Interior design is more than a job it’s my passion.
Hi, my name is Astrid AKU. Of French origin, I grew up in France, Martinique (West Indies) and French Guiana in South America and have lived in London, UK, for the past ten years.
Through my childhood in the Caribbean and South America, I spent lots of time with various ethnic groups, Native Americans and the Bushnengue – descendants of African deported to South America.
I guess this was where my love of architecture, natural, eco-friendly materials, colour and eclectic, individual styles started. I grew to appreciate different tastes and individuality. I also realised beauty and style doesn’t have to be expensive. I saw you can be creative with what you have, and people will love it.
Back in Toulouse, France, I studied Art History at University, although I knew my heart was in interior design.
But serendipity is a wonderful thing, and once I moved to London in 2011, I finally got the opportunity to study Interior Design at Leicester University.
Back in 2016, I started Astrid Interior Design Ltd. At last, I could fulfil my desire to help create beautiful individual homes while providing five-star professional services for my clients.
With the support of my trusted team of professional tradespeople, I live my dream every day of creating fabulous spaces for my clients.
I truly love what I do and hope you do too.
