Steal This Look: A Terracotta Dining Room in East London

October 11, 2022

Interior designer Lucy Currell of Studio Iro was looking for a healthy dose of color for her East London house. Modeled after the bold swatches of Mexican architect Luis Barragan and the considered decor of Jim Ede’s Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge, her vibrant living room places terracotta tones at center stage. Here is a profile of the key elements that make up the space.
