Art has al­ways been im­por­tant in Lucy’s fam­ily – her mother Kerry-Anne is an artist and art critic, her fa­ther Ian an am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­pher in his spare time and, when young, she and her sis­ter Sara spent hours in art gal­leries and mu­se­ums. “One of the pre­vi­ous own­ers of this house was an artist and this was his stu­dio,” Lucy says. “So it’s got a his­tory of art and in­spi­ra­tion, plus the views are stun­ning – and I’ve just started draw­ing classes, so I wanted some­where to do art.”

Lucy and Michael cre­ated three ar­eas – the artist’s spot with easel, stool, artist mood board and view of the moun­tains, the boho couch area with pil­lows, rugs and view through the door to the val­ley, and the book­shelf with art in­spi­ra­tion and a ket­tle. “We wanted it to be a space that could be used and made messy, so guests would feel com­fort­able and at home.”
