From richly decorative to coolly pared-back, London homes are always unexpected. Behind the front doors of the city's ubiquitous terraces lies a wealth of design inspiration, while seemingly inhospitable buildings, whether converted gin distilleries, concrete new builds or former dairies, have been given fresh life thanks to the city's famously creative inhabitants.
Over the years, multiple influences have inspired the capital's design sensibility, including the relaxed elegance pioneered by Colefax and Fowler in the mid-twentieth century, the simple, softly modern rooms of Terence Conran a decade or two later and the restrained schemes of interior architects such as John Minshaw. More recently its interiors have favoured a return to a playful, loosened up look: blowsy florals, clashing colours, vibrant prints and plenty of frills and fringing.
London Interiors captures all of these influences and celebrates the cosmopolitan nature of a truly diverse city.
