A Colorful London Townhouse

Tucked Under
Veere Grenney's sublime reimagination of his client's childhood home.

The October issue of Architectural Digest was chock full of inspiring interiors. The most compelling story, for us, was the townhouse designed by London-based designer Veere Grenney. If you haven’t already picked up his new book, we highly recommend it. It’s filled with interiors showcasing his classic-English-with-a-twist interiors from throughout his career. In this recently published house, Grenney took the childhood home of his client and renovated it top to bottom to suit the new needs of a glamorous young woman. Having always admired the quintessential English homes designed by Colefax & Fowler (for whom Grenney worked), the client had a strong point of view about the direction of the house. Filled with a generous dose of our favorite Bennison fabrics and a colorful library inspired by Renzo Mongiardino, this is IT!

There's nothing more glamorous than upholstered walls. The green velvet walls create a wonderful cocoon like effect in the living room.

Curtains like these, with a valence and moss fringe detail are found throughout the house.

Red and green invigorate this space, as do the lacquered walls, shiny leather and a happy print for the curtains.

This little nook is probably our favorite moment in this extraordinary house. Isn’t it always the case that the smallest room in a home often becomes your favorite?

While this painting most likely doesn’t live outdoors permanently, what an incredible photograph it makes!
