Designer Veere Grenney Brings Beauty to Life

Veere Grenney could fairly be said to be a leading ‘decorators’ decorator’. Creating timelessly elegant interiors for more than 30 years, the New Zealand-born, London-based Grenney is one of the pre-eminent talents in English interior design, Kerryn Harper-Cuss writes for Homes & Gardens magazine.

The interiors of his country retreat ‘The Temple’ have rightly been recognised in the book Interiors: The Greatest Rooms of the Century, Harper-Cuss writes.

Thirty years into his career, Grenney shows no sign of slowing. He and his team of eight are currently working on interior design projects in London, the Midwest and the Hamptons, including a significant new build.

“I can’t draw, I can’t use a computer, but I am good at being the conductor. A very good interior designer is like an editor; you have the ability to visualise the whole, to recognise the potential in the ingredients, to recognise the quality of a maker and to bring this altogether,” Grenney explains.
