As a writer and interior designer, I have seen time and again how our success, health and happiness are profoundly affected by the spaces that we live and work in. I focus on helping my readers and clients create living and working environments to transform their lives on all levels. 


The Paula Robinson Design Group has been operating internationally since 1991 with residential and commercial clients that include: Sir Richard Branson and Virgin; Perpetual; Inlumen; Workstation Solutions; Kuwait Danish Dairy Company; Gallerie Radjabi; Guru Restaurants; Kennebunkport Historical Society, amongst many others.  


I wrote two very popular weekly columns: “The Project” for The Sunday Times and “The Room Planner” for The Sunday Telegraph. Both columns generated lively reader response and a loyal following. I also wrote the monthly “Design Masterclass” for Move Or Improve magazine and contributed articles on interior design and home-improvement to many publications over the years. 


Ebury Publishing (a division of Penguin Random House) commissioned me to write a book about space reconfiguration. The Room Planner: 100 Practical Plans For Your Home was published in 2005 and was also translated into French and Russian. I have just finished my first novel, A Place of Shadows, and am editing my second, Remembering Tomorrow.  

I was born in Montreal to British parents, grew up in Los Angeles, New York and London, was educated at the Lycée Français and speak fluent French, passable Italian and rusty Russian. I read Psychology at London University and have been lucky enough to also live in Australia, France, Singapore and South Africa. I currently divide my time between the US and UK.
