Steal This Look: An Artful Attic Bedroom in London

October 17, 2017

Recently, we asked London-based designer Cassandra Ellis how she puts a room together. Her answer? It’s like writing a story, “telling the tale of home,” she says. By building up interiors with antique furniture, handmade fabric, and a rotation of ephemera, Cassandra creates personalized spaces. The upstairs bedroom in her former house, a split-level apartment on the top floor of a converted Victorian school in London, is a perfect example. Here we list out the key elements and similar objects to re-create the look.
