About Cliveden Design

Cliveden Design founder Gill Hynes is a property developer and interior designer with a passion for creating beautiful interiors – be this one room, a small apartment or a large house. Her philosophy is to work with her clients to create sophisticated design solutions that blend comfort and practicality seamlessly.

“We don’t always have the time, expertise or vision to create perfect spaces within our home. Having managed both my own and client projects I understand the importance of working collaboratively to take what exists today, maximise its potential, and transform this into a new more appealing and engaging environment that will deliver pleasure.”

We Love Gill Hynes Because…

Gill has been a member of The Decorcafe for a number of years, during which time she has finished the rennovation of her Cliveden home, furnished and decorated a rental property in the new Battersea Power Station development and embarked on (and completed with distinction) the KLC Interior Design Diploma. She is a fantastic project manager with the attention to detail to ensure the highest quality of finish on any property development or interior design project.

More About Gill Hynes

Gill is a relatively newly qualified interior designer but she is no stranger to property development and decorative projects. Working with her architect and builders she gained experience in coordinating the specification and souring of bathrooms & kitchens, flooring, lighting, and joinery whilst renovating a large family home she bought as an investment property and sold in 2007.

Based alongside the river in Putney Gill’s business Cliveden Design is named after her house ‘Cliveden’ which she lovingly and meticulously restored from a tired property subdivided into rental units back into a comfortable and characterful home. This is Gill’s home and has become as much a haven as a fun place to entertain and party.

She has also worked for clients on 2 separate central London apartment projects, involving sourcing and installing a new kitchen and bathroom, living room joinery, renovation and decoration. All the time focusing on the balance between her client’s vision, strict budget control, and delivering practical and high quality end results.

Most recently she has worked on a project to source furniture, accessories, and style a penthouse apartment ready for rental in the prestigious Battersea Power Station development.

Her previous career in marketing working with high profile client branding and customer engagement initiatives have equipped her with skills that are invaluable in the property and design sphere; effectively interpreting client briefings, tightly managing project schedules and presenting creative concepts. In 2017 Gill completed a certificate in Interior Design from KLC (passed with Distinction) and is a Provisional Member of BIID.

Gill is adept at modernising and styling properties to maximise their sale and rental potential.
