I’ve recently taken on some design consultations and one client is definitely pushing me out of my zone. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that my natural predisposition is towards clean lines and mid-century furnishings. But my style, is not everyone’s style and at the end of the day it’s about creating a space that my clients’ will enjoy. After an initial two hour meeting to get to know the home owners and have a look around the house and discuss their wishes, I came up with: “Serene London Townhouse” as the style direction for their project.
These are some images that I feel capture that look beautifully and will serve as inspiration for the project. In addition, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel a lot and actually lived in London for a while. There’s definitely a side of London that is hip and cutting edge, but the more traditional style is still very present. It includes a lot of upholstered pieces maybe with some tufting or nail heads, and wall panelling. It’s a layered look exudes a sense of being collected, with family heirloom paintings and old leather books lying around. Find a comfy spot to curl up and read a book, because this look definitely beckons you to cozy up.
