A Team of Passionate Interior Designers

 

Homemakers, designers, estimators, photographers, organisers, planners…
Working together to meet your brief.

Caroline Palk

As founder of Ashton House Design, Caroline returned to her West Country roots in the early 90s, having worked for leading interior and fabric designer, Michael Szell.

Simon Bantock

Director

 

Simon is a stickler for detail, making him the consummate interior designer – nothing seemingly escapes his designing eye!

Simon has worked in the interior design industry for 30 years. He relocated to Devon in 1992 where he joined his wife, Caroline Palk, to establish Ashton House Design. Simon now heads up the team, working from stunning showroom premises in Ashburton.

Sarah Walter

Interior Designer

 

The ‘estimate queen’ with an eye for colour, Sarah has been a key member of the team for over ten years.

Following her degree in Textile Design at Winchester School of Art, Sarah worked in London for McKinney & Co. After a year spent in Australia, Sarah ventured to Devon and joined the team at Ashton House Design, where she has continued to broaden her knowledge and hone her design skills.

Kate Venables

Interior Designer

 

After completing her degree in Contemporary Textile Practice at the University of Wales, Kate worked in London for an interior designer and then for the prestigious designer, David Linley. A move back to Devon brought her closer to her family and shortly afterwards she joined the team at Ashton House Design.

Hannah Hember

Interior Designer

 

Hannah is the youngest member of our team, she brings demon technical drawing skills and a youthful approach to our collaborative world of interior design.

She is Devonshire through and through, and like many of the team, lives with a canine companion (and human partner), so weekends are spent enjoying our glorious county.

Sophie Ham

Interior Designer

 

Positive, happy and enthusiastic – three words that describe Sophie! She is a great addition to our youthful and capable team.

Her love of Scandinavian Design puts her right on trend, alongside her current obsession with house plants!

Sophie is a whizz with the drawing packages so is happy presenting immaculately drawn plans and elevations.
