So what with the Jubilee, Wimbles and Olympics fever recently sweeping the globe, I have to admit I’ve been having a few pangs for Blighty. Of course we miss our family and friends while we’re away, but I think this is the first time I’ve actually been a little homesick since I left London in 2009. But no fear, we’re heading home at the end of September for two of our besties’ wedding, and I am very much looking forward to getting my London on again and catching up on everything I’ve missed in the 9 months since we’ve been home. Can’t waaait!
So anyhoo…..I came across the West London-based Godrich Interiors recently and thought that I could do with a blast of the Brits today. They seem to effortlessly create schemes with a ‘quintessentially British flavour’ (their words, not mine) that look like they’ve come together over many years rather than as planned on a designer’s desk.
See for yourselves…
A mix of this and pic #4 are pretty much my dream kitchen – farmhouse sink alert:
Looooove these deep jewel-toned velvets – absolutely divine for a library or study in a dark wood.
Are these Tulip stools?! Does such a thing exist? Aha, yes it does – detest Tulip chairs, totally head over heels for Tulip stools…
Such a cute little girl’s room – what I would have done for a mini princess’ bed like this!
Another cracking kitchen, and can you get any more English than an aga?! I think not.
Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous:
They really have a knack for displaying collections of objets effectively – such a simple concept here but it really works well:
Serene and beautiful:
And these two living rooms are seriously le bee’s knees too:
Godrich Interiors also have quite a substantial portfolio of the interiors of properties in the Spanish and Italian islands. (If I’m honest, I think I probably miss these gems more than England – is that bad??!) Just take a look at these quirky yet relaxed beauts:
Can’t get enough of these beams!!
Or these lanterns…
Or these lanterns…
Or this view!!
GAAAAAH, I miss Europe!!
