Celia Sawyer

Business Woman, Interior Designer, Philanthropist, Mentor, TV Personality with Channel 4's Four Rooms & BBC One's Your Home in Their Hands

Celia Sawyer is the Founder of exclusive Knightsbridge interior design company Celia Sawyer Luxury Interiors, which boasts a portfolio across the globe. As a dealer both on and off the big screen, Celia collects art and collectables and has an extensive client base for which she sources rare and beautiful objects, buying and selling for world renowned sporting personalities, celebrities and entrepreneurs, to some of the most influential development companies in the world.

Further to her successful interior design business, Celia Sawyer first appeared on our screens as one of the best known stars of Channel 4’s prime-time series 'Four Rooms'. It was this programme, now in its fifth series, which propelled Celia into the limelight and television arena. As one of the all-star dealers on Four Rooms Celia bids and negotiates for the best possible price for the treasures on offer. It is her straight-talking, feisty manner and impeccable style that has helped Celia to become the go-to expert on this cult television show, which won a prestigious Royal Television Society in 2014 and ‘Best Business Programme 2014’ in the Reality Awards. Following on from the success of Four Rooms, Celia was selected by the BBC to host a new factual prime-time, entertainment show for BBC one, titled Your Home in Their Hands, which debuted in September 2014. This programme sees amateur designers take over people’s homes across the UK for a make-over, often with a twist. The show has received in excess of three million viewers a week and will continue to build in audience and notoriety over the coming months.

Away from the world of business Celia is a mother of two who enjoys family life and keeping fit – something incredibly important to Celia. Charity also plays a significant role in Celia’s life being an Ambassador for the Prince’s Trust and the British Heart Foundation where she is a committee member for the charity’s prestigious Tunnel of Love event. Furthermore, Celia supports Help for Heroes, Dorset Air Ambulance, Variety Leonard Cheshire Disability, Well Child, Make a Wish, RNLI Life Boats, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, Women’s Refuge and Football for Peace, to which she is an official Board Advisor.

To recognise her business acumen and charity work Celia won the Inspiration Award for Women in 2013 and is regularly in mainstream press with exclusive columns for the Mail Online and Hello! Celia was also announced as an official judge for the International Property Awards this year.
Why Interior Design Is A Serious

Why Interior Design Is A Serious Business!

Very often I find myself having to define the title of an Interior designer. Mixed messages appear in many forms and it is a career that many underestimate and clearly don't understand.

Why I'm Over the 'Scandi' Look

Scandi style is limited to only being great if you want a quick Ikea fix for a student flat or a lower budget rental apartment, but this way of designing in real terms reflects no creativity, comfort or drama at all.

Designing Your Home Like Your

Designing Your Home Like Your Wardrobe

Time and time again I meet clients who haven't got a clue on how to furnish their homes or make them look aesthetically pleasing to the eye. You don't need a three year course in interior design to get this right, you actually just need to use a bit of knowledge and a lot of common sense.
