FROM THE

F

ebruary is an excellent month for staying at home. Throw a log on the fire and curl up on the sofa... alternatively, shop for a whole new fireplace and upgrade the sofa. Maybe even to a coral velvet one. 2019 is already proving an exciting year for interiors, with Living Coral optimistically named as the shade of the year. Whatever your position on this, whether you are rushing to paint your walls orangey-pink, or planning a more subtle nod to the trend, or if you'll just ignore it entirely, there's something life-affirming about a shade that's not afraid to be this bright. And at the other end of the design spectrum, 2019 marks 100 years since an art school opened in Germany with the aim of perfecting the relationship between art and design. Personally I have been obsessed with all things Bauhaus since my first visit to the musuem in Berlin many years ago, where the stark, elegant aesthetic struck me as the epitome of cool. So I am thrilled that the philosophies and designs of this institution are taking the spotlight and casting their influence widely. Perhaps not over the Living Coral movement, but Bauhaus is set to be huge for the whole year. We hope you enjoy this issue.

winging London: A Lifestyle Revolution presents the fashion, design and art of the Chelsea Set, a group of radical young architects, designers, photographers and artists who were redefining the concept of youth and challenging the established order in 1950s London. At the forefront of this group of young revolutionaries were Mary Quant and Terence Conran. Spanning the period from 1952 – 1977, the exhibition includes fashion, textiles, furniture, lighting, homewares, ceramics and ephemera, exploring not only the style but the socioeconomic importance of this transformative period. Key pieces include rare and early examples of designs by Conran and Quant, plus the avant-garde artists, designers and intel-

lectuals who worked alongside them, such as designers Bernard and Laura Ashley, sculptor Eduardo Paolozzi and artist and photographer Nigel Henderson. PVC coats, OP Art and Space Age dresses by Mary Quant are seen alongside the early smocks, textile designs and dresses of Laura and Bernard Ashley and the modern wicker, steel and glass furniture of Terence Conran. The exhibition also includes the textiles, ceramics and furniture of Eduardo Paolozzi and Nigel Henderson, who were founding members of the Independent Group and together created innovative designs under their company, Hammer Prints, set up in 1954. The exhibition spotlights not only the design of the period, but also the creation of trailblazing shopping experiences - from Mary Quant’s rebellious London boutique ‘Bazaar’ (opened in 1955) to Terence Conran’s Habitat (opened in 1964). These shops were not just about designing for a new youth generation, but also promoting a new way of shopping and living. With Bazaar, Quant irreversibly altered the traditional approach to fashion design and retailing and outraged the all-powerful French fashion establishment. With Habitat, Conran created a retail environment that was a total work of art; ‘a Gesamntkunstwerk’, combining the theatre of The Chelsea Set’s London, with the relatively new phenomenon of ‘serve yourself’, supermarket-style shopping. The influence of France (Conran first visited in 1953) can be seen in Conran’s informal, light and bright styling, with merchandise piled high, reminiscent of the hustle and bustle of a colourful street market. Early designs by Quant for Bazaar are plain, unadorned and unstructured; simple pinafores with dropped waistlines often worn with coloured stockings. A remarkable cotton, red and white Broderie Anglaise lounging ensemble by Quant (1955/56), will be shown alongside a range of furniture, fabrics, enamelware and ephemera from the first days of Habitat. In order to spotlight not just the fashion, but the lifestyle and design of the time, Swinging London: A Lifestyle Revolution is presented in the form of detailed tableaus. During the mid 1950s, the increasing availability of inexpensive foreign package holidays and of films with exotic European settings inspired the eruption of coffee bars, bistros and other

such distinctly continental establishments on British high streets. Throughout the exhibition, individual sets are inspired by these new and exciting continental trends, utilising fashion, furniture, textiles, ceramics and more to highlight how changes in social attitude intertwined with new ways of shopping, to create the designs that are now synonymous with 1960s life. There’s also an insight into the lesser-known early work of Laura and Bernard Ashley, whose ideas were influencing culture long before their iconic florals. Bernard Ashley’s textile design, Jazz Players, was probably the first example of a ‘Pop’ textile, whilst Laura’s simple hard-wearing striped smocks, aprons and the easy to wear ‘basic dress’ would go on to become design classics. Furnishing fabrics by Laura and Bernard Ashley will be shown alongside ceramics by W.R Midwinter, jewellery by Wendy Ramshaw, textiles by David Whitehead, lighting by Bernard Schottlander, untouched makeup palettes and accessories by Mary Quant and myriad other ephemera, which will together create a comprehensive insight into the period.

he detail and skill in Katie Spragg’s ceramic sculptures can conjure memories and sensations of the wilderness of summer meadows in the warm afternoon sunshine. Her beautifully formed blades of grass and wheat pushing through rocks and stone are evocative depictions of the natural world. To commission a piece from Spragg would be a powerful way to keep or relive a memory or moment. “I’m interested in how you can represent a place through an object,” she says, “and I’m seeking to evoke feelings and memories we associate with special places.” Collect 2019, The International Art Fair for Modern Craft and Design returns to the Saatchi Gallery for its 15th edition 28 February – 3 March 2019. The gallery-presented fair dedicated to modern craft and design, provides an opportunity to invest in exceptional work and commission to order.

Ceramicist Katie Spragg, who is represented by gallerist Joanna Bird Contemporary Collections, is just one of the many artists exhibiting at Collect and she welcomes personal commissions (from £650). Commissions are a key part of Collect and it’s an area that has grown exponentially. The boundaries between craft and art have heated up more than ever with impressive price tags for Craft – a bowl by Lucie Rie, Austrian-born British potter sold for $212,000 - five times its estimate at Phillips New York recently and galleries are increasingly curating craft in a fineart way. Craft is a movement, not a moment. Commissioning is one of the most exciting ways to buy into craft but it’s a two-way process for the artist and client. It’s the larger pieces that are often proving most popular with bespoke clients. As a result of Collect 2018, interior architect Liaigre commissioned an installation for its Mayfair store from South London-based Brazilian artist Valeria Nascimento via UK gallery Jaggedart. Entitled ‘Rainforest’, the installation consists of thou-

