Lovely Home of Cotton & Milk Designer Justine Glanfield

May 22, 2012

I came across the darling home of Justine Glanfield last year – she is the founder of Cotton & Milk in England – and have been saving it for months in a file to eventually share on decor8. When I found photos of the home on the MILK website today I knew to couldn’t wait any longer so please see their site for a complete home tour featuring her wonderful 5 story home. My favorite glimpses are below.

How charming to see something that almost could be a linen tablecloth doubling as a curtain? Adore this…

That balcony looks so inviting and by the way, opening a door or a window in a room that you are photographing is a trick used in interior styling that I practice more and more in my own styling work. It makes a space feel more inviting and gives a casual touch to the photo, too. What do you think? Imagine the door closed and tell me if it would be the same photo….

I like the many different surfaces and walls in this home – painted, brick, different types of wood, stains, it’s lovely!

A gorgeous olive green vintage leather tufted sofa! A mouthful to say and an eyeful to behold.

Based in Brussels, this English designer lives there with her son and partner and has such a gorgeously personal decorating style that seems so considered and yet full of detail while remaining simple and understated. What a beautiful, delicate balance to acheive! Her dining room and son Oscar’s bedroom are my favorite spots and I adore everything that I see. So sweet and harmonious!

    Beautiful photographs of splendid rooms! I must post some photos of my little boy’s room. It is full of personality just like the ones here. Great to have you back Holly, we have been treated with posts today.

    In response to the question you posed about the open/closed door. What the open door in the photograph would speak to me of a space that is being inhabited, seen to be living in. Less staged and more lived in.

    I love the neutrals in the dining area – especially the white floor! It’s so laid-back and serene. If I had a space like that, I’d definitely be getting up 30 mins early to eat breakfast at home!
