Designer in Residence: Carolyn Quartermaine at home in Nice.

A British artist and designer whose style cannot be fully explained. Her home is pretty with a mix of whites,  acid brights and patterns. I stopped in my tracks when I first glimpsed her home in the pages of Vogue Living Australia. Also take in more of her exquisite french inspired style in pdf format at her website, carolynquartermaine.com.

Bedroom: A hand painted turquoise silk velvet throw with vintage french bed linens. Lime green cushions add contrast. The daisy shaped bedside tables are just divine.

Sitting Room with a 19th century chandelier that hails from the  antiques market in Nice.
The large canvas is one of the homeowner’s paintings.
