A colourful family home in London

Posted on Mon, 20 Mar 2023 by KiM

Inspired by the joyful and eclectic atmosphere of the home in the ‘Paddington’ films we created a vibrant, pattern filled home for design lovers, with an emphasis on practical solutions for family life and interesting design details throughout.
This could not be more perfect for a family with young kids. The colours are so fresh and incredibly fun and have such a wonderful energy. Immediately brings a smile to my face. Also how can you not love a yellow kitchen? Designed by James Arkoulis and Saskia Howard of Howark Design (***update: and as per the comments, also designed by Robert Atherton Design)

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Melis Goral, Istanbul by SANAYI313.

Quintessentially English

“We wanted the interiors to be cosy and eclectic and to be sympathetic to the age of the cottage. We mixed old with new and sourced a lot of the antiques in auctions from around the UK. The cottage is a little jewel box, with each room a different colour scheme full of patterns and layers. The cottage is quirky with uneven old cob walls and sloping ancient flagstone floors and we wanted the interiors to be in harmony with this.”

Quintessentially English with its pattern mix and match, embrace of colour and antique pieces and although this home is a 17th Century cottage in Devon the designer Elizabeth Hay is actually Singapore based.

Texture and light

Lisa Buxton of the eponymous Lisa Buxton Interiors believes less is more, and that design should possess a point of view, without being fussy. The restrained colour palette of this Elwood, Melbourne home is enhanced by layers of natural textures and the glorious light pouring in through bespoke windows.
