Rich, Warm and Vibrant: Natalie's home in London.

I have always maintained that artist homes are the most inspiring places to explore. Throw in a hint of India and I'm head-over-heels!! You've already met the artist, now she's graciously invited us in to her charming home! Drool on my lovelies, there's cozy corners and pretty vignettes and art. Oh the art. And the color.....

The entryway that had me at hello. Yup, I'll come in, very happily!

A corner in her bedroom.

A corner of her living room. Stacks of art above an unused fireplace.

New acquisitions: throw pillows and kilim from Turkey! I love how the colors play off of each other. Love the shade of the couch--it looks like they were meant to be together!

More art, lending warmth and color to the sideboard.

This gorgeous bookshelf with the adorable elephant bookend resides in her living room. I like how pretty books look when arranged by color!

This is her home-office. How adorable is that sunny yellow? LOVE this space!

The dining space.

Her eat-in kitchen. Painted a glorious shade of earthy red! I've heard it called Georgia clay, this shade of red, and I love the feeling it evokes (the name and the color!)

Another view of the kitchen.

I love the contrast of stark white against warm red! And the little hints of blue just complete it, don't you think?

The inspiration behind the still life with lentils. I love how pretty they look in those glass jars, all lined up. Who knew dal could be so gorgeous!

Her designs for tea towels. They're going to be gorgeous, and will make for perfect christmas gifts!

An unused fireplace. What a perfect place to store blank canvases! I love how sculptural they look!

I'm going to leave you with one last gem:

A still life composition with her grandmother's china. Sigh.

Natalie, thank you for welcoming us into your beautiful, warm, inviting home. I can only imagine how cozy it must feel to enter your house after facing the notorious London weather!!! We loved getting to know you and wish you all the best in your future endeavors!!
