This glamorous apartment in west London is a very stylish ode to the Seventies

Designer Caroline Legrand’s apartment in west London takes the cream of Seventies design and remixes it into something deliciously decadent that’s just right for now.

Originally from Belgium, Caroline previously worked in fashion, including being part of the design team for Anya Hindmarch, before moving into interiors five years ago. Her private client list already includes Melissa Odabash and New York facialist to the stars Georgia Louise. After Caroline fitted out Georgia’s coveted Manhattan Atelier, Jennifer Aniston declared its powder room to be ‘the sexiest on earth’.

Caroline’s gallery-like hall announces her love of vintage opulence, but step into the living room and things get serious. Cloud-soft, white-on-gold Milo Baughman armchairs, cascadingtiers of a Lucite chandelier and the hazy sensuality of a Marilyn Minter photograph make for a heady mix.

Caroline freely admits to an ongoing fascination with the sensual designs of the Seventies. As a child of the era - a time of glamour and daring creativity - she finds herself being drawn back to its styles, while also adding her own stamp.

Next door, Hollywood glamour is alive, well and ready to dine out on its past, with Lucite chairs and a brass rams’ heads table laid with gilt-laced foliage. This is where Caroline entertains friends or, equally, hangs out with her teenage sons.

The sleek lines of Caroline’s kitchen cabinets are broken up by a Murano glass chandelier and the swirls of the marble flooring and worktops.
