Dream home alert… A few months back I had the chance to style this beauty of a space with DFS – remember the peek behind the scenes? I’m so happy to finally be able to share the final images for a few reasons.
1. I genuinely LOVE the pieces I chose. This wasn’t one of those things where you rock up and stick your name on something – every piece was carefully chosen and arranged and fits my personal aesthetic. After 5 years at the day job I have finally developed my interiors style and like to think it’s a mix of urban, vintage and industrial with a good dose of colour. So for me, this project was so much fun and I basically wanted to move in at the end.
2. Combining fashion and interiors was the ultimate fusion of my two loves. Inspired by the colours of the SS16 catwalks I saw in London, I took cobalt blue and mustard as the starting point for my moodboards and went from there. The DFS Bailey Velvet Maxi sofa is the most gorgeous deep, deep blue and made the perfect anchor for all that colour (check out the other colours on the DFS site, I am kinda in love with that teal green). Meanwhile the Oskar Club chair is the home version of your fav leather jacket – beat up and comfy, he only gets better with age. Between the two of them they’re more of less the interiors version of ripped up boyfriend jeans paired with a pretty Victoriana lace top.
3. I think it’s pretty amazing that DFS hand make every single sofa to order right here in the UK and is partnered with the British Heart Foundation so customers can have their old sofa collected for free and then sold in one of BHF’s Furniture & Electrical stores across the UK where every penny of profit raised goes on to fund the BHF’s pioneering heart disease research.
4. The whole project filled me a desire to get a move on with my own home which is a decade of ‘work in progress’. In fact, I just got my hands on a mustard mongolian cushion on my trip to the US. It begins…
