Real Homes: Laura de Wilde

2nd March 2011
Today featuring on my Real Homes series is independent visual artist Laura de Wilde. Laura lives in Amsterdam with her husband and three children in a four storey house dated from 1905. Her living space is entirely built on intuition which is what I love about these interiors. All pieces have such a vast range with lots of furniture being family antiques, collectables or just bought impulsively for its aesthetic appeal. It’s probably the odd combination that makes this so attractive. Being an artist, Laura adopts a unique approach to her interiors, she says ‘there is no strategy in the decoration; the colour scheme is the same as in my paintings. If an object is beautiful it is welcome. It represents me and when I hear people feel very much at home here; in the end that is what I aim for’.
Laura produces the most beautiful artwork which is no surprise that a lot of her clients are interior designers. I love it how her house is filled with her work which is definietly one feature that makes this an incredibly unique home. It is a lovely cosy nest and I truly love what Laura has done here. A big thank you to Laura for opening her doors to ‘Arianna Interiors’.
What do you think? Don’t you just love how Laura has mixed it up so nicely here? I would love to know your views…

If you too would like to feature your home on Arianna Interiors then please get in contact with me here. I would love to hear from you, go on don’t be shy 🙂

    Love it. Love the black wall and the gilt mirror and love, love, love the gallery above the studio. A really nice post Ari. x

    The gallery area about the studio is my fav bit too, how cool is that?!

    I also like the way she uses neutral wall colours which act as a canvas to her own canvases.

    Argh! I love it all. The unpretentious styling shots, the use of black – those candlesticks… I am taking note of Laura because I recognise something in her eclectic/multi media style of working. Great find, Ari! xx
