When colour brings life to a home that was in need of someone’s special touch. In 2018, Blyth-Collinson Interiors was engaged by a London couple to update a Capability Brown designed house in Oxfordshire which had recently been unoccupied and sadly, somewhat neglected. Saskia and her team provided a much needed boost of energy to the tired interiors; enlivening each room with colour and warmth to show-case the clients’ eclectic antique and art collections, which reflect their unique interests and their international lives and travels. Specialist paint techniques were employed so that every room tells a distinctive story. Sumptuous soft furnishings combine with wonderful carpets, art, beautifully bound books and sculpture to invigorate this lovely home with flair and a certain sophisticated, bohemian aesthetic.

Maximalism with colour and pattern

Posted on Wed, 24 Mar 2021 by KiM

WOW there is alot going on in this home and I REALLY love it. Zoë Feldman Design took a very unique approach with the choices of colours and patterns throughout the home and the result is alot of fun and fabulously eclectic. Also, if you ever doubted the power of high gloss paint….
Color, pattern, & texture fill this eclectic Spring Valley home. Our client’s, fans of all things British, fashion, and believers in the “more is more” adage, quickly challenged us to find our inner maximalists. However, the real task was to create cohesion in such a layered and whimsical space. Our goal was to show enough restraint, without sacrificing any interest, to curate a natural relationship between the spaces. We utilized patterns and colors that one may not typically view as neutral to create a sense of layered complexity. In the entry, the leopard print stair runner serves as an organic neutral that enhances the effect of the floral patterned wallcovering. Throughout the home, small scale pattern serves as a complimentary juxtaposition to larger scale prints in a way that a solid would never be able to achieve. The kitchen serves as relief, a sort of palette cleanser, by using tonality over prints. The entire space is a study in balance leaving one to question everything they ever thought was true about neutral.

I love an English interior. A little bit traditional, not afraid of pattern clash, surprisingly lots of colour and always that touch of quirkiness. What’s that you say? English interiors are all magnolia paint, naff wallpaper and overstuffed pleather sofas? Not this fabulous interior by Rosanna Bossom. That’s my inspiration!

The Love Shack

It’s a bright and colourful take on the beach shack without the cliches. Comfortable, uncluttered, and beautiful. Think small footprint with everything for the two of you to live large. After all, it’s the Love Shack by New York and Sarasota based Ellen Hanson Designs.
