Nikki Atkinson is regarded as a top choice of interior designer for bankers, hedge fund managers and international clients. Her work usually nods to the classical, but always with a creative modern twist. Based in London and Oxfordshire, she specialises in beautiful architectural based designs. This position makes her ideally placed to produce the sorts of interiors that feature in glossy magazines, but clients come from all over the UK and further afield. According to one happy client, she likes to have ‘plenty of talks’ before anything is decided. The client relationship is particularly important to Atkinson, who is able to keep costs down due to making sure client and designer are of a mind from the outset.
