Natalia Barbour grew up in Russia and was immersed in the richness of art and grandeur of architecture from a young age. She graduated with a Masters (Hons) in French Linguistics and wrote her thesis on the works of Flaubert and Mauriac. An appreciation of literature and art combined with extensive travel and residence in different parts of the world enhances her appreciation of style and breadth of design knowledge.
Natalia is a certified Interior Designer who studied at the KLC school of London. She founded Natalia Barbour design in 2008 and the business quickly grew to become an established and recognized name in luxurious interior design.
THE NB DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“The most fascinating part of interior design for me is to create a home for my clients that is truly an expressive extension of their personality – a beautiful home that reaches the soul of its owners. A home that not only looks good, but feels right.
A true home isn’t about faddish hotel looks that are seen the world over, but about timeless style, pieces you fall in love with, matched with a strong structure and good taste. It’s about pulling a look together with flair, elegance and balance to create a scheme that calms and enriches the senses. Working in harmony with the property’s architecture and surroundings ensures the enhancement of its value.”
I have always been apprehensive about using an interior designer, feeling that my personality would be lost from my home, but how wrong I was. Natalia and Charlotte gave my sitting room the design and flair it was lacking without compromising my style. Thank you both.

Natalia has a sophisticated eye that provides you with a design and ambience that is truly original. Her delivery of the whole project that she designed for us was outstanding.

Natalia has an exceptional eye for the right design tailored to suit you as individuals and your home. We now enjoy luxurious wallpaper throughout our home, contemporary TV unit furniture and high end window dressings (without the price tag you would expect) which we never ever would have managed to imagine or source without her invaluable expertise and design insight. Highly recommended!

I can’t recommend this company highly enough. Natalia redesigned our sitting and dining rooms we couldn’t be happier with them. After initial consultation we didn’t do anything, she did it all! Good job, well done!
Deciding to work with Natalia was one of the best decisions my husband and I have made. We’ve always loved interior design, and both have strong opinions about what we like – however marrying the two together has previously been a disaster. Natalia paid particular attention to our likes/dislikes and came up with a design that can only be described as exactly what we wanted, but didn’t have the talent to produce ourselves!
Our living room has been transformed from a magnolia mess into a stylish and comfortable haven, and the dining room is the entertaining space we longed for. We feel so grateful for the attention to detail and effort that went into our home. Natalia and her team have made redecorating an absolute pleasure – I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Natalia has a unique intuitive approach to design and I was delighted by the results that she delivered for the AH Men stage set which were classy and effective.
Natalia created amazing effects with clever use of accessories and tenacious attention to detail. I gave Natalia complete control and minimum direction and she created exactly the right atmosphere for each scene on a very tight budget. Thank you sooooo much, Natalia. x

Our project was to launch a new high street Beauty and Day Spa business that was different and stood out on the high street. Our brand name was Idyllic Beauty Day Spa and we commissioned Natalia Barbour Design to work with us on the design of the salon to meet our clear but challenging brief. Natalia grasped the vision for our business extremely quickly, and worked exceptionally hard with her team to design something that would be “an idyllic retreat from a busy world” and would be the fresh new brand on the high street that stood out from the competition. The salon has received universal acclaim from our clients who say that the salon is the best that they have experienced. Not only did Natalia do an excellent job on the actual design of the salon to the very smallest level of detail, but she also project managed the transformation of the premises over 3 months, co-ordinating all of the trades and arranged procurement of fixtures, fittings, decoration, flooring and furniture. We are delighted with the end product which has exceeded our expectations.
