Lucy Williams Home

What a treat it is when a bona fide style icon turns their hand to a house renovation – in this case stylist Lucy Williams, who has channeled her impeccable taste into her London fixer-upper. Sneak a peek at her collection of beautiful pieces by Beata Heuman, Alma Berrow, Faye Wei Wei and more. Stay tuned for her live Q&As, where she generously shares her years’ worth of research and insider tips, including her little black book of the makers she loves.

Luke Edward Hall

A Cecil Beaton for our time might be the best way to describe the impossibly stylish Luke Edward Hall – his eye for color and knack for a catchy motif is unmatched in the design world. He recently turned his hand to hotel design with the technicolor Hotel Les Deux Gares in Paris, and will soon launch his very own lifestyle brand, Chateau Orlando. If you want to harness his magic for your own home immediately, check out his highly collectible collaboration with Ginori featuring his signature illustrations of Greek gods and seashells.

Casa Balandra

Set in rural Mallorca, whitewashed guesthouse Casa Balandra hosts retreats and creative workshops (exciting new artists such as Joshua Perkin hole up here to paint) and has perfected that oh-so-elusive effortless, rustic style. Imagine white linen drapes, antique Turkish rugs and breakfast spread out on long wooden tables amidst the olive groves. Pure Balearic bliss.

Anissa Kermiche

Designer Anissa Kermiche is always ahead of the curve, with her voluptuous vases and shapely sculptures that prettify the homes of many a style icon. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is often spotted filming her beauty tutorials with one of Kermiche’s famous ‘Love Handles’ vases perched in the background, while Pernille Teisbaek fills her ‘Breast Friend’ vessel with fresh lilies. True to form, Kermiche’s own home is also a feast for the eyes. Head to her Instagram account for a peek at her effortlessly pared-back, Parisian-style pad – all neutrals and soft curves.

Follow him for a glimpse into his whimsical world, like his postmodern pad in London, as well as his popular wine-bar-slash-showroom, Lant Street, where he displays all his beautiful creations.

Bettina Ceramica

Inspired by childhood memories of summers spent sifting through seaside markets in Italy with her Ligurian mother, designer Natalie Sytner has brought the traditional Italian ceramics she grew up with over to the UK and launched Bettina Ceramica. They include delicate pastel-colored shrines, moustachioed head-shaped vases, sun-baked terracotta baskets – and the famous wavy-trimmed fruit bowl. Each piece is bound to bring some Mediterranean sunshine to the grayest of days.

Wondering People

This art platform has a unique curation of emerging artists. Spanning paintings to textiles, sculptures to photography, every piece on Wondering People is sure to be a future collectible. Indeed, founders Sophie Merrell and Isabella Rothman really know their art, attending degree shows and immersing themselves in the art community in their journey to discover the most exciting new talent. For those in need of some extraordinary art for their home, look no further.
