Today’s interior inspiration comes from “a true aesthete with a taste for imperfection”, the London townhouse of 88-year-old former fashion designer, Victoria Press. The house, which sits on one of London’s most historic streets, Cheyne Walk, is a five-story Queen Anne most famously known as the place where the novelist George Eliot very briefly lived and died in 1880. Press,whose décor sensibilities were self-taught, “educated herself by going to museums, reading design books, talking to antiques dealers and enrolling in art history classes.” This London townhouse is her masterpiece . . .
