With the design world moving at an ever-increasing pace, it’s near impossible to buy into any trend which will last longer than a season. That’s what makes a view into Katharine Pooley’s newest project – a central London location commissioned by an “esteemed returning client” – such a treat. Described as a showcase of “modern luxe”, the home is a well-executed blend of classic cool scattered with a cocktail of this year’s most plush and lasting trends.
"With its unique finishes and plush touches, the home is undoubtedly classic Katharine Pooley"
The look is tailored yet comfortable, rich yet liveable. And whilst a masculine vibe might take precedence, the space is far from being unapproachable thanks to its luxurious layers and unique finishes of calcatta bluette marble and agate, plush velvet upholstery and inviting furniture arrangements. Combined, they speak of modern luxury exactly as planned and, equally impressive, the project achieves the ultimate interior designer goal – it is undoubtedly classic Katharine Pooley but by no means monotonous or predictable.
