House Tour: Creative Director, Lovisa Silburn

We sat down with Creative Director, Lovisa Silburn to discover how she painted her busy family home in Kent with Farrow & Ball, from top to bottom, including the bathroom, kitchen and hall.

“I love experimenting and find that the rich colours act as an inspiration for the rest of the room.”

“We used Down Pipe on our kitchen cabinetry to bring out the marble tops and create a dramatic back drop for the brass cupboard handles. On the opposite wall, Calamine adds warmth to the recess and makes each piece of pottery pop.”

“Down in the living room, the dark brown of the wooden floor and our Danish sofas come to life against hushed Cornforth White walls.”

“We continued Calamine up into our bathroom and sourced Spanish tiles with pink detailing to complete the scheme.”

“There are so many wonderful shades to choose from, the only problem is picking one!”
