Lovely Home of Cotton & Milk Designer Justine Glanfield

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.

Cotton & Milk

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

Cotton & Milk

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.

Cotton & MilkLove the idea of using a former fireplace as a bookcase.

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!

    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!