sands of hand-crafted, paper-thin porcelain petals hanging on delicate strands from the ceiling. As Valeria says: “Working to commission is one of the most stimulating ways to create. These requests lead to new processes of making and as an artist, exploring these limitless boundaries is what keeps me inspired.” But it doesn’t have to be large scale. Most artists have a problem-solving mindset combined with an emotional, human connection and empathy, as well as a deep material skill and artistic knowledge that comes from training and learning, creating results that can be truly stunning. But how to ensure the commissioning process goes smoothly and delivers the returns you want? Buying and working directly with a gallery is a good way as their expertise, advice and knowledge of the artists they represent will be hugely valuable to anyone considering commissioning from an artist. Deborah Finn, of gallery Cavaliero Finn advises, “Before commissioning an artist, make sure you know the full scope of the artist’s work. Discuss with them those pieces you’re drawn to and those that appeal less. That way you can be truly confident that whatever your chosen artist creates, you will like it.” As with any transaction, it’s a good idea to be clear from the outset in terms of budget, timings and expectations. Both parties should sign a contract and the client should expect to pay 50% of the fee up front. Angel Monzon at Vessel gallery, which specializes in glass, adds: ‘The key thing is not to be too prescriptive: you are commissioning a work that is the artist’s creation, not yours. Keep the lines of communication open and enjoy the process. The result will be magical.”

ALGIERS ROAD LEWISHAM, SE13 GRUFF LIMITED

A single-storey residential extension in South London defined by a pair of chimneys and materially bound by a continuous concrete ribbon puncturing the building envelope.

DUSHEIKO HOUSE HACKNEY, N16 NEIL DUSHEIKO ARCHITECTS

This remodeled terrace house, with double volume interconnected spaces between floors, celebrates natural light and materials and features an outdoor shower open to the sky.

Dusheiko House was designed by the architect for himself and his family. There were a number of key problems the existing layout presented that needed to be solved, including poor lighting and no connection to the garden. Light and circulation issues were improved by moving the staircase to the opposite wall - connecting the living room space directly to the kitchen. By removing part of the rear façade, a large sloped double storey skylight brings light into the two levels. There is emphasis on using durable natural materials like wood and stone throughout and there are four opening vents, allowing passive cooling during the summer months.

Two main concepts accentuated the strong relationship between the extension and garden; the rear glazing is composed of sliding panels with minimal frames offering seamless long views through the house to the garden beyond, and the pair of chimneys are materially melded by a continuous concrete ribbon threading across the envelope. The extension draws the outdoors in, and the indoors out via the delicate material transition from the boardmarked chimney externally to smooth and polished inside along the surface of the ribbon. The concrete elements define the sung area and contrast with the natural tones and timber finishes elsewhere, further emphasised by the step in floor level. Externally, the concrete fireplace and slab encourages gathering on the decking long into summer nights. Externally, the charred cladding seamlessly folds into the pergola and decking, creating a bold and distinctive profile and accentuating the concrete chimney puncturing through the silhouette.

LAURISTON ROAD BREAKOUT EXTENSION CROUCH END HARINGEY, N8 KNOTT ARCHITECTS

A small one-bedroom flat breaks out into a small yard, resulting in an extra bedroom.

This small one-bedroom flat in the Crouch End Conservation Area became too small on the arrival of the owners' first child. The small rear/side garden, with its skewed boundary fences, offered the only room for expansion. Two extensions break out from the existing bedroom, responding to, and limited by, the angles of the fences. In a potentially darker corner the roofw breaks out by being prized open, and folded back, allowing the daylight in.

FOLDED WEDGE TOWNHOUSE FOREST HILL, SE23 RUSSELL HUNT ARCHITECTS

Wedge-shaped extension to 1970s townhouse creating a tall, lightfilled, semi-underground space with a folded roof expressed internally in exposed timber

This end-of-terrace town house has been extended and reorganised to maximise space and light for family life. The site featured a narrow, wedge-shaped piece of land to the side of the house. In order to minimise impact on neighbouring houses, the built form had to be kept to a minimum from the outside with no overlooking windows. The varying roof pitches allow the internal volume to be maximised at the rear, appearing modestly scaled to the front and side. A new structural opening in the side of the house creates a full width kitchen, dining and living space at the rear.

MONTAGUE COURT HACKNEY, E8 IF_DO

Rethinking underused spaces in an apartment in a former synagogue, responding creatively to significant site constraints whilst celebrating and enhancing a distinctive piece of local architecture

BROCKLEY HOUSE LEWISHAM, SE4 SAM ARCHITECTS & LUNAR ARCHITECTS

Black charred larch-clad side and rear extension to a victorian house located in Brockley creating open plan living with modern urban garden.

The large single storey rear and side infill extension creates a collection of spaces for modern life with an emphasis on open plan living with fluid circulation and interconnected spaces. The extension acts as a transitional space between the existing formal living and the outdoor space. The pitched volume minimises the impact on neighbouring properties while maximising the height of the dining space. Black charred larch cladding distinguishes the addition from its Victorian context.

Renovating, thermally upgrading and extending an apartment situated within a former synagogue, this project creates a much needed second bedroom/study and enhances the eccentricities of the existing building. Shaped by the highly unusual geometry of the site, the new extension is slotted directly between the existing brick walls of the synagogue and site boundary, and is formed by seven exposed structural timber posts that support a triangulated roof. Large triangular rooflights bring light into the space, transforming a dark and unused courtyard into a new study, celebrating connection to garden and sky, and retaining the sun-filled south-facing garden.

LAURISTON ROAD HACKNEY, E9 GUNDRY + DUCKER

A part-two storey rear extension to update a maisonette, with carefully considered materials.

Replacing a set of dilapidated extensions, this two-storey extension to a ground floor and basement maisonette within a Victorian terraced house has created a bright new living space and upstairs studio room with L-shaped corner window for the photographer client. The unlit space at the centre of the plan is used as a bathroom and utility room. The extension has a rich but simple materiality, built in the form of an exposed concrete table with different sized and shaped ‘legs’ placed against the rear of the original house. The spaces between the legs are filled with windows, brick or painted plaster.

