Flea Market Décor - - Great Finds -

a cus­tom-made head­board sports re­cessed shelv­ing and built-in wall lights. A pink satin bed­spread and vel­vet cush­ions cre­ate a lux­u­ri­ous feel, while the vin­tage trunk pro­vides stor­age space.

In the mas­ter bed­room, color­ful botan­i­cal prints from an art book hang on the wall, while a cus­tom head­board of­fers in­te­grated shelv­ing and lights in a sleek yet prac­ti­cal de­sign. Claire’s cre­ativ­ity has re­ally been let loose in the ex­tra­or­di­nary con­ser­va­tory, which dou­bles as a for­mal din­ing space and play­room. There black-and-white striped wall­pa­per gives the space an Alice in Won­der­land feel. It com­bines with an over­sized Eif­fel Tower sculp­ture and 1950s din­ing chairs, which have been given Claire’s tas­sel treat­ment. The chil­dren’s nurs­ery, ad­ja­cent to this room, is dec­o­rated in a com­bi­na­tion of mono­chrome tex­tiles, Lib­erty prints and so­phis­ti­cated shades of gray, cre­at­ing a play­ful but stylish room for the chil­dren. And what of that en­trance hall that they first fell in love with? Bob painstak­ingly painted a graphic geo­met­ric pat­tern on the back of the front door, while vin­tage cin­ema seats and star­burst mir­rors add to the the­atri­cal­ity of the space. “Bob and I have dif­fer­ent tastes, but be­tween his de­sign ethos and my eclec­tic busy style, we match very well,” says Claire. The unit­ing fac­tors in this quirky home are a pas­sion for color and pat­tern, and a unique tal­ent for mix­ing the two in win­ning com­bi­na­tions.
