Have you ever wondered why the Georgian period stands the test of time? It's has a lot to do with the fact that the #georgian architects designed according to the Golden Rectangle - where the ratio of the shorter side to the longer is 1:1.618. "Human beings are most pleased when things are in a proportion of 1 to 1.618." #russianresidentialproject #londonproperty #interiorarchitect #interiordesign #georgiannewbuild #internationaldesigner #heatherjenkinsoninteriors #thegoldenratio

Grabbing a quick 'drive-by' lunch whilst working on our Russian project - an extraordinary 21 room Georgian inspired family home, currently under construction. #londondesigner #architecture #interiordesign #interiorarchitecture #internationaldesigner #russianresidentialproject #georgiannewbuild

In another project, in Maida Vale, we started with a gorgeous piece of art, and have worked both the lighting and colour scheme around it. The orange accent, is not for the faint of heart. Fortunately, strong, lively colour palettes are an important aspect of the brief. #londonproperty #londoninteriordesigner #residentialdesign #heatherjenkinsoninteriors #art #palette #colourconsultancy #colourpalette #textiles #colournarratives #maidavaleinteriordesign #londondesigner

Working on yet another residential project in #wapping; this one has gorgeous views of the river Thames. During a client presentation, I find using light reflective fabrics, and strong contrasts, is an effective way of developing a complex and interesting visual narrative, in a large open plan living area. #projectkeepierwharf #heatherjenkinsoninteriors #greyoakflooring #interiordesign #furnishing #contrasts #furnishingdetails #lightreflective #colourconsultancy #textiles #residentialdesign #londoninteriordesigner #riversideview #riversideapartments #londonproperty

It's a working Bank Holiday Weekend for us, with three major deadlines, within the next 5 days. (And I'm quietly, and perhaps selfishly relieved the weather isn't amazing otherwise, I'd be struggling...) Whilst on the hunt for all things beautiful, I saw this gorgeous piece from @anthologylondon. I believe there's a 20% off offer today, if you're out shopping. Have a great weekend - let's hope the 🌤 pops out to say hello, soon... #residentialdesign #interiordesign #furnituredesign #inlaidbone #inlaidfurniture #morrocantilework #bankholidayweekend #brassfurniture #designresearch #productdesign #designproject #islingtoninteriordesigner #londoninteriordesigner #anthropologie

The interior layout stays true to both the architecture of the building, and detailing - both architectural and finishing. (This is no #libeskind creation, here, where the interior is, sometimes, an afterthought - see London Metropolitan University on Holloway Road). An architectural celebration of the hexagon. Wonderful design, so impressed. #interiorstyling #interiordetails #interiordesignerslondon #newbuild #architecture #anthologylondon #hexagonalwishlist #hexagon #londonproperty #apartmentliving #modernhome #islingtonlife #interiordesign

One of things I love about the overall design, are how big the doors are - both in height and width. This design decision, alone, makes these apartments seem absolutely huge. Masterfully done. Love it. I want one. #islingtoninteriors #islingtonlife #interiordesigners #hoxton #shoreditchpark #anthologylondon #interiordesign #interiorstyling #interiordetails #interiordesignerslondon #newbuild #architecture

Hackney Project | Master Bedroom: This was my second interior design project (over on Middleton Road, E8) and it was a joy to work on. The client and his girlfriend had vastly different tastes - the #andsotobed bed was on her life wish list for years, and so although the bed and the wallpaper are not an obvious pairing - I've since learned how to better negotiate interesting dynamics, I still rather like it. It's one of the most popular images of my work, on #Houzz. Which always makes me smile. It's funny what people see vs how we wish our work to be seen. #londondesigner #islingtondesigners #firstprojects #hackneydesigner #hackneyinteriordesigner #heatherjenkinsoninteriors #jocelynwarnerwallpaper #interiordesignersofinstagram #interiordesignersofinsta

Islington Project | Bespoke Kitchen. This property is in #islington, and although we didn't move any of the walls or change the flooring, the kitchen and two bathrooms were completely redesigned. The rest of interior was rejuvenated with use of powerful colour palettes, metallic printed wallpaper, selected furnishings, good lighting and thoughtfully curated art. Our Australian client - at the time of project, had travelled to over 100 counties and so there were many artefacts that he'd collected from around the world. I'll show more of his home, over the next few days. #heatherjenkinsoninteriors #kitchendesign #bespokekitchens #designideas #firstprojects #bluesplashback #islington #islingtondesigners #londondesigner #interiordesignersofinstagram #interiordesignersofinsta #hackneydesigner #Houzz #colourconsultant #contrast #interiordesign #interiordesigners #wouldkillforthathouse #hampstead

This is the very first project I worked on - from design to completion, back in 2007. To this day, it remains completely unchanged - I popped in to see my client (now a friend), last week before he set off on his big drive from Perth to Melbourne, and it looks exactly the same. And I still love it. Although, between you and me, what I wouldn't give to have another go; the things I would do differently, 10 years on... #londondesigner #interiordesignersofinsta #interiordesignersofinstagram #colourconsultation #heatherjenkinsoninteriors #kitchendesign #bespokekitchens #designideas #firstprojects

This is a project we worked on a few moths ago - a high end residential block, on the River Thames. Ah, the power of repetition... #interiorlighting #powerofrepetition #interiorarchitecture #interiordesign #colourconsultant #colourconsultation #interiordesignersofinstagram #interiordesignersofinsta #londondesigner #contrast
