Ex-student and mum transforming interiors
A former Bath student has returned to the city to help spruce up its interiors.
Maximilian Buston may not seem your traditional interior designer: with a doctorate in archaeology people could be forgiven for thinking Indiana Jones rather than Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.
However, the 24-year-old who attended Prior Park College became so passionate about artefacts and objects while studying for his Doctorate in Aegean Archaeology at Oxford University that he has launched a new high end interior design firm Distinctive Interiors – Detailed Designs.
He said: "When you are doing interior design it's a different practice to archaeology but it's still in the arts. Interior design is related to the Aegean world because it's all about appreciating objects."

He added that growing up surrounded by his mother's own interior design and restoration firm had a profound effect on his own career choices.
He said: "I grew up with these fine fabrics and furnishings which was great and some of those traditional designs in the 1980s and 1990s they are still very popular but they are much more expensive."
Distinctive Interiors brings mother, Ursula Buston, 61, and son together for the first time.
The pair hope to make the most of Bath's flare for creativity and capture people's desire to stand out from the crowd.
He said: "We don't have a shop and when we have a client we are very devoted to their needs. We go into their house, get to know their house very well, what the rooms are used for and what the moods of the rooms are."
