Home Tour: Susan Collier’s Country Colourful
Photography by James Balston | Originally seen in BBC Homes & Antiques
You may notice one continued theme throughout all the spaces in this home… the beautiful textiles. It’s no surprise that this is the case as the home belonged to London-based textile designer, Susan Collier. Susan sadly passed away earlier this year, but several years ago her delightful home was photographed by James Balston, and I wanted to celebrate Susan’s excellent style here today. Her quirky home was decorated with numerous fabric patterns, from throws and cushions to table linens and curtains, all of which show how Collier’s home was a homage to her love of textiles. Her colour choices were confident and bold: sunny yellow in the living room through to pastel pink hues in the kitchen and bathroom. Meanwhile, a refreshing white palette in the formal living room was interspersed with weathered greens and dusky pinks in the rose pattern fabric. This really was a welcoming, unpretentious and charming home. What do you like about this colourful London home?
