Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Is London-based Faye Toogood one of the most daring designers working today? Toogood (even her name is out of the ordinary) "disregards convention in favor of creating something altogether more brave, joyous, and impulsive," as she says. Toogood, a magazine editor turned stylist and designer (Ilse Crawford, another of our favorite designers, has a similar career trajectory), used a mix of unexpected elements in this Notting Hill house. To see more, go to Studio Toogood . Above: The living room is anchored by Toogood's Element Table .; throughout the house, Toogood designed rugs using The Rug Company's bespoke services. Above: Elements of style: a round Jacques Adnet-style mirror and a mounted zebra head anchor two distinct spaces. Above: A simple chair becomes fascinating when painted erratically in black and white Above: The living room features a mix of elements: a Prouvé chair (L), traditional leather armchairs (R), a yellow knit pouf from Christien Meindertsma . Above L: The kitchen features a herringbone tiled floor and a Tube Chandelier by Michael Anastassiades. Above R: Toogood's color palette for the project. Above: A dining banquette overlooking the garden. Above: The study features paneled walls, ceilings, and floors painted a uniform shade of creamy white. Above: Closet doors painted in shades of violet, ochre, and pale gray. Above: Herringbone tiles create a madcap aspect to the bath. Above: Even the entryway is slightly off-kilter (note the disparately sized house numbers).
