Yesterday I took you to London to join in the fun I had while attending the ‘Meet the Blogger’ conference. Later this week I will take you on our ‘design tour’ through Portobello and Notting Hill, that was part of the blogger conference, too. Hence, I’ve decided to make this a UK week on Happy Interior Blog. The ‘Happy Brits Awards’ if you want so.
We won’t move to far thus – we will stay in London and I want to draw your attention to the highlights that caught my eye in the living room of the British designer Harriet Anstruther. The mid-19th century house in London has lots to offer (more HERE) but the living room really caught my eye. Here is why:
- Fiery, pink velvet sofa: One accent piece of furniture can set the entire tone of a room. In this case, the fiery, pink velvet sofa has a strong visual power and speaks of the creative minds living in this home. Its colour is reflected in the cushion on the other sofa and caught up by the large scale art above it.
- Large scale art: This is the next highlight. A grand room calls for grand art. Here, the colourful painting adds interest and drama to the room and creates a sort of ‘colourful cell’ with the sofa.
- Bay Window: For someone living in Germany, bay windows are a sheer highlight to me. They are not common at all here and every time I’m in the UK, I like to peek through the bay windows in the happy homes of the Brits.
