Bright yellow walls, grahic patterned curtains and stripes add some pretty bold and playful touches to this other wise fairly traditional home in California. Julie Goldman of J.Latter Design took things up a notch. Several notches really.

Welcome to Dennis Severs’ house

Posted on Tue, 6 Feb 2018 by KiM

Jo featured this home quite some time ago but as it is one of the most magical homes I have ever seen I wanted to share it again, with more breathtaking photos. Welcome to Dennis Severs’ house.

Dennis Severs’ House at 18 Folgate Street, Spitalfields is more than just a time capsule. It is both a breathtaking and an intimate portrait of the lives of a family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the 20th Century. As you follow their fortunes through the generations, the sights, smells and sounds of the house take you into their lives. It was Dennis Severs’ intention that as you enter his house it is as if you have passed through the surface of a painting, exploring with your senses and imagination a meticulously crafted 18th Century world.

Simplicity

“There is nothing simple about simplicity. Simplicity is complexity.”

The composition, the texture, the monochromatic palette, the considered choice of pattern, the restraint and careful curation. How deceptively simple and achingly beautiful. Buckhead by Atlanta-based Nancy Braithwaite Interiors.
