Thoughtful, careful touches, from the textured lined staircase, antique console, pendant lighting to prompt a forever upward gaze, bistro chairs in the dining room, walls painted with a touch of gloss, chevron floors throughout and a soaking tub set atop a slab of marble. Oh, and the terrace which beckons to be enjoyed whenever the rain ceases and an outdoor fireplace decorated with an indoor stone mantle. An abundance of inspiration to incorporate whether one lives in London or not.
Transforming the four walls we live in into our homes takes time. And while we may not be able, or want, to hire the help of a professional interior designer, just taking heart that it takes time to bring all of these items together should ease our minds. Currently, after nearly four years in my cottage, I am only now feeling as though my four walls are my home, and the transformation while seemingly small, has made an immediate difference regarding my depth of tranquility whenever I cross the threshold.
Nina Flohr’s flat decorated by Veere Grenney is certainly worth touring. I have pulled my favorite rooms, but there are more – her closet for one. Tour the entire home here.
