Sunday Style: Fruzsina Keehn's London Flat
I truly believe that Sundays were made for spending all day in bed, but if this were my bedroom, I'm not sure I'd ever venture outside. It belongs to London-based jewellery designer Fruzsina Keehn, who collaborated with interior designer Alex Papachristidis to create this dreamy space (and the rest of her stunning flat). I love everything about it: the fabulous chandelier, the cloud-like bed, all that natural light flooding in, and most of all, the soft grey tones mixed with glam gold accents. Grey and gold work incredibly well together, especially as a winter colour combo, yet it's not one you see all the time. Totally refreshing, don't you think?
Keehn's living room is elegant and refined without being stuffy. Ideally, I'd like to see a few pops of bright colour in here — once you take away those gorgeous flowers, the neutral colour scheme becomes a little bland for my taste — but the room is calming and beautiful nonetheless.
And check out those amazing windows! Okay, so maybe I'd have to divide my time equally between the perfect bedroom and the near-perfect living room. I suppose I could manage that.
How sweet is the kitchen's dining nook? The unexpected use of boldly patterned wallpaper here is a brilliant touch. I love that it doesn't scream "kitchen" at first glance — it looks more like a cozy little café or tea room.
This is the flat's entryway, which means that Keehn is greeted by a striking 19th-century Venetian glass chandelier and a slice of her impressive art collection each time she walks through the door. Rough life.
I'm not normally a fan of beiges and browns, but these sexy purple lamps work so well against the deep taupe walls that I'm willing to make an exception in this case. Very generous of me, I know.
Now it's your turn to share: what's your idea of the perfect Sunday space?
