HOUSE OF THE MONTH
Once a rented house completely stripped of its detailing, today this Victorian terrace has character in spades. The playful yet dramatic home now exudes an old-school gentleman’s club meets Seventies playboy vibe, with a dash of eccentricity and rock and roll for good measure. Get ready for an explosion of rich colour, a vibrant mix of tactile materials, and lashings of luxe.
THE NEW MONOCHROME
Black and white doesn’t need to look basic. The latest way to work the trend is piling high on pattern. So think polka dots, chevron, stripes…all at once.
