Hello, world! As always, another Monday has arrived, bringing post-weekend blues and pre-week potential. At A Fancy Home, we like to focus on the pre-week potential by rounding up a few of our must-read interior design news stories of the past week.
So, without further ado, our interior design Monday morning bulletin:
Tom Daley’s Union Jack Themed Interior Design Goes Down Swimmingly
Ever wondered what Olympic diver Tom Daley’s London apartment looks like? Well, there’s no need to be killed by curiosity any longer (thanks to an exclusive chat with The Telegraph). The sneak peak feature article takes a full-frontal look at the interior design of the home he shares with Oscar-winning screenwriter husband Dustin Lance Black.
The Union Jack themed apartment is situated in Southwark, London and it used to be 19-century hops warehouse. Pravin Muthiah, a partner at Coupdeville Architects, and Chris Brandler, a property developer and founder of the bespoke furniture company Brandler London, redesigned the apartment.

Black & Milk Designs a Bachelor Pad in London’s Canaletto Tower
Renowned British interior design studio Black & Milk has redesigned an apartment in the famous Canaletto Tower, which is a luxury residential skyscraper designed by UNStudio on London’s City Road.
The studio striped the original rectangular island and replaced it with a triangle unit, while also relocating the cooking stations. Consequently, the overall finish meant the London apartment could now accommodate a formal dining area, a kitchen and a generous lounge area for hosting.

Best of Pinterest UK Interior Awards
Pinterest is the social network of dreams for every interior design enthusiast, so the interior awards are one to watch, and last Tuesday the winners were announced!
After evaluating all the winners, the judges selected a common string of themes that Pinterest browsers consistently rate, it seems the UK is currently loving: the seventies, bringing the outdoors indoors, shapes and sizes, eco-friendly DIY, an array of bold colours (steering clear of a theme) and minimalism.
We hope you enjoyed the bulletin this morning, stop back next week for another round-up of interior design news!
