House & Garden UK‘s Gabby Deeming’s long lease of her 18th century Bloomsbury flat inspired her to make it her own. Having lived in the space for six years, she knew its bones, she knew how she enjoyed living in it, and subsequently turn it into a sanctuary to slip into when she crossed the threshold each day.
I particularly love this reading corner seen above, complete with a ‘Poirot’ chair designed by Gabby herself for Arlo & Jacob’s House & Garden range. The Sika trolley is a nice companion to add height and soft lighting.
Speaking of the ‘Poirot’ chair, it’s named after, yep, Hercules Poirot, inspired by his portly, yet dapper silhouette and attire. I, for one, will be bookmarking this chair, as it is right up my alley, and the namesake doesn’t hurt either.
Now, back to Gabby Deeming’s home. Be sure to view a video of her giving the tour of the space. I think you will appreciate her use of space, as well as discover how the personal touches, with their stories that only the inhabitant knows, really do elevate the sanctuaries we call home.
The balance of blush walls and upholstry with natural furniture and jute rugs creates a nice balance that is welcoming and warm without being dark and cold. I could easily find returning home to such a space ideal during one of London’s many rainy days.
Learn more about the entire space, shared by Gabby herself in the detailed spotlight post.
