Olga Ashby has transformed a typical London apartment into a light-filled and artful retreat for a famous flood blogger from China. The building was originally built in 1820, and the renovation retained the grand proportions and elegant color palette of the period.
English artist Mark Quinn’s painting of the human eye is a focal point of the living room. The vintage-style coffee tables and side tables were purchased from Paris-based gallery R&Y Augosty. The rug is custom-made by Riviere.
Unexpectedly for a central London home, the living room was generous. The ceilings were more than four metres high and light was streaming in from the huge French windows.Olga Ashby | Ad Middle East
With its high ceilings and large French windows, the living room is flooded with light and the perfect canvas for Olga Ashby’s selection of contemporary and vintage pieces, including Achilles armchairs from Pool Studio and side tables from R&Y Augosty Gallery in Paris. Olga’s uncompromising vision ensured the 180-square-meter apartment looks thoughtful, unexciting and richly appointed, albeit with a refreshing lightness.
