Swedish-born, London-based designer Martin Brudnizki, of Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, designed this home for designer Christine Vanderhurd, whose textiles brand’s vibrant patterns inspired the project. The Ruston Mews project began as a blank canvas that Brudnizki brought to life with bright prints and an eclectic mix of home furnishings.

Set in a mews building (typically a row of stables with carriage houses below and living quarters above), hence the name, the space was to house both a home and studio. The walls are kept white making for the perfect backdrop for the colorful textiles and artwork placed throughout. Partnering the white with bold elements makes for an exciting and inspiring space to both work and live.

I love the wall-to-wall shelving and how it showcases each object as an art piece without being pretentious.

Vanderhurd’s beautiful carpets are used throughout setting the tone of the color palettes and the look and feel of the home.

Instead of your typical banister, beads connected with wire are strung creating a cool visual element between the stairs and the room without blocking it off.

The stairwell walls become a photo gallery with some amazing photographs, including some portraits by Annie Leibovitz.
