About our studio
Established in 2013, Black and Milk is a high-end interior design studio with more than 40 completed projects. It's the brainchild of husband and wife team Olga and Toly Alekseev.
Olga brings more than 15 years of experience in the design industry to her role as Creative Director. She works closely with each client to create interiors that are unique, original and which truly reflect the client's personality.
Toly oversees the operational side of the design process. With a background of 12 years in operations consulting and project management, he makes sure every project is meticulously planned and delivered on time and within budget.

" ... B&M have been just exceptional. They are always professional but also very personable and it has been an absolute pleasure to work with them.
Olga is the brain behind the design and Toly makes it all happen.
Olga has the most amazing taste. She always brought brilliant ideas to the table and was very patience with us all throughout the creative process. We trusted her 100% and were incredibly impressed with the quality and uniqueness of the pieces that she suggested for us.
Toly is very thorough and has made this a stress-free experience for us, which is quite an achievement! He dealt with all the suppliers and overcame all logistics and last-minute challenges. He is impossibly resilient and thanks to his hard work and perseverance we have just the home that we wanted.
All in all, we could not be happier with the end result. We can highly recommend Black & Milk. "

Fulham Apartment, W6

" I hired Black & Milk because I knew their speciality was designing for new build flats - in this case a 1,300 square foot white box in Hammersmith. What I loved about working with them wasn't just their passion and vision, but that they really embraced how I wanted to use the space and what would work best for my family.
Olga and Toly work directly with furniture makers so many of the pieces in this project are custom, designed specifically for the smaller proportions of city living. We were not easy clients. But I couldn't be more pleased with the result and I'm so grateful to have gotten a chance to work with them. "

" Toly and Olga are simply great! On the creative side, Olga has been invaluable in helping us design and come up with a look and feel for our new apartment. Her eye for detail, scale and proportion is also impeccable. In fact, my wife and I would go so far as to say she is more demanding on getting things right for our apartment than we are! She would also suggest ideas and products that we otherwise would never have considered which was great and paid huge dividends to the final look of our apartment!
Toly, on the other hand, micro-managed the entire implementation of our project efficiently and always with complete transparency – he basically handled all the nitty gritty details that we all dread (especially given that we are based overseas) and followed the project through in terms of timing and budgeting. In a nutshell, he made the project painless and worry-free for us. We couldn't be happier with Black & Milk! Always professional but always friendly and approachable! "
