I’m taking off in the wee hours for a two day work trip to London – but I’m always inspired how London homes (at least those featured in magazines) always seem to have such a nice mix of traditional and modern, incorporating cheery elements without being too serious. It might not always be 100% my style but I always seem to walk away with an idea or two. And as magazines are my guilty pleasure, I always stock up on British editions of home magazines for my train and plane ride back.
The below are from a feature last year in Elle Decor from Christine D’Ornano’s townhome in London – she heads up Sisley cosmetics so gorgoeous house AND gorgeous face.
