Get the Look: Mary Portas's Brilliant Living Room

One of my favorite shelter mags, LivingEtc, recently shot UK retail queen Mary Portas's London home. Her bright, enthusiastic take on color and her eclectic mixing of styles is refreshing. When LivingEtc asked her about her use of bright shades, she responded, "Neutrals just don't make my heart leap." A woman after my own heart!

To find out more about this home, as well as to see some similar pieces that I've rounded up for you,


Mary Portas's show, Mary Queen of Shops, a six-part series broadcast on BBC Two, is currently broadcasting its second season. The show focuses on struggling fashion boutiques that, with a little help from Portas, attempt to turn their businesses around.

Portas's innovation and think-outside-the-box mentality is obvious not only in this show, but in her house as well. I'm absolutely in love with her living room's graceful, teardrop-shaped amber chandelier, which reminds me of a very high-end version of this steal of the day. I found some similar products to those seen in Portas's living room, including that Noguchi lamp. If you're interested in checking out more of this beautiful, eclectic home, see the entire slideshow here.
