LA style in London

I fell head over heels in love with with this London home by L.A. Designers Carole Katleman and Daniel Cuevas when I first saw it published in Belle magazine this time last year. Needless to say I was happily surprised to see it published again in Interiors, this time with photos of spaces not previously published. The bones of the house are grand and beautiful, but to me its the colour palette, the mix of furniture and the artwork that make this place truly breathtaking. Enjoy!

The stunning Drawing Room (maybe too much white for me, but I love the crispness of it) features custom furniture by the designers, the painting above the fireplace is by Ugo Rondinone, to the right is a piece by Christopher Wool.

A view of the Dining Room leading into theDrawing Room. The painting on the right hand side is also by Ugo Rondinone, the table is French Deco paired with neoclassical chairs.

The chaise at one end of the Drawing Room is by the designers, the painting is by Richard Prince.

A view of the opposite end of the Drawing Room. I love how fresh and crisp this room feels. The carpets are by Patterson, Flynn & Martin and the painting is by Bernard Frize.

Looking into the Library from the Entry. The chesterfield sofa is by Linley, the photographs above are by Marcelo Krasilcic. The chairs flanking the doorway are by Gio Ponti.

Looking into the Office from the Library (I am particularly in love with this room). The regency chair on the left is from JF Chen and the stool is 60's French. The painting over the fireplace in the office is by Maurizio Cattelan.

The Master Bedroom's Office has a Jacques Adnet desk and chair.

A view of the Master Bedroom looking towards the lady of the house's Dressing room. Seating on either side of the cabinet is custom by the designers.

And last, but definitely not least, this stunning room...which I can't find any specific information on. The walls appear to be leather-lined, which is paired beautifully with a gloss paint finish and metal fireplace. The colours are breathtaking and compliment the art perfectly.

The Gio Ponti chairs are the perfect art for the wall--anything more would mar their beauty. Thanks.

Dear Belle,

I adore your publication and wish fervently that you had a website, so that I may demonstrate my love by "featuring" many of your lovely interiors on my blog.

With all my heart,

If the Lamp Shade Fits

hm, hm, hm .... library without books? or do I misunderstand that? some people call a certain room "restroom" and want to go away very quickly ...

Beautiful home! I love the drawing room and the office/library. Thanks for sharing!

Suzy said...

Oh Raina, I hear ya!

And Gina, I guess you're right..I'm just using the terms used in the article..maybe there are books along the other wall we don't see?

It's the library, visible books or not, that does it for me. The whiteness is a bit polar for my taste and in London white can go very grey quickly but on a sunny day the place must be stunning.
