Interior Designers Hampshire, Surrey, London, Sussex, Cotswolds


We are Robert and Tamsin Allen, Fawn Allen's creative directors and founders.

We previously lived in London with careers in the creative industries - Robert was a fashion and portraiture photographer and Tamsin was a creative director in advertising. In 2014, yearning for a slower pace and a deeper connection to nature, we took a leap of faith and embraced the countryside charm of Hampshire. Our new home, a charming thatched cottage, was a stark contrast to our previous high-ceilinged London house, but it was a change we wholeheartedly embraced.

Adapting to the laid-back lifestyle and low-beamed ceilings presented a unique challenge, one that ignited our passion for country home renovations. Soon after settling in, a chance sighting of a deer and her fawns solidified our connection to nature and inspired the name "Fawn."

Fuelled by our combined experiences and previous renovation projects, we saw a gap in the market. Many individuals transitioning to the countryside desire modern aesthetics without sacrificing the unique character of their homes. This realisation led to the birth of Fawn in 2014. We then called ourselves 'Fawn Interiors' and now, ten years later, we have evolved the brand and added the founders' name to it - we are now proud to be trading as 'Fawn Allen'.

As partners, we lead the team, leveraging our complementary strengths and unwavering attention to detail to create distinctive and beautifully finished spaces. We believe each house, like its owner, possesses a unique story, and this narrative forms the foundation of our design philosophy.


Based in our Hampshire office and workshop, we are a team of designers and skilled craftsmen who take pride in our work and in our craft. We are passionate about our work and consider ourselves artisans with an understanding of how important our spaces are to us. Our design style is characterised by excellence, timelessness, and the creativity of blending traditional homes and styles together with modern techniques and contemporary needs. Each component of our interior design, from texture, colour, fittings, and furniture to the use of light, works together in harmony to transform a space into something truly remarkable. 

Our interior architecture side encompasses space planning and overall flow, as well as joinery design, AV systems, floor finishes, and lighting design. Our interior design arm includes kitchen and bathroom design, colour concepts, art procurement and curation, and sourcing from a wide range of fabric, wallpaper, ironmongery, and furniture companies. Our joinery arm crafts remarkable pieces that optimise every corner of space with furniture that is both beautiful and practical. We also work with a range of specialists including structural engineers, architects, and tradesmen, to bring our concepts to life.

When working with a client, our approach is to listen and really understand your needs and the things that matter in your life - your daily life and how you use the space is important to the overall design and solution and we love using our industry knowledge to help our clients realise their dreams.

Our initial meeting is to understand your brief, including budgets, time scale and specific requirements.

We then prepare a letter of appointment which, along with our terms & conditions, forms our contract with you.

Once the signed letter of appointment has been returned and a deposit paid, we develop initial design concepts - we prepare 2 inspirational mood boards covering the entire project, for you to choose from.

We look at the existing floor plans and design a home that not only works for you but also adds value to the property. The work involved at this stage also includes meetings with structural engineers and architects where necessary.

We then progress to a detailed board for each room which starts to look at all sourcing for colours, fixtures, furniture, light fittings and fabrics. This includes kitchen and bathroom design, joinery design, and electrical planning.

If needed, we handle all aspects of the application process.

We prepare tender packs, construction drawings and full project specifications. We source all specialist contractors and trades, manage everyone throughout the renovation, and liaise with Building Control, Historic England and local conservation teams on listed buildings.

We order furniture and arrange delivery, coordinating delivery times with the project completion date.

When everything is complete, we arrange a deep clean of your home and style it for you. It is at this point that we also photograph the project for our portfolio.
