Whilst looking through my twitter feed I came across a tweet “David Gandy’s west London Home” posted by the man himself of an interview he had done with the Telegraph. Well I was half expecting the usual clean lines, barely no furniture and little personality type bachelor pad, but I must admit I was pleasantly surprised. Gandy’s Fulham townhouse was cosy, quite charming and of course handsome.
Not only does his sophistication ooze from his home but the guy also loves finding a bargain and admits to sourcing many of his furniture from Gumtree and Ebay. Walls are painted with Farrow & Ball (apparently Elephant’s Breath is a favourite) in shades of off white and beige mixed with fabrics from Savile Row and Prince of Wales check an instant way to warm up elegant greys.
The successful male model’s home didn’t always look this grand. There was 7 months of refurbishment which involved digging eight feet down into the basement which made space for a bedroom, utility room and a snug/study which benefits from a sky light.
Create the Gandy look in your home with these inspired pieces.
