London - Notting Hill #townhouse #eclectic #Christine D'ornano #Sisley cosmetics



We recently came across the home of Christine d'Ornano, Sisley cosmetics executive, over at Elle Decor and have returned to look at it several times since then. While we are pretty sure we won't have the task of outfitting a large London home with drawing rooms and terraces anytime soon, we can appreciate her unabashed use of color and scale to create a sophisticated yet comfortable home.

Christina and her husband purchased their neglected townhouse about three years ago. Luckily, it had terrific bones...large windows, high ceilings and an expansive central hall. They worked together to create a cozy home full of contemporary art, family heirlooms and modern pieces. Her choice of prints and large accent pieces (the Serge Mouille lamps in the living room and vintage lamps from a car factory in the dining room are amazing!) take the home from something stuffy and proper to refined, yet relaxed.


Cores na casa da dama dos cosméticos

Na casa de Christine d’Ornano, executiva da marca de cosméticos Sisley e herdeira da família que criou a Lancôme, no charmoso bairro de Notting Hill, em Londres, tudo é permitido. Além das cores fortes, a decoração possui um forte sotaque francês, além de toques que são pura realeza, como as portas de veludo azul cravejadas de bronze na entrada da sala de jantar.
A inspiração gaulesa é herança genética da proprietária, parisiense criada com seus três irmãos em um apartamento com vista para o rio Sena, na capital da França. Diversos itens da casa revelam esse legado, trazendo um ar da belle époque em esculturas, guirlandas, porcelanas, franjas, bordados, bronzes, pratas e estofados.
