About Helene Dabrowski Interiors
Helene Dabrowski Interiors is a friendly and professional interior design studio who creates stylish and eclectic individual interiors. They believe interior design should be a fun and enjoyable experience which will save you time and money.
Helene has built strong relationships with architects and contractors to work hand in hand ensuring that the designs are delivered as envisaged.
Helene says ” my primary aim is to discover what my clients lifestyle are when doing a project and adapting to it with my experience of design using colours, patterns and forms. I also love mixing old and new, art, and meaningful craft items. Avoiding being categorised into one thing I guess my style is slightly eclectic and flexible creating a trendy, timeless and comfortable environment with elements of fun.
I like to think of myself as an interior colorist and view spaces as painting, needing strong composition and multiple of layers. I am easy to get on with and a good listener which is essential to understand clients lifestyle and to discover what makes them happy in term of design. This is like detective work. My clients are always an integral part of the decision making process at every stage.
I love the fact this is a business that is forever changing and you need to constantly adapt. I like exploring new trends, suppliers and designs which keeps the job exiting. My favorite part is the process of space transformation and the end result.”

More About Helene Dabrowski Interiors
After studying psychology and marketing in Paris and working in an advertising agency in London, Helene realised that this career path was not going to satisfy her need for creativity and decided to change career. She has not looked back since and have been in interior design for the past 25 years and loving it.
I was introduced to Hélène Dabrowski by the builder who was undertaking a major renovation of my four-storey property.
I had not engaged an interior designer before and felt somewhat apprehensive about the process. The task of completely refurbishing our rather tired home was too daunting for me to micro-manage every detail, however, could a stranger really ‘get’ my taste?
From the outset, I was impressed with Hélène’s manner. She quietly, but most effectively, absorbed information about me and my family and helped to plot a path to the finished design. As I sit here in my wonderful new kitchen/den, I am struck again by the enormity of the task – Hélène was working with someone who really didn’t have much idea of what she wanted, couldn’t read a floor plan and was used to buying furnishings ad hoc. With great patience and skill, Hélène created a truly beautiful home. After a very short time, her instinct for what I would love was uncannily accurate. She found me fabrics that evoked memories she couldn’t have known I had – she suggested furnishings I wouldn’t have been able to track down by myself. Two days after my father passed away, she lighted upon a Venetian mirror. My father loved Venice and this was yet another example of the simpatico relationship we had developed.
I would not hesitate to recommend Hélène. If I had to name the single most important benefit for me, I would say it was Hélène’s ability to make the process so stress-free and enjoyable. And to appear as if she enjoyed it too!
