About Black and Milk

Who We Are

Black and Milk is a boutique London interior design studio based in Hampstead. It was established in 2013 by husband and wife Olga and Toly. We have an abundance of experience curating stunning interiors, from compact Soho apartments to family homes in Chelsea. Our interiors simultaneously enhance the architecture of the space and mirror the values of our clients.

As a boutique studio, we are able to offer each client a deeply personalised service that meets their every requirement. Our interiors are designed with the client’s needs at the forefront, executed flawlessly with the finest attention to detail.

We work in tandem with our clients to bring the most refined visions to life, with the finished result a timeless sanctuary that complements even the busiest of urban lifestyles.

Our Philosophy

At the heart of our philosophy is the commitment to treating every project as if it was our own home. We share many of the values of our clients, including the desire for a meticulously designed space and impeccable customer service. Our approach is non-compromising, with all functional and aesthetic requirements met.

The practical aspects of each project are carefully considered. We cleverly allocate our client’s budget, spending more in the areas that hold the greatest significance. All fittings and products are exceptional quality, selected with a timeless yet truly custom aesthetic in mind.

Finally, we believe in a steady progression. It is the combination of creativity, hard work and patience that have enabled Black and Milk to grow from a small studio to one that thrives on successfully delivering big-budget projects.

Our Style

Our work is a reflection of our clients, and we employ an eclectic mix of styles to achieve a truly custom finish, including mid-century, Scandi, industrial and contemporary. All our projects however, are underpinned by the Black and Milk signature of understated luxury; interiors that can be seamlessly integrated into modern life.

Our Founders

Since the creation of Black and Milk in 2013, founders Toly and Olga have been combining their skills to deliver flawless interiors that perfectly encompass the vision of their clients.

Olga, our Creative Director, brings both a creative vision and technical talent to Black and Milk. Inspired by European art and architecture, Olga’s interiors strike the perfect balance of warmth, sophistication and functionality. She applies a fresh, open-minded approach to each project, taking as much time as needed to develop a comprehensive understanding of each client’s needs.

Toly, our Project Manager and co-director, brings coherence and discipline to the design process. He works closely with clients, contractors and the wider team to ensure all milestones are met and the project flows smoothly from start to finish. With a background in management consultancy and project management, Toly’s attention to detail helps guarantee a professional delivery within the client’s timeframe and budget.
