch and Louise Jones Interiors, where they met, they were responsible for overseeing every detail of projects, from concept to completion. Lara and Emily both completed their formal training at London’s KLC School of Design.

If you would like to get in touch for an informal chat to discuss your project we would be delighted to hear from you.


Our team of professionals is able to provide a complete interior design and detailing service from concept through to completion of the project, but also regularly consults on individual design and decorative elements. We have a well researched and extensive little black book of trusted industry contacts and work consistently alongside premium suppliers, architects, artisans and builders.


Previous projects at other practices include high end residential design across the UK and internationally.
