A truly eclectic family home in Hammersmith

Not very far from where we live here in London you can find this cool 1860s house. It is in Hammersmith which is very close to the Thames, not far from the city centre, and very green.

Interior designer Beata Heuman lives here with her husband and two daughters and appreciates the same values as I do in our hood:  ‘I feel removed from the frantic bustle of the city, but excellent tube connections mean I can be in central London in no time at all – it really is the best of both worlds.’

Beata is originally from Sweden however her interior style is far away from the typical, clean, and minimal Scandi stuff. It is best described as eclectic and marriage of elegance and fun. As well as a good dose of surprise and so charmingly, quintessentially English!

Let’s have a look into her own home that represents her motto: Living comfortably, and easily.

But let’s talk about Beata a little too because she is quite a name here in London and the design scene. House & Garden magazine named her “designer of the year” for 2018 for starters. And her first big solo project was a pink townhouse that was features in numerous magazines around the globe. She also designed the Farm Girl Cafe, off Portobello Road, as well as the Feeding House cafe in Notting Hill.

But the best part is, yay, the children’s room! Her girls are playing and sleeping in this magical Bemelmans-inspired room. Bemelmans is the artist behind the Madeline books and the iconic Bemelmans Bar in New York. And it is the Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle Hotel in New York that inspired her the wonderful mural.

Delightful!
