“I didn’t want to compromise the Victorian nature of the house,” designer Orla Kiely says of her recent London renovation. Although the original fireplace was in good shape, the flooring needed to be replaced. Kiely didn’t want to use new wood, so she sourced the weathered ebony-colored boards from an architectural salvage yard. “I wanted the floors to really feel like they were part of the house,” she says. Kiely found the rug at Heal’s and the chandelier and art are vintage. Photo by Chris Tubbs. Photo by Chris Tubbs.
