Anita Bourne, Interior Designer
Anita's fixation with interior design began in the late '80's in her first role as assistant to renowned British Architect and Interior Designer, Michael Sumner. She subsequently went on to study at Chelsea's KLC, one of the UK's leading design schools and has since been creating luxury residential interiors for London based clients. Anita has developed a contemporary signature style with a timeless, modern classic edge and established Definitive Interior Design in 2011. Inspired by architectural details, colour, texture and natural elements, her creativity is fueled researching and sourcing for new projects, she particularly enjoys designing bespoke furniture and soft furnishings and regularly visits trade shows and design exhibitions hunting for new design-led products, cutting edge technology and unexpected statement pieces to incorporate into her projects.
Anita believes that by taking time to carefully analyse the way in which clients use their homes and gaining an insight into their personal taste and style, she is able to clearly translate ideas and aspirations. With an intuitive approach to optimising space by introducing bespoke storage solutions, ambient lighting, a fluent colour palate and custom designed furnishings, Anita essentially creates unique blueprints that reflect her client’s individual lifestyles and personalities.
Based in West Dulwich, South London, Anita lives with her husband and two children, she enjoys travel, photography, good food, soul music, dancing, the great outdoors and walking her dog.
