Design Journal #2

Townhouse Fulham, Lucy Marsh Interiors

New Year New Decade

I love the start of the year as it’s a time to reflect and to look forward to the year ahead. Never more so than this year – the start of a new decade. It’s an exciting year for me with some great new projects, both home and abroad, and I’ve been commissioned again by several previous clients which is always a privilege!

With the election over, and a clearer direction for the country, business is moving, people are more optimistic about renovating their homes, and the design industry is busy.

Our Latest Project: Townhouse, Fulham

This is a beautiful house set in a wide avenue in leafy London. Originally a cool Scandi grey interior, our remit was to transform it into a place of real character, with layers of pattern and warm colours. The client asked me to make it feel like home, and together we have found beautiful details to add to their existing collection which feel special, and reflect the individual personalities in the family.

We’ve added colour and definition to areas such as the hallways and staircases, with the use of floor runners and wallpapers.

We coupled existing heirloom antiques, with more contemporary items, for example in this guest bedroom.

Wallpaper from Sanderson at Style Library.

Paintwork from Farrow & Ball.

Where appropriate, we’ve brought in some contemporary elements with cool colours and clean lines as shown here.

Desk, chair and angle poise lamp from Conran.

Paper sculpture artwork from Surface ICA.

The kitchen is a cool palette, with detailed herringbone tiles from Fired Earth.

The master bedroom is a calm haven of blues and beiges, wonderful patterns and soft textures. The rug is bespoke from The Rug Company, and the wallpaper is printed to order from Lewis and Wood. We had the headboard made in plain textured linen from Stark, fabrics with detailed piping from Colefax and Fowler. The footstool and sofa were made by David Seyfried.

A pop of colour for a grey bathroom, with heavenly Soane Britain fabric for the blind.

A simple French chair from Feather and Black.

A bespoke scatter cushion made from Guy Goodfellow’s fabric collection, piped in luxurious velvet.

A lovely corner to sit and contemplate.

Increasingly I am being asked about sustainability and how I approach this important subject as an interior designer.  Over the next few weeks I will be addressing this on my blog, how it is impacting the design world and what measures we can all take to ensure we design responsibly and sustainably.

We finish two significant projects within the next few months which I look forward to sharing with you next time. If you have any enquiries I would love to hear from you, and please do follow me on social media for frequent updates.

All best wishes,
