I have been meaning to post a about their debut book, which came out late last year, since I fell for one of the homes featured in it. Maria and Adam designed this beautiful, warm flat with its own garden cabin for a client. Believe it or not, the location is a traffic-heavy part of north London.
The wall shelves on the left, also above, are old church pews seats set on cast iron brackets.
This look is achieved by the soft colours: the plaster-pink tiling (hand-made Zellige tiles from Morocco with natural colour inconsistency) and the faded apple wall, and also by the warmth in the furnishings' history. The battered, non-matching chairs look so welcoming, and isn't that giant wall-fixed lamp a great alternative to the more traditional kitchen table light fitting suspended from ceiling? I now want to move my kitchen table to a wall so I can shamelessly copy this.
A rug in a kitchen can be high-maintenance if you have a relationship with your hoover like I do (there's something very satisfying about sweeping a kitchen floor...). But I keep seeing really excellent kitchen carpets and wondering if I could live with one. The colours in this one zing up the otherwise faded palette and stop it from being insipid.
Regular readers may know I am partial to rather a lot of wood panelling. Did you see this post about this interior made entirely from wood that I am a bit obsessed with? Or this one with parquet flooring on the walls? I could go on...
