eclectic house tour

As usual we’ve got some great Sunday interior inspiration for you with this weeks Style Files. In case you missed the last one, we visited Siri and her American boho home – see it here. But this time, let us tour you around recently turned interior designer Fiona Duke’s home. Think Abigail Ahern meets Girl With The Green Sofa. She’s also just set up a new business called the Interior Design Collective – a network of specially selected freelance interior design creatives – which she co-runs with Karen Knox of Making Spaces who was one of our former-styles files interviewees! See Karen’s Style Files here. Currently Fiona now lives with her husband, two kids and Maggie the Havanese in her beautifully designed home. Enjoy her dark walls, eclectic decor and moody home design ideas.

What was the design process behind your home?

When we moved into this house nearly 2 years ago now, we knew it had amazing potential, beautiful ‘bones’ and so much we could work with. Our dream for this house is to completely redesign the layout and keep as many original features as we can. Whilst we save to fund the intended work, we have made small changes to the home in order to make it feel a little more like ‘ours’ by painting most of the rooms in quite bold colours, changing light fittings and general decoration.

What’s your inspiration?

My inspiration literally comes from everywhere! Whilst out shopping, walking the dog, social media, reading magazines…When we moved in I thought it would be a good opportunity to experiment with a few bold paint colours that I hadn’t used before which is always fun.

How would you define your style?

I think my own style is a mix of carefully sourced personal treasures and unique finds, often from different eras, grouped together to create a relaxed, somewhat eclectic look, that works with my family life.

 “It is only paint after all and if you do decide you don’t like it then you can always paint over it if necessary”

What’s your advice for someone wanting to create a home like yours?

Paint is a massive game changer and can alter a room instantly. By simply painting a room a new colour you can inject such a different vibe and feel into this space that it is completely worth being brave and trying  new colour. It is only paint after all and if you do decide you don’t like it then you can always paint over it if necessary.

What interests you moth about interior design & decorating?

I am a firm believer that great interior design really can change the way you feel about your home and ultimately make you happier. For most of us, day to day life can be extremely busy and hectic and we all love the idea of ‘coming home’. If your home is well designed and well decorated it creates an enormous sense of well being to those living there. By using quality materials and good decoration we can really connect to our space.
