LAST WEEK I spoke about a need for change, to declutter and move away from maximalist tendencies and bright colours to a more subdued, neutral palette. Well, I may be changing my mind again, after seeing this bedside table (above) with its pile of books, bright pink table lamp and goldenrod-hued headboard in English Interior Designer Luke Edward Hall’s Gloucestshire country home. The entire combination stopped me in my tracks with its messy perfection, and I was immediately drawn to colour and clutter again. Perhaps it won’t last and it’s a response to the fact that it snowed today, but there is definitely something cheerful about this design aesthetic. Pictured here are the artist and designer, and columnist’s homes in London and Gloucestshire, plus his studio in Kingham. Scroll through for a glimpse.
