With over twenty-five years’ worth of experience, it’d be fair to say Nicky Percival’s personal style and attention to detail is pretty on point. Her architectural approach to design stems from her background in film, theatre and television; this combined with her passion for interiors in some way explains how she creates beautifully classic homes to accommodate every space, taste and budget. Her style exudes elegance, simplicity and above all practicality which her own home, located in Kent reflects perfectly.
Before setting up her own business in 2015, Nicky worked for Laura Ashley and Roundhouse Design focusing on all things bespoke and high-end, from commercial design to hotel interiors. Now based in Tunbridge Wells, Nicky Percival ltd promises to design truly unique spaces to be admired but more importantly, enjoyed
