ES Magazine, one of our favourite publications along with sister paper The Evening Standard (I’m still amazed that publications of this quality are free) is always a great source of interior design inspiration. In today’s edition commissioning interiors editor Dee Acharya takes a look at Sandra Rhodes Bermondsey apartment and not surprisingly, it is a riot of colour. Dee describes Dame Zandra’s style as “maximalist” as every surface is covered in collections of some sort from stones and crystals from the Atlas Mountains to Carol McNicol ceramics. The walls are citrus and the Amtico venial flooring is is hot-pink.
In the article Dee has provided a guide to how to “Rhodes your room” and has selected two of our paint colours to achieve the effect: Yellow Kiss by RA by the Royal Academy of Arts and Peony from Liberty Art Fabrics paint collection.She also selects a Zable side table from Made.com, a multi coloured Raj Tent Cushion from the rajtentclub.com and the De Beauvoir room screen from, houseofhackney.com .
Dame Zandra, a student of the Royal College of Art says her design aesthetic is very influenced by the techniques and colours of Asian batik printing and this is carried through into her home with the exterior paint colour best described as Jaipur pink. She returns to London Fashion Week with a new collection that is inspired by her fascination with Asion handicrafts.
