When it comes to trends, the proliferation of social media has created a warp-speed saturation effect when determining what’s “in” and “out” amongst the masses. Therefore, we believe it is more important now than ever to develop your own style, one that is unique to your personal taste and tells the story of your life. Today’s tour is an excellent example of a one-of-a-kind, carefully curated home that will stand the test of time…
Stewart Manger is a New York-based interior designer with a pedigreed background that includes work with David Easton, Bunny Williams, David Kleinberg, and Sotheby’s London. Throughout his 20 year career, he has developed his eye though visits to historic houses, museums, and galleries throughout the Far East, India, Europe, and Africa Recently, he was commissioned by one of his longtime clients to transform their 19th-century townhouse in Kensington, London.
Classically Georgian in architecture, previous owners had overseen extensive renovations to the five-story, stucco-clad residence. Stewart carefully respected the townhouse’s history while mixing his clients’ significant art collection and passion for Art Deco style with antiques and traditional pieces throughout. The skillful combination of décor from various centuries and decades creates a timeless and bespoke home that cannot be replicated and truly showcases the lives of the homeowners.
