Last week I went to see the design show house “The Holiday House London“. If you’re in London, or planning to go for Christmas shopping I highly recommend to go see this, as it’s only open for one more week (until December 10th). The Holiday House London consists in fact of two town houses in 59 & 61 Hamilton Terrace that are completely decorated by leading interior designers. The celebrated interior designers were each assigned one space to decorate in their own style. The result are two houses and more than 15 spaces that showcase design trends, new products and cutting edge art. The entrance fee is £ 20 and proceeds go to Breast Cancer research. I’m featuring a selection of the spaces that resonated most with me, however there is much more to see.
My favourite room in The Holiday House London is the De Gournay wallpaper room designed by Amelia Carter. I blogged about the De Gournay wallpaper before because it’s just so stunning. In this room it’s combined with bamboo and with chic furniture, creating a bohemian chic style.
I instantly fell in love with this powder room/toilet due to its gorgeous wall paper by Kit Miles Studio. The mirror with built in lighting is very much on trend and the marble finish makes this space one to linger in longer than needed. Designer: Hazel Collins
This bar station just screams Hollywood Regency. I adore the wallpaper. This is also designed by Hazel Collins.
Teenage Dream room
If I were a teenage girl this pink room would definitely be my dream room. Studio Suss did an amazing job in designing this space. Every detail was thought out carefully. Just splendid!
Another bedroom that caught my eye was the grey and silver room. Yet it wasn’t the bed that drew my attention but the console and the bathroom. Both are so my style! Designer: Studio QD with Nicky Haslam
Laura Hammett named this bedroom the ‘Aegean luxury retreat’ and I understand why. The blue and grey hues and the airy feel this space has really reminded me of the Aegean islands.
The Sun bedroom was another one of my favourites even though I’m ususally not a fan of yellow. It’s so stylish and boutique hotel style in my opinion. What really makes this space stand out is the lighting. The bulbs above the bed, next to the bed, as well as the black lamp with fringes are all unique and interesting to look at. The en suite bathroom is a dream. Creator of this room is Lily Froehlicher from The Invisible Collection with Pierre Gonalons & Vis-a-vis.
Unfortunately I forgot to jot down who created this gentleman’s home office. It is such a chic retreat with its dramatic touches.
The candy filled kitchen by Iggy Design is a dream with the pink velvet bar stools and the large island to cook up a storm.
The dining room, designed by Rachel Laxer is classic and elegant yet the striking lighting gives it a modern twist. The black and white photos give the space an old Hollywood glam atmosphere.
Shalini Misra created this master bedroom. I liked the colour scheme of plum, black, grey and white. My favourtie item in the room is the room screen/mirror.
Turner Pocock designed a bedroom that transported me to a seaside house or a lake house.
Fiona Barratt Interiors designed below living room. I loved the chaise longue with its flowing forms combined with two edgy accent tables. The art piece on the wall isn’t something I would choose myself but I do find it an interesting focal point in the space.
This was only a selection of the rooms in the two design show houses. There is much more to see, so do go if you have the time because it’s worth it! The Holiday House London is open Wed-Sun until December 10, 2017. Tickets can be bought online or at the door.
