"Meanwhile, Back in London . . . "
Nikki Atkinson Ltd, London
Photographer Mel Yates
I'm spending a goodly part of a quiet Sunday afternoon working here at the office - catching up on paperwork and such after being away most of last week. But, man does not live by papers and invoices alone. So during a 'mental break' from the designer math, I'm flipping back through the February issue of House and Garden UK - and loving the lovely apartment of hotelier Henry Tonga in the stylish Chelsea district of London.
Perfectly balanced custom Bookcases in the living room - and - one of a set of Louis XIII-styled arm chairs
As always, the simple, clear colour story always appeals to my sense of calm. And the easy mix of antiques, classic details, and the clean modern lines of the furnishings.
(lantern alert. lol)
"I am probably a 'designer's dream,' because I know how they work.
Professionals need to be given some leeway."
