Tim Murray has joined Helen Green Design as our new Creative Director, bringing nearly twenty years’ experience of working in some of the UK’s most illustrious interior design houses – from LINLEY to Katharine Pooley, and Candy & Candy.
Tim joins the 20 strong team at our Knightsbridge design studios where he will spearhead the future creative direction and development of Helen Green Design.
British-born Murray grew up in Surrey and his love of design came from his fashion journalist mother and interior designer father. He was inspired to embark on a career in design and his passion grew as a student of architecture. It was during Tim’s architecture degree study at the University of Manchester – a city rich in architectural heritage and with vibrant, contemporary design scene – that he developed his signature style, which defines the very tenets of contemporary British design and craftsmanship.
At LINLEY Tim focussed on the craftsmanship of British furniture making and interior design. During his two years at the company, he worked on a wide range of projects – from commercial to residential and from traditional to contemporary. Prior to this, he was Creative Director at Katharine Pooley and spent a decade at Candy & Candy as Design Director.
At Candy & Candy he was responsible for crafting a new design language in the era of high-end luxury residential and super-yacht interiors, setting the benchmark for the super-prime market. He was instrumental in its formation and growth from a small company to a globally recognised property development brand. Above all, he honed his understanding of the intricate requirements of every client.
For Tim, this new role offers the opportunity to ensure Helen Green Design continuously evolves on a creative level – whilst also remaining artistically flexible to meet client needs. Tim emphasises that;
“Luxury is most importantly about meeting a client’s aspiration. Understanding and finding solutions to fit their needs and lifestyle. To achieve this, there can be ‘no boundaries, no compromise’ and an impeccable level of service is a must.”
