The funky side of London

Today is my last day in London before heading back to snowy Sweden. I thought it was only fair to do a small nod to the Big Smoke in today's post as I've had such a great stay. These spaces have been designed by London based interior design firm Precious McBain and have a definite touch of funkiness. It's not my usual style but if a new year's not for challenging your minds and to spread your interior design wings what is?

Although I'm not sure I could go for an all out patterned wall like the one shown I could definitely live with the furry pouff, light grey marbled bathroom with pretty glass cabinet and of course those fantastic views of my favourite city in the world. Bye bye London, I'll be back soon :)

PS Thanks for all your wonderful tips yesterday on where to go for design in Helsinki - I can't wait to go now! Exciting to hear all your get-away plans too, so many places to visit, such little time....

  6. Great views indeed! I wouldn't mind sitting by the window or the simple yet gorgeous fireplace.

  7. Oh, what a view! Some bits are a little funky for me also, but that glass cabinet and the wooden rocker are really gorgeous.

  8. Oh nice! Even with all the changes, it still looks good mainly because of the lighting, those things really make scenery a lot better with the right circumstances. Anyway, I love all the combination of the elements on this one.
