COLLECTED LUXURY IN NOTTING HILL

It’s an informed style can gracefully mix playful touches into the mix of a traditional London apartment in the cosmopolitan district of Notting Hill. This look is achieved beautifully in the London apartment of Colin Radcliffe, an experienced architectural and interior designer whose work is known for its sophistication. But for me, the sophistication is not necessarily in the luxury finishes or the custom detailing, it’s in the careful balance of color and texture, styles, and the personal sensibility of the spaces. Rich velvet, a plush deep blue rug, ornate gilt mirror and wall molding give the space a traditional edge, but the whimsical and contemporary shapes of the sofa, chairs, and coffee table invite you in and let your eye travel. Not to mention the fantastic palm statue in the corner – tropical and playful in a splendid cool-blue setting.

Fresh palette but same beautiful mix and interesting colors. Marble and leather combine for a traditional palette of textures, while the modern architecture and outside glimpse offer interesting twists to the space. What do you think – do you find Colin’s style sleek or too traditional?
