English Charm: Home Sweet Home

A terraced house in Chelsea imbued with charm and sophistication by Italian born Decorator: Paolo Moschino
Having worked with the owners on two of their previous houses, Paolo Moschino redesigned this terrace house in Chelsea to make the most of the compact space, while adding a touch of continental charm.

In the drawing room, a pair of antique sang-de-boeuf Chinese vases, now converted into lamps, stand on a nineteenth-century console table. 
The mahogany table was bought from Christie’s, then painted white.


The spacious, L-shape entrance hall leads to the drawing room.



In the drawing room, chairs covered in ‘Ripple Ridge Steel’ by Beacon Hill, flank the chimneypiece. 
The sofas, covered in ‘Cigaroʻ linen, are from Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam.



The study, with its collection of eighteenth-century prints, is papered in ‘Spalding Stripe Red’ from Ralph Lauren Home.

The enclosed garden provides an additional dining area.


A curved banquette, custom designed by Paolo, allows for flexible seating arrangements in the basement dining area. 
The prints depict Roman emperors and came from the owners’ previous home.


In the main bedroom, the sisal wallcovering is ‘Sable NC07’ from Clarence House. 
The bench is nineteenth-century Italian, while the mahogany dressing table is English, from the same period.
