When & what made you start Caroline Touzeau Design?
I started my own business 20 years ago and have re-branded this year.


Working on residential projects, what are your top style tips to make a space feel inviting, unique and inspiring?
Colour and lighting are always inviting, bespoke items and elements of design always keep things unique with a personal individual style to keep one inspired.


What’s the one piece of advice you would tell your younger self?
Hard work pays off!


What’s your favourite part of any project?
I do enjoy soft furnishings as in fabrics, rugs, art and bespoke decorative items and achieve my love of colour often through these pieces.

If you could style anyone’s home, whose would it be?
I would love to style Ellen Degeneres & Portia da Rossi’s home. Ellen has expressed her love of interior design so it would be fantastic to work with someone who has a passion and bring it to life for them. Plus, l can’t begin to imagine how funny that journey would be!


What’s your go-to rug?
For me, it’s 100% wool as l love the warmth of it and the feeling underfoot. And, of course, a bit of colour in its backdrop.


Any key pieces, trends or colour palettes you are loving at the moment?
I don’t really stick to trends, but l am enjoying a mix of lights in old and new properties l’m working on. I love colour palettes in soft pastel tones, as well as bright on bright with pattern on pattern. And then there’s fabulous styling and greenery to finish a look.

It’s always hard selecting for yourself.

Missoni homewares fashion.