LOFT LIBRARY WALTHAM FOREST, E17 ARBOREAL ARCHITECTURE

Innovative conversion of a trussed rafter roof, creating a CNC-cut plywood-arched libary

Working with a tight budget within a two-storey 1980s end-ofterrace house, this design works within the fabric of the existing building rather than creating a new loft structure or extension. Utilising the awkward spaces within the single pitch, trussed rafter roof, the design replaces the diagonal truss members with plywood arches to form the Loft Library – providing a stair access, four new windows, and a library space formed entirely of 18mm spruce plywood, including a small bench, shelves between arches and a study space at the end. To create the curved arches, detailed measurements were taken of the existing space, with templates then drawn in CAD and plywood elements cut precisely to size.

REUSE FLAT HACKNEY, E9 ARBOREAL ARCHITECTURE

TILE HOUSE

Aiming for zero waste in construction through innovative reuse of materials today and design for the disassembly and reuse of those materials in the future.

HACKNEY, E5 BEASLEY DICKSON ARCHITECTS

Inspired by the owners’ passion for the decorative arts, this Edwardian family home features a rear extension covered in glazed blue tiles.

Faced with a significant level change from the front of the house to the back, the clients’ brief was for a home organised around a central kitchen space, which reflected their passion for the decorative arts. Excavation of the existing basement provided a new bedroom and ensuite to the front, and a utility to the rear connecting directly to the kitchen. The kitchen pivots between basement and raised ground floor, with large glazed openings and vibrant colours that draw the eye through. Externally, the rear extension features a lightweight sloping glass roof and faceted bespoke glazed tile facade.

Renovating the kitchen, dining and living areas of a ground floor flat, this project adds a new interior lining, comprising wall panelling and cabinetry made from reclaimed wood – which contains a membrane to increase airtightness – and cotton insulation to improve thermal performance. The lining is fixed directly onto the existing walls and assembled with reusable materials and fasteners (no glue) so that it can be disassembled and reused in the future. Broken bricks, concrete and wood collected during the project were reused in a gabion garden wall, with the wood drilled for insect habitat. Internally, the old wood floor was reused as the new wall lining, and old windows became a glazed partition in the office.

ree forms guided by wonderfully sleek aesthetics is what Formae is all about: furnishings with a light-hearted, yet distinctive influence. Based in the heart of the Tuscan valleys, the Formae brand is a family company. Skilled metalworker Gennaro Tramonti creates unique objects made of metal together with his children, Simone and Laura, in the family’s true calling. Formae’s pieces are characterised by design creativity and a search for beauty modelled into deliberately simple forms: pure geometries and linear surfaces in which the ideal of less is more is embodied and enhanced by artisan craftsmanship. Formae’s range of furniture and accessories are designed to be functional domestic presences, with wonderfully sleek aesthetics which are unashamedly a little poppy. The design cues reference Scandi style and lessons from Memphis, interpreted through a simple, contemporary design language. The artistic director is Leonardo Fortino, a young designer who nevertheless boasts extensive experience in the metal production sector; his formal research process centres on geo-metry, revisited through a process of summary and simplification. The collections feature a colour palette of pastel tones which are at the same time warm and vibrant, half-way between the North Sea and the Mediterranean.

Estensioni is the brand’s first collection, which officially marks its passage from Car-Met toFormae; It is composed of visually light objects, where geometric linearity and graphical accents are accentuated only by the artisan processes – laser cutting, welding, mechanical connection,manual bending and punching – used during their creation. The final painting process then confersa texture with a porous effect which allows the colour palette of neutral and pastel tones to maintain a warm, tactile note. Part of the Estensioni collection, the products Engioi, Ambrogio and Half Moon can be considered illustrative of Formae’s entire production due to their style and manufacturing characteristics. formaecollection.com

I N T H E S T U D I O Thornback and Peel, in their own words

Interview F LO R A T H O M A S

JULIET THORNBACK AND DELIA PEEL are a British design duo. I visited their studio in Bloomsbury to quiz them on their success. How did you meet? DP: We were set up by a mutual friend - I was in the middle of a set-design job at a theatre and there was some down time between shows. I wanted to do some printing and I’d heard that Juliet was brilliant at making bags. So we met at The French House in Soho and decided to design and sell a collection of bags. JT: We invited all our friends to a private view. We’d made tote and evening bags, printed with anatomy: we had brains, gold teeth… we used lots of gold foiling and geometric prints. Lots of little beetles and bees. I was working in a florist, and on days off we’d do some printing and I’d go home and start making it up. But it was too labour intensive. We thought about what might be marginally less labour intensive - what’s flat? Deckchairs came next. DP: We did some tea towels. We were still printing everything ourselves. We did so for a really long time, way beyond when we should have stopped. When we had children we started to get some help; I was on maternity leave so we had an assistant - Juliet was pregnant at the

46

time as well. She could barely reach the press over her pregnant belly. Over the course of five years we passed the business between us. Once with just two weeks of handover. Where were you selling your items? DP: Initially we continued to do private views. They’re great. People are kind but they’re honest! Then Liberty approached us. JT: We were in Deptford at Cockpit Studios, they do an Open Studio twice a year and a buyer from Liberty came along one summer and saw our work, they asked us for some cards, then we did our first trade show. DP: We sold to Family Tree in Exmouth Market too, initially it was lots of little shops which allowed us to understand the structure and the process of selling to stockists.

D E S I G N | INTERVIEW

Delia Peel and Juliet Thornback

How did people react to your work? JT: We were slightly out there with our designs. DP: I think now people would immediately take to it but it wasn’t mainstream back then. We had an American agent who said that one buyer literally picked up a cushion, saw what she thought was a cockroach and chucked it across the aisle at a trade show. Where do you find inspiration for your designs? JT: It might be that we’ve been away for the weekend and seen something we love… and thought ‘that’s it’. Or we’ll think ‘right, we need to do something seasonal’ and go from there. We can only have one or two new designs a year, so it’s about editing what we have down to something we can make rather than coming up with ideas. DP: Sometimes we look at our collection and think it’s not an obviously coherent mix of designs, and that’s fine by us. We love it. The ideas always come during downtime. Take our blackbird, there’s heaps of nostalgia in it. It comes from walking the kids to school: there’s a little blackbird on our route. The new cactus and bird print, as well as the pineapple, came from looking at Victorian hothouses and going to Kew. The inspiration for the rabbit and cabbage was obviously Beatrix Potter. I grew up with a walled garden, so memories from my childhood end up on the page. Ideas often come when reading stories to our children. The tea cup design is inspired by Alice in Wonderland.

