Her work has been featured in magazines such as Coast magazine, Country Homes and Interiors, House Beautiful, 25 beautiful homes.
Lucy was an associate designer in one of the most prestigious commercial interior design practices in London for many years, designing high end bars, restaurants, shops and hotels internationally for a range of clients. She managed several small teams, taking each project from concept through to completion, often for the rich and famous! She then founded lucysheeran.com to work on a broad range of projects such as residential developments and refurbishment, graphic design and architectural illustration.
In 2013 Lucy and Lisa founded Bretton Studios, combining their design skills to work on a variety of exciting projects for a range of clients, both residential and commercial. They personally oversee every stage of each project and provide a specially tailored service for each of their clients.
