In homage to the passing of a great designer this week – Mr. David Collins – this beautiful living room in his London apartment…

To me, the window treatments make all the difference in this space, with their addition of pattern to this cloud of silvery-blue. And while I’m not usually an advocate for sparse living, when there are such beautiful pieces of art and decor to be seen, it somehow works to give each of them much more breathing room than you might otherwise.

This shot in particular made me admire the use of scale – the artwork being the icing on the cake.

Mr. Collins began as an architect but swiftly moved into interior design becoming one of the most well-known restaurant designers in the world, as well as some private spaces. His designs always seems so classically glamorous to me, and he will be missed.

For a beautifully written round-up of his work, visit the D Pages blog, as well as La Dolce Vita where I’m sure you’ll recognize many of his interiors, and a sweet memorial on The Telegraph.