D E S I G N | INTERVIEW

Tell me about the design process. JT: Some of it is existing imagery that we doctor. 19th century engravings, for example, which are copyright-free. DP: Then we draw into them. So take our blackbird, for example: when we found him he was very long – far too long – so we’ve squashed him up a bit. With our pea print, we found a beautiful old engraving and added the curly tail which is actually a from a pig in a previous design. It’s all very Frankenstein. Sometimes we have to redraw things because it’ll be too fine to print. Then it goes back and forth from page to table to computer. Placing designs on products takes up a lot of our time. While some designers make a print, usually a fairly small repeat, then make heaps of fabric to cut up to make different things, we need the quality of line to be spot on, so we design each item individually. JT: We’ve really thought about the placement of things. It’s slightly a rod for our own backs. We like to think it sets us apart. When the samples come in and they’re beautiful it’s a lovely moment. Our cactus has been a really easy ride, because it came out perfectly first time. Tell me about your collaborations and limited editions. DP: Over the years we’ve collaborated with lots of really exciting people. One of our first collaborations was with the wonderful Conran Shop. We did a couple of seasons: the first was a utensils range, then some products on the theme of gardens. JT: They were exclusives for Conran so they came and went. The designs were of spoons, weighing scales, sugar tongs… on tea towels, aprons and placemats. Some elements were mixed up, so you’d have a fork where a fork is meant to be, but pliers in place of a knife. It was a really exciting time. We designed some banners for their shop which was really Delia’s forte - very theatrical.

DP: We designed deckchairs for Sarah Raven; exclusives for Oliver Sweeney; we’ve worked with GOOP, designing some bespoke tea towels. JT: Gwyneth (Paltrow) asked us to create exclusive designs for her shop. It was a knife – her father’s knife, an apple, an American flag and a pirate. What are you most proud of? DP: We continue to work with Fortnum and Mason on exclusives. It’s brilliant, it’s lovely going into the shop and seeing our designs. JT: It was an amazing brief - they have some beehives on top of their shop and they asked us to create a design featuring them. We love it and it has continued to sell really well. What are your plans for the future? JT: We want to do a cookbook! Our styling is so food-orientated. DP: We’re working on a wallpaper and fabric project for this year, which we hope to launch in September, so we’ll see. thornbackandpeel.com

lex Pall, half of Grammy-winning DJ duo Chainsmokers, bought this house in the Hollywood Hills two years ago. Built in the 1930s and renovated in the 1980s and again in the 1990s, the hodgepodge of architectural styles and the house’s industrial edge appealed to him, but when it came to decorating it, he sought professional help from New York-based interior designed Peti Lau. Lau calls her signature style AristoFreak. Her worldly inspirations are shown in eclectic colours, patterns and textures to create romance and moods in all of her spaces. AristoFreak emerged from Peti’s early career in Thailand, Mauritius, and Europe through her adventures as an expatriate, influenced by her love of art, travel and lifestyle. Her curiosity for exploration ultimately led her to the concrete jungle of New York City. AristoFreak evolved through the ideology of old world charms adapted for modern living. Over the past decade, Lau’s projects have brought her to locations such as Los Angeles, London, Brighton, Koh Samui in Thailand, India and Mauritius. Her eclectic style has attracted a wide range of clients. Pall had already installed the nature-themed wallpaper and the orange velvet couch in the family room when Lau began decorating the

house. She continued the interior-jungle theme, as she called it, with a natural-fibre coffee table that evokes dried versions of the leaves on the wall, and leopard and tribal print pillows . The orange, green and blue palette of the painting by Hassan Hajjaj (according to Lau, he’s Morocco’s Andy Warhol) recurs in trippy throws and pillows from Silken Favours and a vintage Turkish rug laid over a larger jute rug. “A classic antique rug is a nice way to stabilize all the stuff that’s going on,” she says. The living room has a retro feel, thanks partly to an impressive sideboard. Inspired by the 007 films, Essential Home’s Monocle sideboard is built from solid walnut and accented by gold-plated front doors featuring a protruding circular design. The circles are engraved to the back and side of the unit, making the whole piece stand out for its striking mid-century aesthetic. “The house had this built-in eclecticism,” says Lau,a Chinese-Vietnamese American born in Israel whose own influences might be similarly characterized. “It felt appropriate to approach each interior space as its own unique environment.” She brashly mixed decades and colours and incorporated Pall’s growing contemporary art collection, an approach that holds each room together.

The Legacy T H E K I T C H E N A I D S TA N D M I X E R Words

PEARL BOYD

I It was one of the first appliances to be exhibited in museums of modern art

n 1908, after watching a baker mix bread dough with a heavy iron spoon, Ohio-based engineer Herbert Johnston developed a stand mixer to help alleviate the backbreaking work. By 1919 the first household mixer, boasting the unique planetary action and famous curves, was ready for market. During a product test, the wife of an employee exclaimed “I don’t care what you call it, it’s the best kitchen aid I’ve ever had!”. And the rest, as they say, is history … It caused a sensation and demand was enormous, even from famous names including businessman Henry Ford, actors John Barrymore and Ginger Rogers and Julia Childs, the American cook, author and television personality. But with Johnston’s insistence on quality, only four machines were able to be made a day. Over the years new versions of the mixer were produced, reducing its size and weight. In 1937, Egmont Arens, editor of Creative Arts magazine and Vanity Fair and famous for his consumer-oriented designs, fused iconic design with outstanding engineering and durability to create the new tilt-head K-Model. It was one of the first appliances to be exhibited in museums of modern art. The true tribute to his talent is the fact that the KitchenAid mixer today is almost exactly the same as his original design.

