Upstairs in Denmark Hill with Jo from Desire to Inspire

Last week, I shared with you the downstairs areas of the wonderful home of Jo from Desire to Inspire and what an absolute cracker it is!

The super stylish and eclectic vibes continue upstairs in Jo and Kelvin’s home where no nook is left undecorated!  Beautiful silk lanterns hang in the staircase and a cosy seat greets you at the top of the stairs.

The layout upstairs comprises of two large rooms, one of which Jo utilises as her light-filled study and the other is the boudoir.

In the study, Jo has created some beautiful artworks which take pride of place on the walls.  The room is white and bright with layers of warmth coming from books, rugs and carefully curated vignettes of much loved objects.  There are some gorgeous period features in this room, take a look at the ceilings and windows…

Over in the bedroom, the contrast is instantly noticeable by the presence of the dark walls.  This is a large space which Jo and Kelvin plan to add an ensuite to in the future.

Again, the space is full to the brim with beauty.  Gorgeous pieces of furniture and great artwork are combined with a mix of textiles.
