Emily Chalmers

As mentioned in my earlier post, this is Emily's Chalmer's home in a rented ex-industrial space in Shoreditch (London) featured in June 07 UK edition of Elle Decor.(Sorry that the quality of the scan doesn't really do the pictures justice). Because the space is rental, Emily had no inclination for major works, opting instead for quick fixes like zoning the space with curtains made from vintage fabrics. I love the way she makes use of the building's unique features such as pipes and wall recesses to form shelving units and hang decorative objects and pictures.

When asked about the source of her style, Emily quotes the title of Paul Smith book, "You can find inspiration in everything." Well said!
