About Us



    Mayfair Interior and Development was born out of a shared love of beautiful interiors, and a passion for creating spaces that people want to exist in. Directors Barbara Chanakira and Sarah Nicollier met in 2015 through Barbara’s property management business and connected immediately, establishing a partnership less than a year later. With their combined skill set and decades of experience, the duo work together to marry extensive knowledge of the high-end property market together with incomparable design.

    The result is exquisite interiors, renovations and refurbishments that transform empty spaces into coveted homes. And this is precisely the Mayfair Interiors and Development difference. With a focus on bespoke customer service, each project is tailored to meet the specific tastes of the client, with all their needs being looked after from end to end – and even beyond. For Barbara and Sarah, customer satisfaction is paramount and they work closely with each client to ensure every minute detail is carefully crafted and considered, so that they’re not only happy, but feel immediately at home.
