STYLING: Anthology Issue 13

Early last Autumn I enlisted the help of photographer Catherine Gratwicke (she did the photography for my book) to help me with a story I was styling forAnthology magazine’s Sartorial issue. We headed to South London to the home of Kelly Schofield, Visual Manager for Anthropologie London and her partner Taha Meziane. When I moved back to London in 2011 I met Kelly at the Regent’s St store to discuss the possibility of working for Anthro again (I decided to go freelance instead). Later, when I saw snapshots of her home I knew Anthology would be interested in a story.

With high ceilings and freshly painted white floorboards, it is a deliciously calm, uncluttered home, but still full of character. Kelly and her partner Taha both work in the creative/interiors industry, a fact that is evident in the considered way they’ve decorated their home. Except for the odd pop of coral, yellow, and grey, Kelly and Taha have stuck with a really nice black, white and natural palette. I wish I could be disciplined enough to stick to the black and white code, but I just can’t do it!

I particularly love what they did to the wall in their bedroom. It’s the sort of thing I used to do in my display days at Anthropologie. They roughly painted some muslin material onto the wall below the picture rail for a cool, raw effect. Not everyone’s taste perhaps, but you know I love a bit of imperfection and roughness to offset the prettiness in a room.

If you can, I highly recommend picking up a copy of Anthology for the full story. In the meantime, here are some of my favourites.
