Tim Murray joins Helen Green Design

March 16, 2018

(UK) – Tim Murray confirmed as new Creative Director of Helen Green Design Studio.

Bringing nearly 20 years’ experience of working in some of the UK’s most illustrious interior design houses, Murray joins the 20 strong team at Helen Green Design Studio’s Knightsbridge residence where he will spearhead the future creative direction and development of the company.

He joins from his role as Head of Interior Design at Linley, where he has spent the past two years overseeing a range of projects. Prior to this, he was Creative Director at Katharine Pooley, following a decade at Candy & Candy where he left as Design Director.

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 his architecture degree study at the University of Manchester that he developed his signature style, which defines the very tenets of contemporary British design and craftsmanship.

With this developed sense of refined aesthetics, he went on to work at STB Design, the Anglo-American interior design firm. There he became adept at working across a broad range of sector briefs and where he laid the foundations for understanding the importance of client relationships.

The transition to Candy & Candy, when the company was in its infancy, saw him spend a decade working at one of the industry’s most avant-garde design and development businesses of its time. There 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.

At Linley Murray focussed on the craftsmanship of British furniture making and interior design. During his time he worked on a wide range of projects – from commercial to residential and from traditional to contemporary.

For Murray, 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. He 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.”
