Last night, I was reading an issue of The World of Interiors from earlier this year that pulled images from the magazines archives under a selection of different categories including living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, etc. It presented “the favorites” from over the years of course.
I couldn’t get over this gorgeous space from the late Isabella Blow‘s Belgravia apartment. The article, “The Stylist’s Salon” was a feature in the March 2009 issue from The World of Interiors. I was so grateful to find the images (shown here) had been scanned for a feature on (In)Decorous Taste.
I absolutely love the mix of modern and traditional – the neon with the balloon curtains, the crystal chandelier with the modern sculptures – it’s truly perfect. And, just the term “Conceptual Decoration” is one that makes you stop and think.
Her mix of colors, styles, and the eclecticism of the abode is assuredly inspiring and challenges the viewer. At first glance, it doesn’t seem to “go together,” but at the same time- it somehow perfectly mixes. It’s a uniquely positioned grandeur – perfectly executed.
And, the artwork? A lavish WOW to the artwork and to the illustrious legacy of Isabella Blow. (I adore all of the lavender, purples, and pinks by the way- so great)
* p.s. I love this old article from Rita Konig for T Magazine on Balloon Curtains found here.
