About Sandra

Up-and-coming on the local scene, Sandra Hinton (née Boitel) is a Zurich based interior designer and European tastemaker.

Her unapologetic passion for beautiful materials and exquisite craftsmanship, as well as her international and multifaceted background, make Sandra a refined designer with a keen eye for all things beautiful. Her design vernacular is one that balances sophistication and edge.

Actually aware of the role design plays in influencing the quality of life of the people occupying a space, she aims to create functional interiors that are timeless yet contemporary. “Being invited into a family’s most intimate quarters is always a great honor.

The responsibility of how design influences the quality of life of a space’s occupants, has always been a great motivator for me to create functional interiors that are not only timeless and beautiful, but also tell their owners’ story. An interior should be informed by the life that is lived in it. In return, that interior should make life easier and more pleasurable” she says.


Studio Hinton is a full-service international interior design firm that primarily focuses on high-end residential projects. Although based in Zürich, Studio Hinton has been involved in interior design projects across the globe from London to Paris and Monaco to Los Angeles.  Each project is unique and our mission is to provide a truly tailored service in order to create a design package that reflects your personal vision, aspiration and individual project requirement.

Our studio can assist in any step of the project, from conceptualization to installation.

Lighting is critical in achieving a luxurious interior. That’s why we pay close attention to:

  • Ceiling plans
  • Decorative layers of lighting

These factors help your space come to life.

5.Full House Renovations:
We liaise with skilled architects and builders for renovations and leave no stone unturned to address your personal needs and requirements.

Our Interior Design Steps

Our steps are outlined as follows:

Step 1: Consultations

Our first step for every project involves understanding your wishes as our customer. At this stage, we’ll discuss your needs, preferences, and scope of the project. What direction would you like to take with your project? How much are you willing to spend on the project? How big of a change do you need?  Together with other experts like architects, we’ll study the financial, creative, and practical feasibility of your concept, and aim to produce the best results for your expectations. We provide both physical and virtual consultation.
  • On-site (Physical) consultation: If your project is local, we’d love to see it in person.
  • Virtual Consultation: As an international interior design company, Studio Hinton provides virtual consultation to clients based outside Zurich.
During the consultation, it’s best to give us a tour that’ll inform us of your project’s scope. You can send us pictures of your space and the current floor plan. We’ll then arrange a video or phone call for an in-depth explanation of your needs.

Step 2: Design Development

In a second step we look at the project from a global perspective. We want to ensure we’re maximizing the project’s potential and are integrating solutions for your needs and developing the design intent. We’ll develop a full design concept showing the recommended interior renovations, including aspects such as color selections, soft furnishings, and materials.

Step 3: Presentation

This stage will allow you to visualize the final results of your project. We create mood boards, technical drawings, and even 3D images if required that will give you a realistic expectation of your design choices. We’ll present things such as color schemes, wallcovering, decorative lighting, draperies, and interior finishes, furniture selections, custom joinery pieces and material choices for your approval.

Step 4: Installation

This is the final step before handing over your renovated home. At this stage, we’ll:
  • Purchase all fixtures, furnishings, and other materials approved during the presentation in step 3.
  • Request delivery for the items and inspect them to ensure they’re as expected.
  • Install all the pieces, furnishings, fixtures, etc
  • Deliver the final work.
Throughout the entire process, we’ll handle the project for you. You will be appraised on each step from design conception to installation, and we make sure the project meets your needs as it moves ahead.