At launch, the mixers were only available in white, but in 1955, Sunny Yellow, Island Green, Petal Pink, and Satin Chrome were introduced. The colour range is an instant hit and still persists today. The Artisan Stand Mixer is now available in the widest range of colours on the market. Inspired by professional bakers and chefs, KitchenAid continued to re-invent and improve innovative solutions for passionate home cooks. From the beginning, KitchenAid mixers came with various attachments. Today, the latest addition to the range - the New Artisan Stand Mixer in Misty Blue still features the famous attachment-ready Culinary Hub now with over 15 optional accessories enabling everything from slicing, grating, chopping and peeling, to juicing and spiralizing. There are also tools to prepare fresh pasta and the dual purpose transparent pouring shield allows a clear view of what’s happening in the bowl while making it easy to add ingredients without splashing. kitchenaid.co.uk

BACK TO BAU HAUS 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the influential Bauhaus art school. The gatekeepers of modernism, it nurtured some of the finest designers of the 20th century, establishing a pure, rational design ethos. In celebration of this seismic legacy, we’re predicting the return of iconic tubular chairs and beautiful cabinets in primary colours — just some of the tenets of their iconic style. STYLING TIP Pair Bauhaus furniture with similarly iconic details — cowhide prints, Mondrian Lines and strong splashes of colour

GLASS AC T In keeping with the desire for a warm and welcoming home, we’re starting to see a shift in how one of design’s most ancient materials is being used. Leading the fore are brands like Fiam and Glas Italia, whose daring experiments with glass have transformed it into a soft and tactile element. From the lava-like ripples of the Magma Dining Table through to the billowing forms of Bocci’s 73 Pendant, glass in 2019 is full of life. STYLING TIP Make the most of this dazzling decor by positioning it in rooms that benefit from lots of natural light.

V I N TA G E GLAMOUR 2018 heralded the return of scalloped edges, velvet loungers and art deco influences.

ive in a small apartment but love color? Take inspiration from interior designer and stylist Laura Fulmine, who used an expertly executed palette of rich shades to define the different areas of her 57 m2 (614 ft2) apartment, which is located in a turn-of-the-century mansion block in east London. “Creating different identities for each room makes the flat feel like a much bigger space,” explains Fulmine, who lived in the apartment for two years before decorating it and let the trajectory of the sun inform the colors she chose. Now, a luxurious green provides the backdrop for a mix of collected treasures in the living room, while the cheerful study is painted in a heritage pink. The bedroom, which gets the least light, features a restful dark blue, while the bathroom and kitchen are bright white to make the most of the morning sun.

oko Kloeden Design has recently completed the interior design and decoration of a 1930s threestory terrace house in southwest London. The clients, a couple who both work in finance with two young children, completed a major house renovation including the ground floor rear extension and loft conversion when they moved into the house; however, having moved from a one-bed flat and both working full-time, they still didn’t feel at home a year later as most of the rooms were still bare and underused. After having interviewed five interior designers, the couple engaged Yoko and her team. The brief was to pull the family together in the open-plan family area, while the husband and wife each have a break-out room that reflects their individual needs and personalities. Yoko and her team used colours and textures to express each individual’s style while giving a practical solution for the young family. The result is an elegant and contemporary family home that still feels comfortable and practical while everyone has a space of privacy and aspiration . ‘Knowing that our clients now have a home they will enjoy for decades to come keeps us going every day‘, says Yoko. The clients embraced dark and moody colours and their bold choice of colours starts with the hallway. With the inky blue colour as a background, Yoko selected an abstract landscape painting that reflects the clients’ love of nature but in a contemporary and stylized expression. Slender frames and legs of powder-coated steel furniture give a chic and airy appearance. The bespoke kitchen from Wooden Horse London was designed to fit the space with lots of storage. A marble island takes centre

stage and plain white surfaces were chosen for other cabinets and worktop to let the island stand out. The dining table and chairs sit at the centre of the open-plan area and they had to be elegant, understated, and unique. A bespoke live edge oak dining table with classic Wishbone chairs demonstrates the philosophy of using real materials and understated elegance. The family includes two children under three, so the space had to be practical and safe without compromising on sophisticated aesthetics. Yoko schemed the area around two key features – a framed artwork of bespoke wallpaper from Calico Wallpaper and a bespoke media unit made of black stained oak with brass detailing. She says: ‘In Japan, we have a culture of developing taste buds at a very early age. The concept of kids menus in restaurants is nowhere as ubiquitous as here in the UK as people believe babies and toddlers need to eat real foods that adults eat. In the same way, children need to grow up with real materials to develop their senses. Family rooms shouldn’t be all about wipeable surfaces.’’ The bespoke rug is made of soft jute that is hardwearing but soft to crawl on. Coffee tables of different sizes are made of mango wood. Yoko’s team designed a media unit that consists of low units to store children’s books and toys and a slim tall unit to store files etc. The starting point of for the reception room, also as known as ‘Her Room’, was an Art Deco-inspired drinks cabinet bought by the client at the beginning of the project.

This is her grown-up haven where she winds down with a glass of wine after the children are finally asleep, where she entertains her friends on weekends and during her maternity leave. Yoko custom-made a Millennial pink velvet sofa and selected an artwork from a Sydneybased British artist Caroline Collom to anchor the colour palette. The team filled the room with sumptuous, tactile and real materials such as marble, brass, steel, velvet, wool and sourced indoor plants to liven up the room. ‘His Room’ is referred to as the ‘games room’ and this is where her husband winds down by playing a computer game at the end of his long day at his demanding job in finance. Originally a garage, it is the smallest living room and he opted for the darkest shade of grey to feel cozy and cocooned as he uses ‘His Room’ mostly in the evenings. A Fornasetti mural makes a perfect backdrop and the rich moss green of the velvet sofa pops against the dark walls. The newly converted loft houses a master bedroom with an ensuite shower room. The wall behind the bed hides a walk-in wardrobe and dressing table. Here again, the inky blue was chosen for the calm and serene haven. Dreamy white waves and a dawn sky of a photography art shot on a remote beach in Iceland sums up the mood. The alcove above the bed is a practical alternative to a pair of bedside tables in this tight space. yokokloeden.com

lain English was conceived by accident 25 years ago when Katie Fontana and her husband Tony Niblock swapped life in the capital for a rural idyll in Suffolk. “We decided to move to Suffolk and take the time out to build our own house, so it was an interesting year of living in a caravan. When it came to the kitchen, I assumed that I’d be able to find something and just buy it. But there was nothing I liked. Everything had twiddly bits or was too look-at-me flashy. In the end I found a local joiner and we did it ourselves.” That might have been the end of the story had it not been for the nudge from a friend to enter the house into a Telegraph competition for the best self-build house in the country. “We came runner up and were later featured in a magazine. People kept calling to ask where we’d got our kitchen. So without thinking things began to take shape. I was quite resistant at first; to me, as an interior designer, just doing kitchens seemed quite limited, but Tony insisted.” Twenty-five years on, Plain English is still the cognoscenti’s favourite, its incomparable honest craftsmanship and its spare simplicity outstripping other, slicker, contenders. Plain English Kitchens are so versatile, as at home in country homes as they are in more urban settings. “I think it’s because we’re selling good, honest, non-branded cupboards, so you can dress them up or down. I am very anti-ostentation and I hate this obsession with logos emblazoned everywhere. Historically,

