A Gardener’s Bothy in Gunton Park

Posted on Mon, 9 Sep 2019 by midcenturyjo

Far from the basic shelters built for farm labourers on large estates this bothy was the charming home of interior designer John Tanner. Maximalist and traditional in style the tiny cottage shows that small space living does not need to be pared back and sterile. Beautiful, individual and dramatic.

Beata Heuman making more design magic with lots of colours, textures and patterns as is her signature eclectic style. I will get behind this each and every time.

Rebecca Atwood – Living with Color

Posted on Sun, 1 Sep 2019 by KiM

I received a new book recently that just launched a few days ago and I wanted to share with. I’m soooo excited about it! Rebecca Atwood’s first book, Living with Pattern, was such a fabulous read, and a beautiful coffee table book, and her latest, Living with Color, is a dream and a perfect addition to the first. …textile designer Rebecca Atwood explains how to create a color palette, teaching readers to find what resonates with their personal aesthetic and bring the magic of color into their homes. In her first book, Living with Pattern, Rebecca demystified how to conceptualize and feature pattern in your home designs. Now in Living with Color, she delivers another definitive style guidebook that is both an aspirational design showcase and a highly readable, attainable how-to. Rebecca starts with the basics, such as complementary colors, the color wheel, and choosing your personal palette, then explains how to pair groups of colors room by room, showing all aspects of color design from walls to throw pillows. The book is filled with stunning photography of real homes around the country that beautifully display color in layers, patterns, and use. This book is eye candy from start to finish with photos by Sharon Radisch and honestly, had I not been sent a review copy I would have ordered one immediately. I highly advise you treat yourselves and order a copy (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Target) 🙂

A colourful East London warehouse conversion

I love seeing how designers live. Case in point, the converted East London warehouse of Rachel Chudley. Her creativity and love of textures, colours and patterns in completely random pairings makes her home an absolutely feast for the eyes. (Photos: Paul Massey)

A spicy pied à terre

Posted on Tue, 27 Aug 2019 by KiM

There are a few designers out there that never cease to amaze me with every single project they get their hands on. London designer Beata Heuman is at the top of the list. Her quirky, eclectic, completely unpredictable style that marries some of the most random colours and patterns together means you will have never seen this anywhere else and you will never see it duplicated. Though I want to pluck every space from her portfolio and stick it in my home. This Paddington pied à terre is a prime example.
