A Fun & Eclectic Approach To Decorating A London Home

This eclectic and cozy home belonging to Sisley executive Christine D'Ornano is located in London's Notting Hill and was recently featured in Elle Decor Spain.


I was really drawn to its fun mix of pattern and color. I wish I could be this brave in decorating my home.
Yellow chairs, a light blue tufted sofa and an vintage Italian light fixture.



Old tiles...



...a table rescued from who knows where paired with bistro chairs.


And bedroom walls upholstered with a fabric from Osborne & Little.

I've got one major room left in my house to decorate, the bonus room. I think I'm going to push myself to have a little extra fun with this last room!

  2. Eclectic rooms are my favorite. But I would think they would take the longest time to do. These kinds of rooms are usually developed & acquired over time...yes?
    Do you have that kind of time & patience?

  3. The bedroom image has been one of my favorites since it began circulating across the blogworld. Ecletic rooms like these seem to take time, but what results is a real 'curated' feel that you just can't match by buying things all at once at a big box store.

  4. Oh yes Janell, have fun with color. That room is a perfect candidate for color. Did you watch the Novagratz on HGTV last night, If you didn't see if you can find out when it airs again. Wait until you see the dose of color they gave a beach condo. A bit much, but I must say totally FUN!!! Happy Wednesday,Kathysue

  6. What a great dining table and kitchen...I have one room left in my house too. Nothing like a blank room to start with, so exciting!

  12. I think this is also known as the 'use what you love' decorating style.
    Oh no, if there's only one room left in your house, what will you do then?? :(

  19. Gorgeous rooms! I love the mix of colours in each space. And I love that these rooms seem like they belong to people, not in a showroom!