HOME admires the bright shades in Plain English’s newest kitchen project Words E V E H E R B E R T

kitchens were just functional, which is why I’ve always liked the below-stairs kitchen quarters of stately homes. Ultimately, I like the elemental things in life: marble, slate, wood. I think sub-consciously it’s all about stuff that will stand the test of time.” On Fontana’s watch, the likes of pantries and sculleries are afforded their place once more, rescued from the wasteland of upstairs-downstairs period dramas. “In the 1960s, everyone wanted to be so modern and get rid of the larder and you can understand it. They’d all been to the Ideal Home Show! But it’s like a pendulum swinging, now we’re seeing the value in those rooms again.” This brightly coloured kitchen features handcrafted Plain English Spitalfields cupboards with a contemporary Osea island and theatrical woven lighting taking centre stage. The open plan space is perfect for cooking, entertaining and family life. Cupboards are painted in a variety of bright and bold Plain English colours: Starched Apron, Boiled Dishcloth and Pretty Pickle. plainenglishdesign.co.uk HOME ž FEBRUARY 2019

F Corian is a great product because it can be made seamless

or this Wandsworth kitchen, the client wanted to install Higham’s Handleless Shaker style. The brief was to install a very long island that would need to house a fair amount of storage including a sink, dishwasher and bins as there were going to be no wall cabinets. As the client wanted a considerably large island it was decided that Corian would be the perfect fit. Corian is a great product because it can be made seamless and it helps portray the contemporary feel that the client wanted to achieve. The sink is positioned to one side of the island to provide more worktop space for prepping, etc. The back of the island consists of glazed base cabinets which show off their crockery and reflects more natural light into this light and airy space. The paint colours contrast beautifully with the exposed brick wall and tie in nicely with the Limestone flooring. Founded in 2004, Higham Furniture specialises in designing and manufacturing high quality, bespoke furniture. From their London studio they work with customers to put together their designs before they are realised in the Hampshire manufacturing workshop. Customers are encouraged to visit the workshop so they can get an insight into the materials, quality, flexibility and the sheer work involved in realising their designs. As Higham carries out both the design and manufacturing element themselves, they are able to offer a high degree of personalisation, quality and service. Though the core business is about cabinetry, they also assist customers with their worktops, appliances and handles.

hinking of a loft conversion but need some design inspiration? From black bathrooms to bright botanicals, make note of these five key trends to take you through to 2019 ahead of the style curve.

M O D E R N B L AC K BAT H R O O M S

Black may not be the first colour that springs to mind for your bathroom, but think again in 2019. A few splashes of black against more traditional bathroom colours makes for a stunning contrast in your en-suite. It works particularly well on metals - think taps, showers, storage shelves - to create an industrial look that’s bang on trend for the New Year. Featuring hints of black in your wall or flooring patterns

It’s time to forget everything you thought you knew about black. Dark and dingy? Never!

is another fabulous way to incorporate this trend. It’s time to forget everything you thought you knew about black. Dark and dingy? Never!

B OTA N I CA L B E AU T Y

It’s a well known fact that plants are good for the soul - whether they’re real, faux, or even just printed on the wallpaper. Don’t worry if you haven’t got green fingers; botanical prints can add a fun twist to the most minimalist rooms. From monochrome to neon, big to small, this trend can work anywhere. Why not try juxtaposing colours and textiles against one another? Framed botanical wall art contrasted against leafy bedsheets and cushions will create a striking focal point in your loft bedroom.

B O L D CO LO U R S

Relax, we’re not going to suggest painting your walls fluorescent yellow or laying shocking pink carpets. The key thing to remember with this trend is that less is more, especially when space is limited. Just a pop of unexpected colour can be fabulously effective. You

can incorporate it in to your loft conversion in all manner of ways; consider a brightly coloured door, a feature wall or even some standout tiles in your en-suite. Accentuate the theme by coordinating with accessories around your loft, from rugs and pillowcases to more subtle inclusions on ceramics and soap dispensers.

V I N TAG E F U R N I S H I N G S

Vintage style might feel tricky to curate, but don’t be put off. The trick to avoid looking like a mismatched jumble sale is to stick to pieces from the same era. For instance, 1970s vintage is totally on trend for 2019, and with just a few carefully chosen staple pieces you can transform your London loft conversion to a bohemian San Francisco style attic. And the best part? You can pick up vintage pieces for a total steal from plenty of London markets, so keep your eyes peeled and you can start your collection right away.

DA R K E XT E R I O R S

As the saying goes, it’s what’s on the inside that counts... but when it comes to a loft conversion, the outside is pretty important too. Dark exterior walls on a loft conversion are one of the hottest design trends for 2019, with black rendering or wooden panelling proving popular. Black makes a dramatic statement, especially when contrasted against the rest of the property - and the neighbours. It’s one way to stand out from the crowd, that’s for sure.

HOME discovers Rise & Fall’s new comfortable and sustainable bed linen

hat do we expect from our bed sheets? Comfort is an obvious primary demand, but sustainable and ethical production is a growing concern for most of us. Then there’s the issue of choice – too many options and we can be left baffled. And not least, sleeping in a comfortable bed may make us consider the increasing numbers of people who don’t have a bed at all as homelessness in London becomes more and more visible. When Jed Coleman - co-founder of Caravan Restaurants - and Will Coulter - former management consultant - founded Rise and Fall as a simple supplier of high quality, fuss-free bedlinen, homelessness was high on their agenda. Built into the business model was a commitment to supporting homelessness charity Centrepoint and now £3 from every set of sheets sold goes directly to the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity, helping to get young people off the streets. Rise & Fall sells two types of sheet only – one softer, the other crisper. Both come with a 100 day risk free trial, so if you don’t find their sheets the ‘most comfortable sheets you have ever slept in’, they’ll refund you fully. The founders work with a partner in Southern India that runs entirely on wind energy, recycles 99% of its water and offers free education and upskilling to its predominantly female workforce. Instead of plastic packaging, the sheets are sold in recycled and reusable materials. Jed Coleman said: “The idea for Rise & Fall came at a time when we were both working

