case study

Stepping off a busy street into a quiet museum or art gallery instantly calms the mind. The effect is not lost on All & Nxthing Interiors, which channelled the rarefied atmosphere of an art gallery for the owner of this home. ‘She is an avid art collector so we took the idea of a calm space that would be almost gallery-like in appearance and allow her favourite pieces to shine,’ says founder Stephen Nash. Previously a dining room at the front of the house with a small kitchen at the back, the project began by merging the two. ‘This created a rather awkward but much bigger and more sociable L-shaped room,’ says Stephen. The atmosphere may be tranquil, but this is no boring blank canvas. The owner’s brief called for something…

colour insight

In a great colour combination, the colours don’t just work together, they speak to each other. For example, khaki with red is a winning pairing for me. Brown and blue also work effortlessly as a team. Together with my Colville co-founder Molly Molloy (former design director at Marni), I’m always looking for ways to create interesting colour combinations.

behind the design: house of hackney’s palmeral print

My husband Javvy and I launched House of Hackney in 2011 on a bit of a whim – after ten years of minimalism and austerity we didn’t want to be in a white box anymore and couldn’t find what we wanted to decorate with that surrounded us with colour and a sense of nostalgia. It was the era when Ikea was having a big moment with its identikits and at the other end were the luxury fabrics and wallpapers at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour, leaving a gap for us. So we left our jobs – I was in fashion buying and Javvy was in product design – and started this crazy ride. As a couple, I knew we’d make a good professional team, although we needed to put a few boundaries…
