McCarthy & Co is a boutique design practice, focused on creating interiors that are authentic and emotive. Led by Lorna McCarthy, it was born out of a desire to create authentic, layered interiors and develop meaningful relationships with clients and suppliers. Combining this with Lorna's coveted eye for colour, texture and detail the result is interiors that feel curated and livable.
At the heart of McCarthy & Co is Lorna's extensive collective, her 'little black book', of makers, artists and craftspeople, whom she collaborates with on every project to weave one of a kind pieces into everyday life. We support small businesses wherever possible, favoring the 'shop small' mentality over mass produced. Based in London, Lorna's speciality is applying an intuitive approach to each project. Studying History of Art has given Lorna a different approach to interior design, allowing an innate and in depth understanding of style, space, composition and colour which she applies to the creative direction of every project. Not distracted by trends, instead she turns to seeking inspiration from a wide range of sources - be it a fabric, work of art or client's own possession.
Lorna is adept at working directly with her clients or closely with their property development or design team to focus on furniture, finishes, lighting, accessorising and styling. She also undertakes interior styling projects on a case by case basis. For more information on our services or how we work please contact Lorna at firstname.lastname@example.org
