If you’re anything like me, you devoured Anatomy of a Scandal on Netflix. Based on the book by Sarah Vaughan, the psychological thriller tells the story Sophie (Sienna Miller), the attractive albeit long-suffering wife of James Whitehouse (Rupert Friend), an ambitious Tory MP in the British government. While the story itself is predictable, the stunning interiors, Sienna Miller’s impossibly chic style and my love of Rupert Friend, had me captivated.
If you’ve followed along for a while, you’ll know that I love the warmth and grounding wood adds to a space. In recent years the trend was towards washed out stains that always fell a bit flat for me. I’m excited to see a return to gorgeous medium-toned woods, that ooze depth and character. I’ve rounded up some of my favourite inspiration below.
While I’m not sure I’ll ever tire of a tone on tone, neutral space, I do like to inject colour into the spaces I’m working on from time to time. And when it comes to choosing a colour to add, I invariable end up leaning towards jewel tones. In particular, those that look a little weathered and worn. Like they’ve been around for a while. Nothing adds soul to a space like something with history and these weather jewel tones add a depth and richness that I can’t get enough of. I’ve rounded up some of the spaces and colours I’m most inspired by below.
