Faye Toogood is arguably one of the most influential interior designers of our time. So when we noticed that her three-bedroom apartment in Hampshire was listed on The Modern House (the high-end design-oriented real estate company co-founded by her husband, Matt Gibberd), we knew we had to go get more information.
“I left London with my family two years ago to have my twin daughters and to be closer to my parents. The purchase of this apartment was a provisional decision before committing to buy a family home outside London, “says Faye about the 1,325 square foot house, currently listed £ 645,000, which she shares with Matt.
With much of their furniture, works of art and objects stored, it was almost necessary to opt for a minimalist aesthetic: “I knew we would only live here for a short period of time, so I wanted to make it easy , functional, and practical for raising three children in a small space. Minimalism suited this space, ”she says. “And I liked living with less.”
Describing her style as “evolutionary and not static”, Faye now intends to find “the house in which I want to live for a very long time. Not a project, but a long-term home for my family. “
We can’t wait to see the evolution of his style. In the meantime, she guides us through all the custom and clever touches of her apartment in Hampshire.
