Elaine Skinner

Elaine Skinner established Camellia in 2003 and has grown the practice into a thriving interior design studio with projects all over Cornwall. Originally from Dorset by Sandbanks, Elaine worked in London and Jersey before moving to Cornwall in 1994. A Falmouth University graduate, she holds an MA in design and Camellia is one of the only British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) qualified and accredited practices based in Cornwall.

Elaine and her team specialise in creating beautiful, luxury and contemporary interiors for coastal homes. They are praised for taking the time to fully understand their clients, and creatively designing to meet the particular needs of properties located in coastal areas with a relaxed, laid-back style that comes from living by the sea.

Our Showrooms in Rock and Truro

Camellia has two showrooms in Truro and Rock. Both stock a range of iconic brands including Cole and Sons, Farrow & Ball, GP & J Baker and Zoffany, alongside up and coming new brands like Mark Alexander and Threads. Paint for the Little Greene Paint Company can even be mixed on the spot and customers are invited to have a coffee as they wait.

As well as browsing a range of premium wallpapers, fabrics and paints from its extensive design library, guests can also enjoy tasters from The Eatery, a stylish café, which shares its home with Camellia’s showroom on Fairmantle Street in Truro. The Eatery features an eat-in or take-away menu, which focuses on nutrition, fresh ingredients along with gluten free eating options.
