About us

Tristram Design was formed in 2014, by Interior Design professional, Alyson Jackson-Petts who had previously owned and run two interiors retail shops in central London.   As well as providing interior designer services, Alyson also worked at a building contractor, property developer and interior architecture specialist, offering a full service design and build.


Tristram Design offers a full interior design and home styling service for our clients and includes:

  • Complete home and property interior design we can work in collaboration with your architect, contractor and surveyor.
  • Interior design services and consultation.
  • Colour scheme design.
  • Full home or individual room styling.
  • De-cluttering.
  • Shopping advice on interiors and furnishings.
  • Sourcing of furniture at discounted prices.
  • Show Home styling and staging for property developers - residential properties either for sale or for letting.
  • Airbnb property styling and consultation



 As we are based in Central London, our clients are mainly in and around London, although we are very happy to work anywhere the UK and abroad.  

Our client list includes members of the Kuwaiti royal family; London boutique hotel owners;   Estate Agents, including Hamptons International.

Alyson has designed properties for celebrities such as, Olympic rower Matthew Pincent and actress Lindsay Lohan.

Our History:

Tristram Design  started life as Mish-Mash Traders Ltd, with a London interiors retail store, in 2002.    Our shop had a very unique look, full of lifestyle products, furnishings and object d'art. 

Our ethos was to source from talented artisan craftsmen from around the world and UK.

Our customers loved our style and products so much that many asked us to help them design their homes. This started our Interior Design Service.  

We soon found ourselves being asked to style London Boutique Hotels and provide show home styling for property developers and landlords.

 Within 2 years we were also offering building works for our clients along with our interior design.  
For 10 years we were a full service design and build company but with a retail arm, giving a high street presence.  


Very recently, we closed the stores, but now operate our high street sales out of our lage warehouse facility in South London, where we offer furniture and accessory sales.
Our new name, Tristram Design, we feel is more in keeping with our current service to our customers.   We hope you like the name.

Owner & Director - Alyson Jackson-Petts

I began my huge interest in interiors when totally redesigning my mother’s home in my teens. I also learned how to build walls, mix cement, and lay bricks from the age of 15. 

Later in my 20’s, while working as an air hostess I married and had the task of totally refurbishing our new cottage in the Cotswolds.  In my late 20's I was lucky enough to work for Smallbone of Devises, where I was trained in room design and planning.  By the age of 35, I had redesigned and refurbished 5 of my own properties while working full time. 

Our Design Architect – Frankie

Frankie trained in Interior Architecture at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand. She has been working with us in London now for around 4 years and is very experienced in designing and optimising interior space for both style and functionality. Also with a great eye for detail, she can visualise our ideas with her fantastic sketches and draw the final designs in CAD. You will be amazed at what is possible in the space that you have!
