Marion Lichtig is an acclaimed interior designer who has been in the business for over thirty years. She is renowned for working in harmony with the homeowner and for her trademark user-friendly style. Over the years she has worked with a wide variety of clients on everything from small renovations to major design and build projects.
Marion says: “I favour a simple, relaxed, clean look and am attracted to clear and pared-down symmetry. My style is classical yet understated; I believe design is about the careful balance of the contemporary and classic. I like a room to look as though it belongs to the present while incorporating elements of the past, working with colours of nature.”
"A house should feel like it has evolved over time – even if it has been put together by me over a limited period. I don't like rooms that feel dominated by the decorator's taste: everything should look effortless and unplanned. As for my biggest aspiration: it's for my clients to enjoy the entire process as well as the end-result."
Marion trained in fashion and textiles at Central St Martin's and spent several years in the antiques trade before moving into interiors. She has designed properties in London, the English countryside and seaside, and has recently been involved in several projects in the Swiss Alps, including two chalets in Verbier. She has been included in the last three editions of The House & Garden Directory of the 100 Leading Interior Designers.
