Here are some more out-takes from the Anna Spiro /Vogue Living story. I particularly love Anna's kitchen cluster wall which has a mixture of her son Harry's drawings and artworks she has collected over the years.
The little antique chest of drawers with a collection of vintage china is a clever way Anna has dressed up the basic white laminate kitchen and linked it to the decor in the rest of the house.
There are some photos we took of her shop, Black & Spiro which are full of ideas and inspiring decorating touches, also.
Traditional decorator furnishings such as pelmets, lampshades and throw cushions have all been given a contemporary take with bold colours and pattern.
The vibrant turquoise walls in Melanie's office area are beautifully offset by the orange-red lampshades - and Melanie's chartreuse dress!
Lastly, I was touched by Anna's blog post about how much she loved Vogue Living as a young girl. My first job in magazines as a recent design graduate was with Vogue Living in the late eighties and it set me on a path which I keep coming back to. Although I went on to be art director on fashion titles like Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Marie Claire, interiors is probably closer to my heart (even though I was a dedicated fashion victim for many years).
