Whether her clients’ briefs are for modern, clean and simple or layered, ethnic and vibrant, Elizabeth can turn her hand to any design sensibility. You can see from her portfolio that her projects all contain the same attention to detail, but vary in style depending on the clients requirements and the style of architecture of the house/apartment that she is working on. She prides herself on delivering to her clients the best interpretations of their briefs. Whilst Elizabeth has completed many large scale renovation projects she enjoys just as much working on small soft furnishing projects or making clients single pieces of custom furniture. She applies the same attention to detail to every project no matter the size or budget.
Elizabeth has carefully built up a network of trusted suppliers and craftsmen to create interiors of a high quality that both she and her clients expect. The unique look of each of her completed projects reflects her wide and global list of suppliers. Before relocating to Singapore Elizabeth trained at Colefax and Fowler and was then a senior designer at Veere Grenney Associates (Architectural Digest top 100 global designers) where she project managed highly detailed large scale projects in Mustique, Ibiza, London, Jackson Hole, New York, The Hamptons and various other locations. This extensive travel and well over a decade of working on global projects has given Elizabeth a unique and invaluable bank of design knowledge.
At Elizabeth Hay Design we love to create layered interiors using rich schemes with patterns and textures. Elizabeth is passionate about beautiful fabrics and their stories. The fabrics that comprise her library are mostly artisanal from small boutique firms each with their own unique characteristics and techniques, and she knows most of her suppliers personally. Her true passions are colour and pattern and creating interiors that feel like loved homes. Elizabeth has a large collection of antique textiles that she has collected over the years – from the Ivory Coast, The Congo, Japan, India, Uzbekistan and India to name a few. She loves to incorporate these into her projects whether on an ottoman, headboard, cushion or simply a throw on a bed or back of a sofa. Antique and vintage textiles are a great way to add something original and one off to the home and we love using them in our interiors!
