Steal This Look: A Bright Blue Bedroom in a London Loft

April 4, 2017

We recently featured a renovated loft in a former upholstery factory on Hoxton Square in the East End of London. The project, by Mark Lewis Interior Design, has dozens of design details to steal. To start, the bright blue bedroom; here’s a list of sources for creating look (some straight from Mark Lewis).

For more on the project, see our post A “Modern Victorian” Loft in London by Mark Lewis.
