Egon Walesch is a London-based designer, specialising in interior, garden and floral design, and full of enthusiasm for the way in which great design can transform people’s lives.
Egon finds inspiration in his clients’ taste and personalities as well as the architecture and history of the space. He makes the design process fun and interactive for a diverse range of clients, cultivating fresh, functional modern spaces with a strong sense of character and style.
The leap from drawing-board to reality is never easy. He helps to source the furniture and other elements that will bring your space to life. He knows that budgets can easily be outstripped by creativity and will always suggest approaches in different price categories so you can keep control of your budget without compromising on style. When it comes to building the space, he can work with your favourite teams, or, if you prefer, can recommend builders, decorators and other workers in the UK and Ireland.
Egon likes to incorporate modern classics from the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s into his designs, simply because he loves pieces that stand out for their beauty, quality and functionality. In many cases, the unfussy shapes of ‘mid century’ design fit all these criteria. Placing them in a new context, or against pieces from other periods, creates a dynamism that is timeless.
In terms of colour, he freely admit to being addicted to the Farrow and Ball paint range, not just for its variations on beige and grey, but also for its subtle, but intense, pinks, blues, greens and so on. Mixing patterns, forms and textures in a limited palette can result in a colour scheme that is interesting without being glaring.
