“It is about the fine balance between the simplicity of the forms, the carefully selected natural materials and textures, the respect of the context and unparalleled dedication to quality.”

A peaceful oasis with light-filled interiors on the top floor of a white stuccoed Victorian building not far from Kensington Palace. The neutral palette and attention to natural materials such as American oak, travertine and linen are sophisticated and chic. Kensington Apartment by London-based Onda Interiors.

OK. OK. I may have changed my mind. Not about the skill of London-based interior designers Forbes Rix but about what cottage of theirs I want. The conservatory/kitchen in this house is just what we all need in these times of social distancing. Who needs to go out?

“We are passionate about creating unique, individual, timeless homes where warmth and functionality are paramount. We love colour combined with texture and natural materials, creating stylish, eclectic, comfortable homes where treasured possessions still have their place alongside the contemporary.”

If cottagecore is all the rage for 2021 then I’d like this cottage by Forbes Rix. A fabulous celebration of colour. Contemporary and light-filled. Traditional and eclectic.

A fabulous English family home

Colour doesn’t have to scream at you “Look at me. Look at me.” Colour can surround you quietly, uplift you, calm you, delight you. This lovely Georgian house in Lewes, East Sussex by Cave Interiors is just such a place. Fabulous family fun.

With so many oh so stylish apartments out there drowning in a sea of beige or is that off-white or white on white on white it’s refreshing to see an apartment with rich pops of colour. Deepest malachite green to washes of blue to textured grey. Upper East Side Apartment by Samuel Amoia.
