The Cereal ABODE In London

The Cereal ABODE in London is the work of interior designer, Tina Norden of Conran & Partners. They used a material palette of polished concrete, brass, marble and black joinery to reference the industrial history of this location in an understated and luxurious way. The interiors are warm and cosy with a minimal approach. I like the balance and verity of natural materials used. I think they certainly took advantage of that amazing view of the river. Read More

Modern Interiors By Redesign London

Redesign London has some nice interior projects. I am going to go ahead and say it, who made that lamp in the first picture and where can I get several, oh and do I need to take out a second mortgage to afford one. I am sure its not a common design and I will probably never have one but oh well. I like the Eames soft pad chairs around the dinning table, do business and eat at the same time. There is also a nice Scandinavian chair in picture three that I would like to know the maker, I better get searching. The eclectic approach happening in most of these spaces is working well.

Londesborough Road, London

Londesborough Road is the address of this unassuming apartment. The interiors have a Scandinavian eclectic feel. Obviously the main room with the fireplace is the show stopper here. The fireplace anchors the room with its black frame. I have always liked older architecture that has been treated in a monochromatic color scheme with modern furnishings found throughout. There are some nice bits of art found in these interiors. I have a hunch that the owner made the coffee table. There are some other photos shown of the artist making those concrete forms. Read More
