EDWARD BULMER Interior designer and paint expert ‘As a child, we broke long car journeys up to Scotland with visits to historic houses and I became hooked on the architecture and the art early on,’ says Edward Bulmer. After university, a short ‘and rather disastrous’ spell in advertising was followed by working for the designer and picture restorer Alec Cobbe, which had Edward taking on the interior design of grand houses such as Harewood and Southill. He subsequently set up on his own, with his first project the redecoration of Althorp for Earl Spencer. From there, he launched his paint company, Edward Bulmer Natural Paints, which was born out of a frustration with the lack of eco-friendly paints in beautiful colours.

Bespectacled and foppish, Luke Edward Hall could have sprung from the pages of an Evelyn Waugh novel. It’s no surprise therefore that he is fascinated by the martini-fuelled glamour of the interwar years. The Bloomsbury Group is also a source of inspiration and, much like its members, Luke is something of a polymath; at 27 he has worked on interior-design projects, dealt antiques, illustrated a Burberry campaign and produced a range of fabrics and ceramics bedecked in whimsical Cocteau-esque drawings. He describes his style as ‘Graeco-Roman meets crumbling country house with a dash of Palm Springs’. Glance at his portfolio and this unruly list suddenly makes a lot more sense – handsome boys with aquiline profiles in Breton striped tops abound, as do Doric columns and men in black tie As…
