A Botanically Inclined Interior in London

Issue 21 · On the Lawn · May 21, 2012

Those of us who live in an urban environment (self included) are always looking for ways to bring a touch of the outdoors to our interiors. Perhaps that's why we fell for this Victorian house in London, with interiors featuring a subtle botanical motif.

Located in the heart of East London, in the neighborhood of London Fields, this project (spotted on Air Space) conjures up visions of a meadow of summer flowers. The common thread running throughout the interiors? The color green, in all its glory.
