Duck Egg Blue Living Room

Duck Egg Blue Living Room

Henrietta Courtauld, one half of  The Land Gardeners, and the owner of this 1850s London terrace
house commissioned architect and designer Maria Speake of Retrouvius to decorate this duck egg blue
living room.

‘Both Henrietta and I love a bit of twinkle in a room,’
says Maria. Here this comes from a Seventies mirror that hangs
above the marble chimneypiece, and from the two eye-level cupboards
in the recesses, with removable glass fronts that open to reveal
pictures pinned to the fabric behind.

‘Henrietta has a terrific eye for objects and colour,’
says Maria, ‘and all the furniture was hers, so I just suggested we
upholster it in antique grain sacks and French linen sheets to tie
the room together.’ The pristine appearance of this white
upholstery speaks volumes about the forbearance of Arthur, the
family’s long-haired Jack Russell. Colour in the room comes from
the hand-dyed velvet cushions by Kirsten Hecktermann.
