An Artful Life studio was founded by interior-architect Kate Whitfield in 2014.  Kate has nearly 20 years of commercial experience creating design concepts and interiors for clients, managing projects from start to finish.

Kate prides herself in building excellent relationships with clients, landlords, contractors and suppliers, and ensures projects are run both creatively and efficiently.  All studio projects are solely managed by Kate giving her clients the confidence that their brand and offering will be enhanced through her design flair and commercial expertise.  Certain projects will involve the help of a trusted team of interior architects, visualisers, graphic designers and design assistants where necessary.

Kate's many years of commercial experience assures clients that not only will the design studio naturally deliver stand-out, striking interiors, but that the spaces will also work elegantly and practically.