long hours – sleep was invaluable, but hampered by uncomfortable sheets that had been treated with harsh chemicals and didn’t fit the bed properly. Further, the whole process of buying sheets (in store, with endless confusing choice) seemed like it could use an overhaul. We just thought there had to be a better way. “After thousands of hours of research, 100s of samples and four continents we settled on two different types of sheet and by cutting out the middlemen and selling online only we have been able to keep prices where they should be.. We’ve also put a lot of time into the smaller details – specially designed thick elastic bands to keep your bottom sheet pulled tight at night, thoughtfully placed labels ensure making the bed is as painless as possible, duvet covers that have extra strong button closures that are easy to do up and pillow cases that use generous envelope flaps to ensure no pillow spillage.” R I S E A N D FA L L www.riseandfall.co | @riseandfallco on Facebook | @ __riseandfall__ on Instagram

But with French brand Encore!, we’ve found one very worthy winner. Crafted from sustainable timber, the Encore! Forest Hut has a clever folding design that gives little ones easy access while also allowing them to shut the doors and put their doll denizens to bed. The brand also offers more modern-looking modular doll’s houses with open sides – but it’s with the accessories that Encore! really comes into its own. The brand’s dolls take the form of fabric rabbits in cute Gallic garb. Each bunny has a name – Henriette, Fernand, Augustine, etc. – and more personality than the usual identikit figurine, with their spectacles and striped Breton tops ensuring top marks in the charm stakes. Also available is a range of impossibly cute doll’s house furniture and mini accessories, from dinky wooden buggies and grocery delivery bikes to a woodburning stove and armchairs. Together, they make the Forest Hut as cosy as any real-world hideaway. Our favourite is the little wooden vegetable patch, complete with mini carrots – now your bunny family can venture out for a spot of gardening. Is it odd to be jealous of the life of a doll? smallable.com

Children’s interior designer Joanna Landais on the top nursery trends for 2019

While not everyone is enthralled by the idea of nursery design, it pays to consider the decor of your child’s space – not least because you don’t want to end up forking out for redecoration as their needs and tastes evolve over the early years. The key is to focus on flexible, progressive and multi-functional design. Going overboard with the unicorn or Winnie the Pooh theme is easy to do, so play it cool and stay calm. If you follow a few simple rules, you can easily create a stylish, practical nursery that will grow with your child. Above all, remember that designing a child’s bedroom or nursery should be enjoyable! Make sure your design reflects your style and the décor of rest of your house. Choose pieces you love and you (and your baby) will never tire of them. Be practical and consistent and don’t feel you have to plan the whole scheme in one evening. Designing space takes time and sometimes you have to mull things over before answers make themselves apparent. With that in mind, let’s look at three trends guaranteed to be shaping stylish nurseries in 2019...

“This year is all about deep and nurturing cool-based colours”

1. GOING TO THE DARK SIDE Move over lavender. This year is all about deep and nurturing cool-based colours such as mauve-greys and hunter greens. Their soothing, earthy qualities are a perfect choice for modern parents. Tonality is the key in this trend. Choose one neutral shade such as grey and layer different tones of the same colour for added depth and harmony. Look to the left and right of the colour chart and choose similar but slightly different shades of grey. You can incorporate them in the form of accessories, furniture or textiles. If you are worried about making the room look gloomy, punctuate the space with bright pops of colour such as life-affirming living coral – a vibrant peachy orange and the Pantone ‘colour of 2019’. Use colours that complement the scheme rather than overpower it. A good point of reference will be the colour wheel, showing you which colours work well together.

2. BOHO CHIC Some argue that the boho trend is not a trend, as it has been around for centuries – but folksy prints, vintage-inspired rugs and tactile pompoms have finally made it onto the nursery scene. And what an exciting scheme this is! Bright, colourful and never boring, it’s a true feast for the senses with textured accessories, bold patterns and a little bit of chaos thrown in for good measure. If you’re drawn to colourful collections and unconventional art, this is where your creativity can take centre stage. There are no fancy rules to follow – think Dutch flea-market meets Moroccan souk. Pick a few individual pieces and don’t be afraid to put pattern on pattern! Boho is all about mixing vintage and minimalist. There are no rules when it comes to colour, although oranges and warm, earthy tones are commonly used. And don’t forget to add greenery to complete the boho look.

3. GENDER-NEUTRAL More and more parents are choosing not to find out their baby’s gender until birth, which is part of the reason this trend has caught on. Bubblegum pinks and baby blues are long gone.

3 Say hello instead to soft greys, cotton whites and simple wooden furniture. This trend emphasises subtle designs marrying form and function, plus light, modern elements with no fuss or frills. To add visual interest, play around with texture and pattern. Scandinavians have been doing this for decades and their interiors are a testimony to the belief that aesthetic appeal and functional practicality can go hand in hand. This trend is also perfect for budget-conscious nursery makeovers.

he image of the 19th-century artist starving in a garret is an attractively romantic one. But, as attests the Kensington home of aesthete and neoclassicist Frederic Leighton, 1st Baron Leighton, a serious fortune awaited the more successful painters of the age. (A title too, of course, always proved persuasive to the art-buying cognoscenti of the day; and it is unlikely to have been a detracting factor in his appointment as President of the Royal Academy). Whether or not visitors are acquainted with the oeuvre of Lord Leighton, an exploration of the house that was purpose-built for him by architect George Aitchison speaks of his penchant for the eclectic, the exotic, the colourfully dramatic and the exquisite. Leighton would go on to tinker with it irresistibly over the three decades he lived there, right up to his demise; his was, after all, one of the most talked-about houses in the country. He called it his ‘private palace of art.’ The interior is the more striking for the surprises it presents. For Leighton House’s exterior – all plain, even austere red brick– is most reminiscent of a vaguely forbidding Italianate museum; the sole architectural flourish is a dome (also in red brick), the only hint at the thrilling treasures that lie inside. The sheer scale of those treasures magnifies the surprise and delight once inside. For quite beside his own works, the most famous of which reside elsewhere (Flaming June in Puerto Rico, Cimabue’s Celebrated Madonna Carried in Procession through the Streets of Florence in the National Gallery), Leighton House is, as it was always intended to be, a repository and showcase for collections amassed from Leighton’s extensive travels, for his art and taste, as well as being his workplace.

