Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is the UK’s premier celebrity designer and artist. His unique personal approach fuses contemporary minimalism with the glamour of styles gone by, and his enormous popularity has established his status as an arbiter of taste for the British public.
Laurence was born in 1965 in London. In 1986 he graduated with honours from Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts and embarked on a career in design. Initially he worked for a company specialising in industrial flooring and was responsible for many of their best selling designs. If you have ever been to the Royal Albert Hall or Buckingham Palace, or have taken a trip on the London Underground, the chances are that you will have walked on one of his floors! From here Laurence went on to work with a team of interior designers, eventually setting up his own design consultancy which has undertaken an impressive range of multi-million pound refurbishments.
In 1996 the first episode of Laurence’s BBC TV series “Changing Rooms” was broadcast. Its immense success turned a man already well respected and admired in his chosen field into a household name. His latest venture is the launch of a portfolio of stunning artwork inspired by his love of historical art and interior design.
