Design’s new home
London’s Design Museum is a temple of style and innovation, showcasing design in all its forms from the early 20th century to today. Excitingly, the entire museum has recently moved into a brand-spanking new architect-designed building in west London, filled with beautiful, pared-back spaces which let the exhibits shine. Expect to be blown away by its exterior and interiors alike.
When it come to effortless, beautiful living spaces, the Danish win handsdown. Light, yet cosy; simple, yet far from boring. What’s the secret to their success, you ask? Well, aside from a love of neutrals, it’s a concept known as ‘Hygge’. There is no direct translation, but it’s most easily described as that cosy feeling you get being with family and friends. ‘Hygge: A celebration of simple pleasures’ explores this way of life and shows you how to make your own home a little more Danish.
British talent Tori Murphy set up her own textile label in 2010 after working for the likes of DKNY and Christian Dior. All woven and manufactured in the UK, her designs are simple, understated, and beautifully made. She’s seemingly a fan of a monochrome palette, too – think zig-zags, stripes, spots and checks in muted grey, ecru, black and blush pinks.
