ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Content -

The ‘New Pretty’ trend brings a softer and more feminine aes­thetic to the home – but the look is any­thing but sac­cha­rine. Think pow­dery pas­tel shades and bold flo­ral wall­pa­pers re­splen­dent with mo­tifs of na­ture and ex­otic Eastern land­scapes. In the beau­ti­ful Kens­ing­ton home of Han­nah Ce­cil Gur­ney – which she shares with her hus­band Ed and their baby son – song­birds chirrup in the bed­room, peacocks pose in the liv­ing room, and ele­phants pa­rade through the hall­way. Han­nah, with ad­vice from in­te­rior de­signer Tara Craig, has cre­ated a space that is exquisitely styled with vin­tage fur­ni­ture, an­tiques from across the globe, and colours that cre­ate an air of grandeur. The eye-catch­ing walls were the start­ing point for the decor, and fea­ture hand-painted wall­pa­pers from De Gour­nay, the fam­ily firm estab­lished by Han­nah’s fa­ther Claud over 30 years ago. de­gour­nay.com
