In The Neighbourhood


If there’s ever been a house that I’ve wanted to visit, it’s been this one. Beautiful high ceilings, cornicing, period details and original wood floors, a space that is filled with light and evokes a sense of serenity where the focus is on creating a feeling of wellbeing.

The tranquil home, location house and interior design studio ‘House of Grey’ belongs to designer Louisa Grey. It was also home to ‘In The Neighbourhood’, a pop-up design exhibition curated by friends Louisa and Morgwn Rimel, that coincided with the London Design Festival in September. I hope to be able to share the Blue House by Morgwn in another post.

The space evoked a sense of calm and restful elegance, showcasing beautiful furniture pieces by Mass Productions, Noorstad and Frama, lighting by Henry Wilson and sculptural carved pieces by Edward Collinson. As well as art from Tycjan Knut and House of Grey, with textiles from Stitch by Stitch and Nest Design. In the Neighbourhood showcased the work of emerging local and international designers, artists and makers. It featured subtle and refined hues, textures and finishes. Curated with an emphasis on handcrafted, natural materials and artwork sourced from international designer makers.

Louisa says of her design studio “House of Grey prides itself on delivering substance as well as style. Their work focuses on enhancing wellbeing as well as aesthetics; incorporating locally-sourced, high-quality, natural and sustainable materials wherever possible; and designing spaces which complement people’s intuitive way of working and living, evolving with them as their needs change over time.”
