“He’s into contemporary design with strong colours, and her taste is far more minimal and neutral.”

Not any interior designer would be able to tackle a tricky project brief like the one Suzy Hoodless received for her clients’ five-storey townhouse in Notting Hill, but then again not everyone is called Suzy Hoodless. Her clients, a couple with strong differing views (he likes contemporary design with strong colors, she likes minimal and neutral) had growing family needs, and a townhouse that needed a major overhaul.

Hoodless worked with architect Johnny Holland to transform the space into a refined family home that is both timeless and updated to today’s taste. The tension between the differing styles—bold, minimal, contemporary, neutral) is what makes the design successful. My favorite vignette: the last one with the freestanding tub, graphic tile, bold Madeline Weinrib ikat curtains and Philip Arctander sheepskin chair.”That chair was the first piece we sourced for the project, and those initial purchases tend to set the tone,” says Suzy.

    I love the house! There is so much lighting that makes it look so spacious. Combing the two tastes worked out perfectly. I used furnishr.com to design my home. They helped me with designing the rooms and delivered and set up everything for all one cost. Saved me some time and money and the overall headache of moving into a new home.
