Sneak Peek: Bowie Style

by Grace Bonney

the lounge has a blue, silver and white theme. the pictures reflect my love of italy and are mostly old architectural prints, the oval frame remains empty whilst i search for the perfect picture to go in there.


the fireplace is made from real plaster, its not original, but it follows the classical look. the fire is a fake electric one because we cant have a real one at the moment. next up is the design studio where the white theme continues, i love to have shelves full of books set against a white backround. the print on the wall is a real artwork by david bowie entitled ‘saucer’. its signed and dated by bowie and it feels so special knowing he has held it.


the kitchen is sunny in green and yellow with a country shaker style. i love this set of vintage canisters kept on the dresser.


finally, a look at the bedroom. the style here was infuenced by two great british designers cath kidston and laura ashley. i needed to pay homage to the era of the house but maintain my clean contemporary style. at the moment this is the only room in the house to use wallpaper.
