Subtle changes powerful impact

Posted on Fri, 15 Oct 2010 by midcenturyjo

You’ve seen this house before in magazines, product shoots and here on Desire to Inspire. It’s location78, the East London photographic location house of photographer Graham Atkins-Hughes and stylist Jo Atkins-Hughes. Their design, their styling, their business. Look more closely and you’ll see them, the subtle changes that have taken this house to the next level. A few well chosen pieces of furniture and new accessories, touches of new colour (including a black living room), warm timber tones have added a life and a warmth to an already amazing house. To cap it all are these fabulous new photos by Graham. A new look at old favourites, a peek at spaces we haven’t seen before and an exuberant garden that is the perfect foil for the moody maturity of the interiors. I couldn’t make up my mind which photos to leave in or out. I’m guilty, I’m afraid Graham, of using almost all of them. Available for location hire… maybe I could hire it permanently and move on in.

P.S. Launching soon an online shop at their website and they have started a blog. I’m sure they’ll let us know when they have all the content ready.

It's a bit Mad Men-love how the colors seem to glow against the grays!

What is the color of that gorgeous grey? I would love this for my bedroom! Teleport me there, please!

No, I've looked and I've looked and think that this is a work of design billiance. A beautiful collection of furnishings highlighted against a satin grey backdrop. Also check out the subtle use of texture throughout, makes my want to touch all I see. Honestly the ONLY thing I want to get rid of is that ghastly glass lamp with the bobble fringe…no excuse for that amongst this collection. love love love it. (I'm so over white anyway, so I AM biased, lol)

The black is so dramatic. It really makes the furniture pop. I love it.
