A peek inside Heather's home
My extremely talented business partner, Heather Kane, has spent the last couple of years designing and renovating her London apartment.
Inspired by her love for mismatched eras and styles, the apartment is home to an array of antique and bespoke pieces from all over the world.
These photographs, taken by Billy Bolton

of Living Etc
We hope you like it!
Maddison and Sons built the kitchen cabinetry and all of the wardrobes and cabinetry throughout the house. I was keen for a panelled wall look, rather than a cabinet look. I would say that I designed them, with Red Deer, and James Maddison made it happen.

The house is very black and white, but after my last house that revolved around a velvet green sofa, I'm happy for the serenity that the muted colours bring. There's lots of coziness in the textures and mismatched eras and styles of pieces that keep it interesting for me. I spend a lot of time in this room.
I have been collecting religious iconography for years but the large oval frame is a recent buy from an antiques market in Lille, France

This room is actually my trouble spot. I expect it will have a few more renaissances before I settle in. all of the other spaces have an undone aspect to them, and this one is rather "perfect" for me at the moment, so I'm still finding the right way to incorporate a looser, more interesting vibe.
