A Colourful Penthouse in London's Soho

This is one of the latest projects by London-based Design Company, Studio Ashby.  Inspiration for the design of the penthouse was taken from the surrounding location and reflects the spirit of lively Soho and the modern art scene in London. It's so full of charm and personality we couldn't help but be drawn in.

Interest has been introduced by filling the space with art, books, and personal mementos and by layering objects, furniture and lighting. There's also a liberal use of Liberty fabrics which is very apt as the famous London department store is just around the corner. We love the use of their peacock fabric on the headboard for example which is a great way to create a focal point in the bedroom.

Continuing that thread of the avant-garde style of the arts and crafts movement,  modern art is hung throughout the penthouse. Pieces by Jake Curtis, Brent Baker and Dave Watts add to the eclectic and vibrant interior, creating a sense of a real home filled with beautiful, cherished objects.

Studio Ashby’s founder and creative director Sophie Ashby commented: “We very much took the ‘human approach’ to design to be above all else a home that is both warm, friendly, but full of charisma. We have taken inspiration from the essence of London, especially the buzzing colourful streetscape of Soho.”