The whole house is inspired by the artist’s travels in Italy and the Middle East, but the pièce de résistance must, inarguably, be the Arab Hall, which was inspired by a 12th-century palazzo in Sicily. Archways and columns frame vistas through to a spectacular staircase, while deep blue textured antique tiles originally sourced from Damascus supply the high drama. The brick dome you see from the outside is revealed here in all its interior glory, golden and jewel-like. And suspended from it is an ornate gasolier, lighting up the square pool that sits below, as in the houses of grand Romans millennia ago. The golden hues dance in the light and the reflections of the water – all the better for admiring the glimmering glory of its mosaic frieze, designed by Walter Crane and created by legendary Venetian glass-makers, Salviati. Lord Leighton was, evidently, not a man given to understatement. Once visitors have d runk in the splendour of the Arab Hall, the adjoining Narcussus Hall awaits, named for the centrally positioned diminutive and beautiful bronze cast of that self-regarding classical figure.

I N S P I R E | HISTORY

Arts and Crafts pioneer William De Morgan, great friend of William Morris, for whom the commission was an early accolade in his career; the idea for the room, meanwhile, was Lord Leighton’s. Having seen a similar ‘Narcissus room’ among the excavated remains of a house in Pompeii, he once again sought to marry the Italian influence with Syrian, Turkish and Persian touches. At the foot of the staircase stands a stuffed peacock, an embodied metaphor for the house, and a symbol of the Aesthetic Movement to which Leighton subscribed. Also on the ground floor is the dining room, whose jewel box-like theatrical red provides a stage set for Leighton’s ceramics, which hang decoratively on the walls. And it is this that best articulates the purpose of the house; its creation was to house artefacts so avidly amassed over a life. This is not a place that simply accommodates them; they are the point, not least because they so inspired Leighton’s work. While Lord Leighton’s more official entertaining took place downstairs, his guests were, perhaps later in the evening, frequently led upstairs to his studio, the powerhouse of his creativity. In stark contrast to the ornate flourishes and sultry darkness of the more formal ground floor rooms, his studio on the first floor is cavernous and airy, all the better to stretch out his often vast canvases and to see his models, who were provided with a screen and a fireplace behind which to prepare in comfort. It was befitting of a man whose sitters were often eminent themselves, and whose visitors – who counted among their number Queen Victoria herself – even more so. It was here that he held famous musical soirées, and it was, to Leighton, an assembly room of sorts, complete with a minstrels’ gallery.

Lord Leighton was a man of whose interior life little is known; so consummate an entertainer and public persona was he that researchers have uncovered scant details of private passions. But then, perhaps, the clues to his internal machinations are all here, his calling card presented for all to see: his elaborate relics of a well-travelled life, his wit and the comfort he provided as a professional host as contrasted to the plainness of his own bedroom, where a single iron-frame bed differs little from the one in the butler’s bedroom, a cocoon from which a butterfly would emerge daily. Twists and turns of fate led to Leighton House today coming under the auspices of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Following Leighton’s death in 1896, his sisters Augusta and Alexandra attempted to sell it; but an enormous house with only one bedroom had, it transpired, limited appeal. To meet the generous legacies set out by his will, they dispersed much of his collection around the world – Constables and Delacriox paintings were bade farewell to – and so stripped of its raison d’etre, the house fell into a number of odd uses, including as a children’s library for a time. Restoration in the 1980s and 90s, allied with a much larger scale on-going project to reinstate its erstwhile glory have re-established Leighton House as a monument to the tastes and mores of one of the leading figures in Victorian art.

17th century farmhouse turned boutique bolthole, Dormy House is the perfect rural luxury getaway, set in the stunning 400 acres of the Farncombe Estate. The well-appointed rooms (some of which are dog-friendly) have been individually designed in a modern British style by Todhunter Earle. We stayed in the attic suite, with its exposed eaves and family-sized shower beside the rolltop bath – plenty of room for us all.

here are two restaurants on site and they’re popular, so booking is highly advised. We weren’t able to get a table in the Garden Room but other guests raved about the three-course showpiece menu. The seasonal dishes and cocktail menu in the Potting Shed were, however, top-notch, particularly the venison wellington and punchyou-in-the-senses Stinky Bishop cheese. Next morning, a sumptuous breakfast buffet ensured an ideal start to the day.

he Scandinavianinspired House Spa is an idyllic space to unwind. Greeted with the impressively sleek 16-metre infinity pool (open to children for limited periods in the morning and late afternoon), hotel guests can make use of all the thermal suites for free. Rural relaxation and pampering is available by the tractor-load, whether in the gentle lavender sauna, juniper-laced dry heat of the Finnish cabin or the heat of the salt steam room. We even chanced the bodyshrivelling winter temperatures outside to enjoy the al fresco hydrotherapy hot tub.

MY FAVOURITE PIECE OF ART… For scale and colour The Snail by Henri Matisse – if I ever need a pick me up I’ll nip into the Tate Modern to say hi to it. It always restores me.

MY FAVOURITE DESIGNER… Don’t make me pick! Tina Vaia is pretty special. She makes huge planters. She has a really refined understanding of colour and combined with the scale of her pieces this makes her work interesting.

M Y ST Y L E ICON... MY FAVOURITE HOLIDAY DESTINATION IS… California. The coastline is stunning and Palm Springs in the desert is just so much fun.

Elizabeth Taylor in her kaftan era.

MY SIGNATURE SCENT… Byredo Oud Immortel is my current obsession. It’s a great scent for the winter as it reminds me of hot summer nights. Abd El Kader by Cire Trudon is my go-to year round scent in the home. We spray the room spray in the store and the beautiful smell lasts all day. If I have a party I’ll spritz the whole house in it. For the depth of winter you can’t beat Ernesto by Cire Trudon.

MY FAVOURITE PIECE FROM MY CURRENT COLLECTION… Obviously, I love everything but I think it has to be the new Utopia Hip Hop Jars by Jonathan Adler. They are such fun pieces and would look incredible absolutely anywhere in the house.
