Eileen Boyd

Eileen Boyd

I loved the new issue of Lonny.
It was packed full of fabulous colour and inspiration.

My absolute favourite feature was the home of designer Eileen Kathryn Boyd.
According the article, Boyd wanted each room to be like an art installation.
She used a plate of magenta, cerulean blue, and spring green.
Boyd says she achieved her look by using unexpected colours, furnishings, and artwork.
I simply adore the look of the home she has created.
{and PS, The Manuel Canovas wallpaper in the kitchen makes me crazy}
Here’s the spread.


After seeing her Boyd’s home in Lonny, I wanted to have a look at her portfolio.
I think her home definitely works to highlight her design sensibilities.
One can see the same use of bold colour and unexpected elements in her professional work.

I love Boyd’s use of fabulous pattern (hello La Fiorentina and Asuka wallpaper) and those blue velvet curtain panels are incredible- I’ve never seen anything like them.
I also adore her propensity towards saturated colour.
If you look at Pantone’s entire colour story for 2011, she is certainly right on trend.
A definite talent, Boyd is a designer with an approach I find very exciting.
Her spaces don’t seem overly styled but are dynamic and approachable.
Effortlessly stylish.

    Seriously, maybe in the dream house file. LOVE IT ALL. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I’m only 28 and shouldn’t already have homes like what I see online in magazines… 😉

    Ok, the third image from the bottom? With the purple desk chair? And the picture right below it? And you know, pretty much all the other rooms?

    Kind of amazing. Just sayin’.

    Also love the pantone colour story!

    I’ve never seen her rooms before and I’m very impressed! I saved a few for my files. This is just my style. Clean, bold, a little bit of vintage glam. Love it!
