Blue Mood

I just had to share this beautiful Victorian four-story townhouse in south London with you today. In case you can’t tell, I love the colour blue. I always fall for blue and white interiors. This lovely townhouse has a blue theme throughout, so, of course, I fell in love with it.

With blues ranging from the palest whisper-soft blue to deep navy, and drifting into the aqua end of the spectrum, the varied cool hues in this home explore the many moods of the colour blue. Light-coloured floors balance out the darker hues and brighten up the entire home.

The navy walls in the dual-aspect lounge evoke an elegant, serene, and cozy mood. I love how the art arrangements on the walls, the plush velvet, a mix of patterns, not to mention that stunning fiddle leaf fig, create a lively atmosphere, contrasting beautifully with the deep, dramatic hue.

The study makes clever use of a sliver of space, illuminated by a floor-to-ceiling window and a skylight. What could have been a dark, barely-used hall has been transformed into a bright, perfectly edited, and useful space.

I love the light-filled dining room. Lovely French doors and a huge skylight bring so much natural light into the space. The family room sits at the opposite end of this space, as you can see. A fabulous blue and white pattern fabric designed by the late great Michael Szell really adds personality to these rooms, and ties them together well. More fiddle leaf figs bring the outside in. This is such a cheerful space. (Look closely in the mirror to see a young member of the family enjoying this room. You can just see the bow in her hair.)

Pale blue walls create a calm oasis in the master bedroom. This is my favourite room in the house. I just love the vintage pieces and the touches of kelly green and pink. That glamorous mirrored side table and old-fashioned floral cushion are so pretty.

Two little girls get to enjoy this adorable grey room with pops of colour and fun details like that triple light and sweet dollhouse. The pretty aqua tufted chair looks like the perfect spot to curl up with a favourite book.

The kitchen’s subtle blue-grey walls are complimented by brass fixtures and marble. This pared-down, stylish space seems like a pleasure to cook in.
