Prior to & After: A Soulless Home Gets the ‘More Is More’ Treatment

Côte de Folk creator Sophie Rowell moonlights as a campanologist. Let me conserve you from needing to Google the term and inform you now that a campanologist is one who calls church bells. It might look like an odd side gig for a style stylist-turned-interior designer (called a “Rising Star” by Home & & Garden U.K. in 2015), however one peek at her tasks and it makes good sense: Sophie makes houses sing.

Case in point: this house in a maisonette in Hackney, London, that Sophie created for her customer, Daniela Nardelli, and her pet, Tulip. “The flat, when she purchased it, had in fact been ‘done up’ however not to her taste– it was really medical and did not have soul,” she states (scroll to the bottom to see the “in the past”). So Sophie commenced including color, pattern, texture, and womanhood to the flat. “More is more. My preferred part of the procedure is developing plans and pattern play.”

Listed below, Sophie discusses how she made up a sweet and comfortable very first house for her customer.
