From across the Pond - Caroline Paterson

Thrilled is how I felt when I came across the portfolio of London designer, Caroline Paterson. Named by House & Garden to their Top 100 decorators list, I find her work inspiring and the attention to detail amazing. The first picture makes me swoon - love the blue/green silk pillow and hand blown glass vase paired with the contemporary styling of the bureau and the traditional artwork.
Abstract art, its colors reinforced in the fabric choices, adds a bolt of energy to this traditional library.
What drew me into this photo is the lamp - amazing how one carefully selected piece can make a space. It very subtlety picks up on the fabric on the ottoman.
The bird sculpture and the abstract painting play off each other - although everything is stationary there's movement in this space.

A great reminder that a closet is all you need for a functional home office space.

For me, these narrow horizontal stripes are unexpected and add so much interest to this space.

The way she combines abstract with tradtional so seemlessly is a delight. Nothing appears out of place or random. Not to mention the designed look. Thanks for the introduction.

I just love the artwork in the first two photos. It really completes the rooms.

All the images are fabulous but the closet photo is a real inspiration. It is always so difficult figuring out where to place a desk and equipment in a teenagers room when space is limited and they need the floor space for other things.

Jenn said...

Great find. Very traditional with a little extra pop to it. You can really imagine people living in these rooms.

Her work has a very unique look. I think the word "unexpected" sums it up indeed. Some really unique pieces there, like the lamp you pointed out and the wonderful bird sculpture and those stripes. I love stand out elements that are fresh like this.
