HEATHER JENKINSON | INTERIORS  London based interior designer, colour consultant. Lover of dogs, modernist architecture, quiet moments, mindful chatter...

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

The master bedroom in our Old Street project, is nearly ready to be professionally photographed. This project is one where I may do a 'before & after' post on my blog. The changes we've made have significantly improved the functionality of the rooms and by mirroring key walls, throughout, we've greatly enhanced the natural light available. I'm really pleased with the work we've done, here. #onsite #progressshot #projectmallow #masterbedroom #interiordesign #oldstreet #islington #heatherjenkinsoninteriors #wallpaper #mirroredwalls #interiordesignersofinstagram #interiordesignersofinsta

This wreath was so beautiful, I had to cycle back 'round to have a second/closer look. Hydrangeas in a winter wreath? YES! The only thing I might have added, would be a few sprigs of black berry foliage (can't recall botanical name?), for a little contrast. But that's being super picky. I love it. An inspired creation, on a mulberry painted front door. #christmaswreath #winterwreath #islington #georgianhouses #hydrangea

There's nothing quite like a Georgian London skyline, reflected in a low Winter's afternoon sun, to bring on the #christmas feels... P.S. they're selling beautiful, handmade crockery at Canvas Home at half price. Yes, 50% off everything! And there's some lovely pieces, some of which I bought, in multiples, because who doesn't love a well made bowl? #centrallondon #islington #christmasshopping #canvashome #ochrelighting #georgianlondon #windowreflection

Learned today that @canvashomestore and @ochreochre are sister companies. Which makes sense: beautifully #handmade products, with a little something special. Bought some #christmasgifts, here today. (Whilst Ralph was dropped off for a winter tidy up, haircut 🐶) #centrallondon #christmaswreath #ochrelighting #canvashome

The Christmas wreaths out on display, in Islington, are quite lovely... #islington #londondesigner #centrallondon #christmaswreath #gold #metallicwreath #numberfive
