Skela Studio is an interior design company based in Edinburgh. Our speciality is retail interior design and shoplifting, helping clients make the best of their retail space. Taking pride in being passionate about the success of our local businesses across Scotland.
It is tough competing with the big retailers but we believe that the independent retailers have so much more to offer. We often work together with brand specialists and marketers to have a better brand presence online and in the shops. Custom design and shop-fitting can be quite challenging but also really rewarding to see we had an impact on another business success.
We offer a range of commercial interior design services in Edinburgh and rest of Scotland. Starting from a SWAT analysis of your shop, cafe, bar or restaurant and feedback on improvements to complete fit-out of your commercial interior as well as art direction.

The founder Aleksandra J. Hannah is an Interior Designer based in Scotland. With her background in Retail styling and Visual merchandising, she excelled in designing beautiful and eye-catching displays. While working for large retailers she noticed there is a gap in the market for specialist interior design focusing on independent retailers. She retrained as an Interior designer and set up Skela Studio in order to work with businesses that want to make the best commercial use of their interiors. Now her designs include different types of spaces: apartments, shops, boutique hotels, cafes, offices etc.
In addition to her design work, she regularly holds interior design workshops and talks for The City of Edinburgh Council, Heriot-Watt University and internationally for companies like Google & Accenture.
The most important thing for her when designing a room is to give the place a soul, style and a good atmosphere. Aleksandra likes to stay informed but is not driven by trends. Her eye for colours, textures and lighting is what sets her apart from other designers. She endeavours to create true living places: fluent, comfortable and timeless, places where people feel good. Inspiration comes from everywhere: nature, music, travel, art, colours and shapes she sees every day.
