Inspired by Nature – Deirdre Dyson collaborates with Echlin

The latest turn-key residence by visionary design and development studio Echlin is Leverton House – located just moments from Kensington Palace and Gardens in Ossington Street, Notting Hill.

Set behind an attractive period façade this state of the art modern home is a nature-inspired sanctuary in the city.

The parkside location together with a light-filled internal courtyard featuring verdant living walls (a USP of all Echlin developments) floods the interior with light and formed the starting point for the interior design.

An integral part of the interior is a large hand knotted wool and silk version of Deirdre’s FALLING LEAVES carpet.

Deirdre has said of the project:

I was approached by [our Chelsea neighbours] Echlin to design a carpet especially for their new project, Leverton House.  Echlin’s concept was to bring the outside in.

The inspiration for this bespoke version of Falling Leaves came from standing under a Winter tree with branches bending downwards, above and around me…Echlin selected the colours to create airy lightness and to work perfectly with their nature-inspired concept.

Echlin has utilised British designed, natural and hand-crafted materials wherever possible in addition to the highest quality bespoke joinery and fittings throughout the property.

Other brands and designers featured include Tom O’Dell of Odells Studios, Hugh Miller Furniture Studio Haran, Johnston’s of Elgin, Bennett Silk and James Hare, Rachel Vosper and True Grace together with Walpole British Luxury members such as Richard Brendon, Ettinger and Nyetimber, and Brands of Tomorrow  The New Craftsmen with artwork by London based Italian artist Gabriele Cappelli.

Leverton House is currently listed for sale with Knight Frank, further details here

One Design six ways – Bespoke SEA MIST carpets for a New York apartment

Deirdre Dyson recently completed a large-scale residential project which required her to design of six carpets for the bedrooms of a Manhattan apartment by celebrated Interior Design Remi Tessier.

Deirdre selected one adaptable rug design, SEA MIST, and then created six different custom grades for each carpet with corresponding bars picked out in complimentary silks.  This allowed continuity between the rooms whilst creating unique versions of each.

The finished carpets add cohesion and flow to the otherwise understated rooms, where surface materials have been carefully selected in muted tones for their luxurious, light and tactile properties.

The carpets add a burst of individuality to each bedroom and dictate the colour palette. Surrounded by the refined natural surfaces (marble, oak) and of course glass – the incredible views speak for themselves and remain uninterrupted. Each room now has its own identity without dominating as per the original brief.

Essential texture is added by these hand knotted designs, graded in Tibetan wool with bars of pure silk.  Another layer of luxury on the uniform oak parquet floors with a sumptuous feel underfoot.

Each bespoke rug defines the room it’s in – the upholstery on an eye-catching and fun pair of Edra Fauteuil Rose chairs was colour matched exactly with a deep red selected from the grade in the ‘red’ version of SEA MIST.

Whereas in the main suite the blues of the grade are reflected in oversized velvet cushions and even the blue of the en-suite taps.

Finally, pieces from the owner’s extensive art collection were selected to compliment Deirdre’s colour choice for each bedroom.

The entire scheme works in harmony anchored by these specially created rug designs – a sense of comfort, restfulness and luxury in this already architecturally impressive home.
