Interior-designers-cum-reclamation-kingpins Retrouvius have unveiled some recent work, the remodelling of a Primrose Hill drawing room. It’s very of the moment and ticks a lot of my boxes: a grey and brown palette, lifted by rich yellow; lots of contrasting textures (sensual velvet and sparkly tiles – but a concrete seating area and matt floorboards); and statement pieces of furniture and lighting that personalise the space and make it feel less ‘designed’. The carefully restored mid-century chair with yellow button-back is especially lovely. Those sparkly tiles, incidentally, are by Emery and Cie, long one of the interior designers’ favourite stop-offs in Brussels and Paris, and now available in London at Retrouvius’ Kensal Green showroom.
