In the Neighbourhood was one of the exhibitions from London Design festival I have come across several times online, and I thought it was worth to check out what this was about and who was behind.
The exhibition could be best described as a pop-up exhibition curated by friends and neighbours, Louisa Grey and Morgwn Rimel. Curated with an emphasis on handcrafted, natural materials and artwork sourced from international designer makers, the exhibition showcased the work of emerging local and international designers, artists and makers in two unique residential settings: Grey House, an elegant North London townhouse, and Blue House, an eclectic loft set in a converted Methodist congregation hall.
Grey House is the home that first caught my eye, featuring work by Frama, Mass Productions, Henry Wilson, Tycjan Knut, Natascha Madeiski, Nest Design, Noorstad, Edward Collinson, Stitch by Stitch, London House Rugs and House of Grey.
Louisa Grey is the founder and creator of House of Grey, a North London interior design studio and showroom. 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.
