In Conversation: British Designer Flora Soames and Mitchell Owens

British interior designer Flora Soames founded her firm in 2009 and launched an acclaimed collection of fabrics and wallpapers in 2019. She is one of British House & Garden’s Top 100 designers. Informed by her background in art and furniture, her style exudes the traditional charm of English country homes while incorporating modern, original touches that are comfortable and design-led. This embrace of old and new—along with Soames’s passion for collecting, heritage, color, and pattern—has resulted in an impressive portfolio of projects in the UK and beyond.

Journalist and American Editor of The World of Interiors, Mitchell Owens will speak to Soames about her reflections on the concept of home and discuss some of her design projects—including her refurbished cottage in Dorset—featured in her new book by Rizzoli, The One Day Box: A Life-Changing Love of Home (2023)
