Faye Toogood's Islington Home


In November 2013, the New York Times Style Magazine featured an article titled, The Well-Composed Life of Faye Toogood. The feature showcased Toogood's late-Georgian London residence.  The beautiful. calming interiors grabbed my eye and I wanted to share them with you this Monday morning.

Faye started her design life working at World of Interiors before founding Studio Toogood in 2008. Today she designs her own furniture, interiors, retail spaces, installations and visual materials for brands such as Alexander McQueen, Comme des Garçons and Tom Dixon.

She has described her style as “the combination of the unexpected and the theatrical with something tactile or handmade, even painterly.” 

I featured this bathroom in my post last year about Moroccan zellige tiles. Not only is the colour glorious but the fish scale tile adds an interesting textural element to the space.

Both the outside chairs and concrete bowl are designed by Faye. 

I'm obsessing about both the wall sconces and coffee table.
