Interior Design is about a whole host of things.
It’s about experience design. Emotional design. Sensorial design.
Yes, a space should delight the eye, but it runs deeper than that.
Interior design is about harnessing the power of a space to make us feel.
To feel centered. Welcome. Liberated. Inspired.
How can interior spaces help us lead happier, healthier, better lives?
And for those spaces to do so effortlessly?
This is the challenge I set myself.

We typically start by asking, ‘How do you want to feel in this space?’

The Joinery


To say we’re a bit passionate about joinery is something of an understatement.

Bespoke joinery really is a luxury – but it has also never been a more accessible and affordable design option.

‘The Joinery’, our in-house team, are taking bespoke joinery to the next level, while still building cost-effective solutions for our clients.

While “Master craftsmen” might sound a bit grand, they really are masters and magicians at what they do, with the skills, lateral-thinking and finesse to create spaces that are as tailored as they are remarkable.

Spaces of any shape and size, tiny or cavernous, can all be designed to feel personal and intuitive, with a range of bespoke joinery options, where the end results are never less than stunning in their level of detail and overall impact.

When we say bespoke, we mean bespoke. As in: from scratch. With absolute care, in pursuit of absolute finish. Works that will stand the test of time and only ever add value and pleasure to a client’s property.

Form. Function. Flow.
Sometimes great design is about taking away.
Sometimes it’s about adding and layering.
Lifestyle ergonomics. Creating cognitive harmony. Listening to instinct and introducing what just feels right.
There’s a lot of right and left brain involved in creating gorgeous, functional spaces.

Ali Hearn
Dining space

In very open plan layouts, it’s especially important to think about zoning.
About those visible and often invisible demarcations of usage. That play into patterns of behaviour. The social zones. The working zones. A nook to tuck yourself away in, to take 5, to recharge or read a book. A low, super-comfy, oversized wrap-around sofa for family movie night. A corner of the kitchen that can double as a workspace for taking Zoom calls... where the the sightlines don’t shout, “Guess who’s in their kitchen!”

Girls can do any-thing
Girls can do any-thing

Yes, girls can... but in my case, only if they have an amazing team alongside them… that’s actually a MIX of girls AND boys!

Behind the scenes, every Studio commission is developed and turned into reality by a pool of immensely talented individuals. It’s a team I’ve worked with for some time now, ‘tried and tested’, who I trust 100%, where I know they have my back, know they’ll do the very best for our projects and where I know we’ll always enjoy working together. The volume of live projects we can handle, home and abroad, is only made possible by the hard work of everyone at ALIHEARN STUDIOS.

Ali Hearn

At ALIHEARN STUDIOS, what we do is incredibly important to us. And how we do it is just as important.

The manner in which we do things. Our approach. The considerations and choices we make and the consequences that follow. To us: vitally important.

How we treat people. How we work with them. How we show kindness. Compassion. How we act fairly. Openly. Ethically. To us: vitally important.

Where and how we manufacture and source materials is of crucial concern to us. Provenance. Authenticity. Integrity. Not words to skirt over, but principles that inform our design work.

Actions come with outcomes. It’s as simple as that to us. And just as simply, we only ever want to create the right kind of ripples.

To us: great design is human design and human design must also have a very real sense of humanity coded in its DNA.

Because breathtakingly beautiful spaces have to be beautiful on the inside as well as the out.


When people invite us into their home, they’re inviting us into their daily lives and they’re inviting us to get to know them. We don’t take these invitations lightly.

For us, it’s a privilege working with our clients to create their dream homes. And aside from privilege, words like ‘responsibility’ and ‘commitment’ just as importantly apply.

While every home project is unique, every project is the same in that it’s always highly creative, immersive, and emotionally involving. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. In our opinion, it’s the only way the job - the job of truly great home design - can be done. And we love doing it.

Other design studios may have a different process and may view their responsibility differently, but we believe our approach sets us apart.

We’re especially proud of what’s said in our ‘Book of Kind Words’ - because these are the words of our clients. They represent fun times and good memories, recent and distant, of projects that still perform their role long after our work was done and we waved goodbye. And in more than a few cases, these words also represent the beginnings of new and dear friendships, where it’s always lovely to pop back for a chat, a cup of coffee or, sure - twist our arm - a glass of something bubblier.

There was never any sense of pressure to buy the most expensive pieces. Ali and her team understand that there always needs to be value for money in the equation.
