The Raw Revolution
“There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.” – Milton Glaser
There’s no doubt that the kitchen-diner is the heart of the Half Filled House, which means it is ever more important to ensure I create a cosy and inviting space encouraging guests to mingle.
Wallcovering is Beige Berry finish by KABE Copenhagen, a beautiful subdued pink. The imperfect plaster finish was applied to the walls and ceiling with my own artisan touch. It is carried over the ceiling, to create a zoned dining area with a unique look. The scheme is made up of mixed metals: Statement Tom Dixon Cog & Beat bronze pendant light fittings were chosen for their rugged elegance, warmth and perfectly detailed craftsmanship.
As a former Film student & Visual Merchandiser I am very interested in the influence of fashion & movies on Interior Design, and am as likely to take inspiration from music videos & films as I am interior magazines. The Dining room colour scheme is inspired by an obsession with the colours of Kanye West’s full Runaway video, comprising of a muted pastel palette.
Designed for memorable meals, crafted by nature & refined for living – My rustic dining table takes me through from brunch to supper. I invested in this versatile dining table in the hope of it lasting a long time. Grouped with Real Good chairs by Bludot & Aluminium powder coated white chairs to create a 6 seating dining area.
A lot of my furniture and accessories are either made bespoke or bought to customise, the idea is to try and create a look that works for the Half Filled House, and isn’t just bought wholesale off the peg. The brass lamp shelf is handcrafted by the very talented man of The Half Filled House, and is my favourite piece in our home.
A stylish mix of accessories with a crafted feel were selected for this scheme. Nature is a starting point for a lot of my inspiration, so it made sense to include fruit & flowers as styling elements. The red colour of the Apples really adds a pop to the muted scheme.
