Butterflies in Kensington

LIVING ROOM

Below a magnificent, gilded Japanese screen, I added the cushions to my client's old brown suede sofa, and she brought my X-frame ottoman and Thar chairs in David Hicks Fiorentina from her old house. In the window, a folding screen painted by me in a dazzle camouflage design hides the radiator.

LIVING ROOM

I designed the red lacquer-topped, ebonised oak table for my client's old house.

LIVING ROOM

A detail of the corner of the banquette with a cushion edged in my favourite cut ruche fringe, and a very light blind in my Melograno print in turquoise. On the table, part of an old Chinese screen and a silver-mounted ostrich egg.

LIVING ROOM

To the light, airy living room of this apartment, watched over by an old stone Ganesh, I added a corner banquette around my octagonal dining table, with cushions in a deep purple and turquoise, colours taken from the sari in the Claudio Bravo portrait, which I framed in vellum.

LIVING ROOM

In one corner of this light-filled room was a high and awkwardly shaped window, which we covered with a TV cabinet in limed oak, the mirrored top framing a square niche backed with opal perspex, lit by daylight from the window. 

BEDROOM WARDROBES

Faced with an ugly wall of existing wardrobes, instead of changing them at great expense, I mounted these parchment-framed botanical drawings on the doors, with my Leaf handles in white enamel, scattered as though tumbling in a breeze.

HALLWAY

To the narrow, dark hallway I added a wall of mirror that doubles my new half-arch to make this a wide, vaulted space with an internal window at the end. We painted it a rich tobacco brown to emphasise the new architecture.

LIVING ROOM TV UNIT

A detail of my TV unit with nailed decoration and a pair of my cast bronze Ring handles set against the grain of the limed oak.

KITCHEN

The first thing you see entering this small apartment is the kitchen at the end of the corridor. I made it so dark that it disappears, with seaweed green walls, black oak cabinets with my nickel handles and a blind in my Turkish Flower print in aubergine.

BED

A detail of the bed, its creamy linen trimmed in brown grosgrain, and my Crescent bedside table with cream-lacquered tops and terracotta steel legs.

BEDROOM

I made this elegant half-tester bed as a frame for two beautiful Japanese screens painted with dancing butterflies, 'floating' against the curtain on hidden steel brackets. The linen chest is covered in my blue Pavimento print.

BATHROOM BLIND

For the window of the Eau-de-Nil and black master bathroom, I had this roller blind printed with details of the butterflies from the Japanese screens in the bedroom.

CHILD'S ROOM

The internal window at the end of the hallway gives onto the owner's son's bedroom, with a hexagon-pierced cube bedside table. In the hallway, the linen cupboard doors have applied mouldings in a random geometry.
