Based in London (UK) and Atlanta (US), Summer Williams Design offers 

hospitality and residential interior design services to clients near and far.   

Our design ethos is centered around a philosophy that interior spaces should be as beautiful as they are functional.  We work closely with our clients to understand the distinct characteristics that make one project unique to the next, and build bespoke designs from the foundation of those nuances.  From the efficiency of the layout, to the emotive role of interior lighting, and all the way through to the placement of meaningful art/objects, we have become best known for the way in which we thread together the architectural elements with the decorative.  We strive for artisan quality in both product and process and create interiors that are specifically tailored to the people who inhabit them .

Summer Williams, Principal / Owner

After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts at The University of Georgia, Summer started her career in Atlanta where her particular interest in Restaurant Design was cultivated during a six-year tenure at The Johnson Studio.  Having obtained the National Council of Interior Design Qualification in 2003, Summer remained focused within the Food & Beverage sector whereby four of her projects received national acclaim as Esquire Magazine's 'Best New Restaurants in the USA.'  In 2007, Summer jumped at the opportunity to work abroad where she quickly rose to the position of Associate in the London office of Hirsch Bedner Associates.  Her love of travel and culture were expressed through projects spanning the globe in destinations including Beirut, Gstaad, Oslo, Milan, Istanbul, Amsterdam, Dubrovnik, and beyond.  Summer’s personal and creative growth were recognized through several award winning projects; one receiving the ‘Best Overall Winner’ in the Society of British Interior Designer’s International Design Awards in Paris, 2011.  Shortly thereafter, Summer fulfilled a lifelong dream of owning her own firm when she opened Summer Williams Design in 2012 in London, UK; and subsequently in Atlanta, GA in 2016.  Summer has over 20 years of professional interior design experience.
