Octavia Dickinson

Congratulations to Octavia Dickinson (2004 Leaver) who has been included in House & Garden's top 100 designers and architects.

Octavia Dickinson (2004 Leaver) has been included in House & Garden magazine's top 100 designers and architects. 

House & Garden say 'Since setting up her studio in 2015, Octavia Dickinson has developed a talent for the quintessentially English country-house aesthetic. Her training with Cindy Leveson and a stint with Flora Soames have enhanced Olivia’s way with fabrics and colour. This has won her a host of projects, from a manor house in Wiltshire to a lodge on Scotland’s WestCoast. Last autumn, she launched the product design arm of her business, followed by an online antiques shop, through which she sells selected homeware, wallpapers and fabrics.'

“Octavia Dickinson is part of a crop of young designers redefining the English country look. Her beautifully balanced rooms come with a dollop of old-fashioned sensibility, a dash of wit, and a gimlet eye for detail.” – House & Garden
