Established in 2013 by Melissa Hutley and Charlie Humm, Hutley and Humm takes pride in their immersive approach to each project. We work for our clients to manage all aspects of interior design including; liaising with architects, designing bespoke fixtures and fittings, sourcing untapped furniture makers, and hunting down art and antiques from our wide network of contacts.

Our creative process involves designing a home that is classically elegant and filled with character. We consider every aspect and viewpoint of a room, making sure that every angle, nook or corner is carefully designed.

We believe a home should reflect its inhabitants and act as a window into things that they love and places that they’ve visited. We source antiques and commission bespoke designs that work specifically for a space and for the client’s lifestyle. We aren’t afraid to encourage our clients to be brave. We support them, giving them the confidence to have colours and designs in their home that ultimately elevate their day-to-day life.

Melissa studied History of Architecture and Italian at the University of Edinburgh and the University of Bologna, Italy. She then moved to London to undertake her diploma in Interior Design at KLC School of Design. Melissa worked as a senior designer at Helen Green Design and Fiona Barratt Interiors. She lives in Surrey with her husband and three children.

Charlie studied History at the University of Edinburgh before training in Interior Architecture at the Inchbald School of Interior Design. Prior to setting up her own business with Melissa, she was Head of Design at Rose Uniacke and before that, at Helen Green Design. She lives in Barnes with her husband, daughter and dog, Raffia.

Melissa and Charlie met at university in 2002 and after years of friendship opened their studio in 2013.
