A dark boutique-style retreat in North London

I am so grateful Sue Miller of Mad Cow Interiors contacted me because I am absolutely in love with her dark, eclectic style. Sue is a colour, pattern and texture enthusiast (her home was featured in Abigail Ahern's book Colour) and this is very evident in this North London boutique retreat project. I don't typically lead off a post with a bedroom but in this case it is the icing on the cake. The path was cleared for Mad Cow to collaborate with a specialist to relocate & redesign the kitchen. We added bathrooms you’d want to melt into and created storage solutions without compromising the flow of space. The sunken living room was extended and dug out to create drama out of those awkward Victorian half landings and in keeping with our signature style, every room featured different floor finishes and striking wall treatments. We designed & decorated reclaimed barn wood into bed headboards and had the furniture custom made specifically. On top of all this, we layered curated art & vintage finds selected from various travels and we used photographic prints framed from our own collection of work. The finished result has all the luxury of a boutique hotel but with a characterful homely touch. With its crisp Egyptian Cotton bed linens and towels, its complete range of dinner service, crockery and utilities. Every inch of this home is to die for!! I love it Sue!!!

Lots of bold art work and wall colour choices make this eclectic home an absolute treasure.

Bold patterns and colours 

Making a bold statement in this gorgeous home in Paddington, Queensland designed by Claire Stevens. Opening the kitchen and living areas to the panoramic city view and recently landscaped garden, as well as reconfiguring circulation paths, increasing room size and maximising storage, were all significant aspects of transforming this recently built reproduction country cottage into an open plan home for a young family. Bespoke joinery is punctuated with a graphic black and white materials palette with walnut, brass and leather detailing adding a subtle sophistication to each space. The client’s eclectic style and affinity for colour and pattern is reflected in the wall and window coverings, light fittings, artwork and furnishings. The result is a home that is a playful juxtaposition between modern and traditional, colour and monochromatic, bold graphic patterns and delicate floral designs. Photos: Toby Scott.

Flatiron Loft

At first I was drawn by the large windows. Then I realised they had be picked out in black paint to contrast with the grey walls only to have it dawn on me that it was grey plaster beautifully polished on those walls. Momentarily distracted by the black chandelier hanging from the ceiling my gaze settled on the wood floors. Speaking of floors did you see the floor tiles? Tiles? OMG the powder room and that kitchen and the archway with the cat. Stop it! That bathroom is outrageous. Flatiron loft by Frances Mildred.
