J'adore...

...British stylist and interior designer Lucyina Moodie.  I first came across her work in connection with the Chelsea Garden Show, for which she styled several outdoor "rooms" and won awards. 

First place at Chelsea - a greenhouse becomes much more than a place to pot plants.




























She also does wonderful interiors. Lucyina started her career as a stylist with the BBC, and went freelance in 2000, adding interior designer to her list of accomplishments. Her work is very unfussy and makes the most of color. I love the deep color of these walls and how the curtains pick up the shade without being too uniform.


























A serene vanity space. Notice the variety of textures - intricate wallpaper, patterned floor, rough wood trim. Despite the less finished elements, the entire look is highly polished and feminine.




























I would do this entire room in my home. It's a little bit French, a little bit Hollywood, and a lot of white.  A variety of cream shades and some wisps of blue add visual variety and prevent a white-out. 
























Another great eclectic dining room.




























A "butler's pantry" of china, linen, and silver... suitcases, that is.

So serene. I'll take all, please.

I love those blue walls; that's the exact shade I want to go for in my new dining room. Any idea what paint color that is?

G - ditto. Is it possible to be angry in a Lucyina room?

Averill - I was actually wondering myself. I've tried to contact Lucyina to find out. I'll let you know what I find out!

Those of us who love a lot of white
must be ever so careful of those
White Outs!!

Lucyina knows how to create a perfect
balance -- plenty of texture.

Lovely post-Averill-check out Farrow & Ball Drawing Room Blue. The pigmentation and richness of F & B paint is extraordinary. Once you use it, you will never use any other paint.
