Last month, we got word that Kate Moss had purchased a new home in Highgate Hill London, which was built by English poet William Blake and later home to many important literary figures in the Romantic movement. While I had lots of fun poring over photos of her generous new accommodations, it's her personal decorating style that I'm really after. I hoped, and assumed, her other London property would soon go on the market, giving me a chance to see if Kate's interior design style is as fashionable as her wardrobe.
As it turns out, Kate has just listed her 5-bedroom, 4-and-2-half bath St. Johns Wood home for $11.3 million. The early Victorian house has been beautifully restored and has gorgeous natural light throughout. Some standout features include floor-to-ceiling folding doors, an expansive south-west-facing walled garden, a covered entrance vestibule, a gym, a raised roof terrace, music and alarm systems, and a three-car garage. But on to the decorating . . .
The living room has a mix of exotic and polished décor with parquet flooring, a leopard hide throw, a pair of rounded barrel chairs, an antiqued mirror wall, a Persian rug, brown faux-finished walls, a horn-based coffee table, and a carved Eastern armchair. In the dining room, Kate went for a mod, '70s look with a heart-shaped neon sconce, smoky transparent Saarinen Tulip-inspired dining chairs, a slick white table, a chrome floor lamp, and a white streetlight with oversize bulbs. The kitchen has a minimalist modern style and opens up to a rear terrace, which is a lovely place to entertain in the Summer.
Tell me what you think of Kate's style when you take the full tour!
