So far this week, I’ve featured spaces that fit my definition of “boho chic”. For today’s “Fabulous Room”, we are heading in a different direction. This brilliant—and enormous living room designed by Peter Mikic who also happens to own the home, is full of the signature glamour that I love. What was once a dilapidated townhouse in Notting Hill has become modern, exuberant, and undeniably glamorous. “I wanted the house to look as though Claridge’s hotel had been transported to 1950s Milan,” Mikic explained to ELLE DECOR. The living room is particularly beautiful for its use of saturated blue and grey hues, beautiful blend of textures, as well as for the unique accessories and furniture throughout. I love that Mikic wasn’t afraid to mix metals—note the fabulous brass lamps and the nickel chairs in front of the sofa above.
As you’ve probably already noticed, the space is dotted with bold pieces of art as well as interesting shapes from the stunning chandelier to the cocktail tables. Notice the wall of windows is lined with antiqued mirrors as opposed to the grasscloth that covers the other walls. It’s special touches like this that can completely elevate a room—and it certainly doesn’t hurt to start off with great bones!
Do you like the glamour and grandeur of this room or do you prefer your interiors to be a bit more cozy?
