I'm Angela, daughter of a florist and an athlete, sometime national competitive swimmer, cellist and ex-data analyst. I’m a Kiwi by birth, but I lived in Italy before settling on the edge of leafy Tooting Common, London. I'm a fan of beauty in all its forms, kind people, oysters and champagne.
My first interior design gig was at 14, when I glued sheepskin scraps to my bedroom carpet making a luxurious flooring that survived in the house until it was sold.
Since then I've mentally repainted and restyled every room I've walked into.
When the corporate world set me free a few years ago, I set up Angela Bunt Creative to finally start doing what I do best — helping people transform their homes with colour.
I call myself an interior designer but what I really do is inspire people to understand what makes them tick and to reflect it in their surroundings. I can:
- Coordinate a design scheme that lets you feel truly special in your own home
- Source unique accessories, furniture and fittings to suit your style
- Manage design, renovation and restyling projects to completion
- Create a confident working relationship for success.
I sometimes say I was put on Earth to decorate it not fix it. If fixing's what you're into, a beautiful home is the perfect place to start.
I write regularly about interiors, food and floral styling for my Flair Fairy blog. I've also written for Real Homes magazine. I'd love to contribute to your interiors publication or website or speak on colour choice in the home at your event. I offer personal home colour consultations, colour and flower styling workshops, as well as full interior decorating and home styling services by the hour.

Colour Workshop “Angela’s warm and friendly approach made us all feel immediately relaxed. The colour course was very informative and Angela managed to get our creative juices flowing! I’m so pleased with the two room schemes I took away. Angela has helped me understand how best to use a wide range of colours in the home from the fashionable cool greys to the deep dark blues and greens that are in every magazine at the moment. Now I love colour! Thank you Angela.” Fiona, SW17
“I so enjoyed the colour workshop this morning. Angela was brilliant, she took one out of ones’s comfort zone, and having other people to discuss one’s colour schemes with made it all the more enjoyable. I highly recommend it if you have a whole house to do or just one room. “
Julia, London SW17
“Your warmth, hospitality and knowledge made the Colour Workshop so enjoyable and inspiring, and it was great to take away my room schemes with samples as a reminder, in addition to your trade secrets and advice! And thanks for being so open with your beautiful home - it was really lovely to be able to wander round and see such great use of colour in action; it's really made me think how my walls are stuck in a groove! I must confess when I got home my flat looked so pale and cold in comparison! “
Alex, London SW12
“I am inspired to brighten up our home with more flowers around the house. Angela taught us to gather foliage, herbs and flowers from the garden and mix it with bought flowers to make lovely arrangements.”
“Angela’s ‘Power of Colour’ course was a real treat. It combines theory and experience with practical in-depth discussion based on swatch-based colour/fabric/wallpaper schemes designed by each person in the group. Angela gently challenges your concepts and pushes you to really think about achieving something that is interesting and right for your space. The real gem is actually being in Angela’s inspiring home which is even more fantastic in real life than in the photos. Lovely surroundings and an encouraging atmosphere with tea, coffee and delicious snacks. It’s a lovely way to spend a few hours and start interior planning with confidence.”
Katie, London NW6
“I had a great day painting with Angela, I had always wanted to try my hand at furniture painting as I had some old pieces that needed revamping but never had the confidence to take the plunge! Angela showed us some great techniques and suggested colours that I would never had thought of. I am so pleased with the mirror and stool that we painted for my little girl’s bedroom and it’s the opposite colour that I would have chosen myself. To my complete surprise, I love it! The whole experience was so relaxed and Angela made it really good fun. Her beautiful home was such a perfect setting. Since doing the course I have painted another 2 mirrors and a dressing table, I have got the painting bug!”
Laura, London SW12
“I'm mad about colour and fabrics and was in total heaven at Angela's Power of Colour workshop. I gained so much knowledge in what colours to put where in my home. It was a super fun day and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I came away with lots of swatches and samples and raring to go with my project.”
"Your course on flower styling was not only very enjoyable but also made me think outside the box when it comes to choosing receptacles and dealing with a variety of flowers. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and for the warm welcome. I would recommend the course to anyone who wants to learn/enhance their confidence dealing with flowers."
“Angela was a great help throughout the process of redecorating my home. From a simple brief of ‘sophisticated homeliness’ she was able to help me with colour schemes and in suggesting and sourcing individual items of furniture to fit my rooms and preferred style, all done with a smile and a good splash of humour.”
Martin, London SW12
"We sought Angela’s help initially with paint colours for our flat, but Angela ended up helping us with everything from paints, carpets, wallpapers, blinds to finding a good decorator. We really couldn’t have done without Angela and her excellent (and money saving) suggestions!”
