ABOUT SAMANTHA KNIGHT
The British Decorative International founder Samantha Knight has always had a burning desire to contribute to people’s wellbeing. The studied interior designer and creative director worked for 10 years as a luxury design PR for brands such as Lalique. Whilst she was representing Lalique at a PR agency, a friend asked her to design his apartment in London. He loved it and Samantha’s earnings allowed her to leave the world of PR and study for her professional qualification in interior design. From here, she trained at a leading property development firm in London. She has worked on the refurbishment of iconic buildings across the city before starting her own interior design and lifestyle business The Decorative International with a colleague. Samantha has been working for over 6 years as a interior designer now.
The life of a designer is varied, exciting, creative and hard work.
PASSION FOR INTERIOR DESIGN & LIFESTYLE
The satisfaction of delivering a lifestyle for her clients in their home is what Samantha loves most about her job. The environment is so closely linked to one’s wellbeing. It gives the interior designer great satisfaction to improve the day to day life of her clients with clever design and practical solutions. The attention to detail and the craftsmanship are what fascinate Samantha most about interior design.

The Decorative International employs a multi-national team, that offers its clients amazing design as well as complementary lifestyle services.

I would like to open Mallorca to British design and create a lifestyle for my clients on the island;
not only by delivering a well curated home, but also being influential in the way they enjoy the island. Samantha Knight
