Soho Farm House
For a while now we have been dying to visit Soho Farm House. Not only for it’s clever take on the upmarket glamping experience but also for the truly inspiring interiors designed by their in house team and architect Michaelis Boyd.
We at RHI love the rustic look and Soho Farmhouse hasn’t been afraid to go all out on this, pushing the style we have already been treated to at Babington House and Electric House.
Think one type of timber on another type of timber on another timber and then throw in some floral fabrics and vintage pieces.
One of the most interesting design details that we noticed was a kilim rug on top of a chunky, woven, water hyacinth rug. The effect was a good 15-inch boarder around the edge. Layers of soft furnishings help to create a cosy eclectic interior.
Velvets have to be one of our favourite fabrics to use, particularly in a similar dark sage green as shown here. In order to overcome the impracticality of velvet the designers have used a very durable Kilim on the seat for maintenance and the striking velvet on the arms and back. We also noticed that the two sausage cushions use exactly the same materials on the front and the back.
Antiques are a great way to add integrity and as well as mixing high street items from companies such as Pooky, West Elm and Oka. Some of our favourite online antique dealer platforms are Firstdibs, The Hoarde, Decorative Collective.
We are definitely looking forward to staying at Soho Farmhouse again soon!
