Even as a little kid, I was tickled by the color pink. Twenty-some-odd years later, I still find myself unable to resist “liking” an Instagram photo that features the bubbly hue. And the current trend of pairing pink with greenery — I have absolutely no resistance to that perfection. The second I saw the pink dining room in Gabriella Palumbo’s Notting Hill, London flat, I was eager to share it with you guys. I couldn’t get this peek together fast enough!
Finding such a one-of-a-kind, three-floor gem was challenging for Gabriella and her partner, Matt. Expensive and with little inventory, London’s real estate market can feel like a nonstop search. The second the two stepped inside here, however, all the struggles were worth it. Built in the 1940s and renovated in 2010, the home has so much space and light, it was the clear winner. The flat’s unique layout didn’t go unnoticed either. The bedrooms are on the bottom floor, living and dining areas are in the middle and the kitchen is on the top mezzanine. The bones were there, but it’s Matt and Gabriella’s pointed design vision that makes this home sing. Creating a practical and comfortable space that could function both as a place for entertaining and everyday living was paramount throughout their design process. Gabriella works as an interior and art stylist, so she is always filling the home with new finds while maintaining an exciting simplicity that I adore. Click through to see the dazzling flat for yourself. Enjoy! —Garrett
