i know the spring 2014 london fashion shows have already passed, but if i was in london i wouldn’t want to be on the front row, i’d want to be sitting in Veere Grenney’s new townhouse. actually i’d want to be sitting in his olive green library!

i love veere’s work and i have become friendly with his office- timeless design and nice people! i was beyond ecstatic when i heard his new place had just been photographed by simon upton for the new world of interiors, and of course it got the cover!

i love everything about it especially how veere and his partner david oliver, creative director of paint and paper library, connected everything- love how they used the same brown and white damask fabric in the dining room and adjacent sitting room, makes the spaces feel bigger and unified. absolute dream about the olive green library! love the contrast of the dark walls with the lighter furniture, and the colefax and fowler ‘boxwood’ fabric on the arm chair is divine!

then there are the hits of yellow throughout the house, the cresendo being the yellow in the master on the bed’s canopy hanging- i guess that’s why it made the cover!

can’t get enough of veere, love the new town house, also, it’s fun to see how designers translate new spaces, and to see a few of the things from the old space find new homes. everything about the house is a delight- A Divine delight! enjoy!
