For The ‘Weird Girl’ Aesthetic…

Are you into Y2K? Is everything that Bella Hadid wears on your wishlist? Then design duo Jordan Cloroe and Russell Whitehead from 2LG Studio will be right up your street. “We call our design style ‘Joyful Minimalism’ this is because of our minimalist approach to design combined with our maximalist love of color and texture,” Jordan and Russell tell Hello! Fashion, “We take a bold approach when designing schemes for our clients, we will always push you outside of your comfort zone. If we don’t, then we aren’t doing our jobs.” Combining form, function and decorative joy in equal measure the couple, who founded their company in 2014 appeared as presenters on two series of the show Changing Rooms, for Channel 4 and have a Thames and Hudson book out titled ‘Making Living Lovely.’ Having just got back from the world’s biggest design fair in Milan they have identified several key movements for Summer 2023, “Natural vs space age, recycled materiality and restoration. A move away from upcycling towards crafts and artisanal restoration and embracing eclecticism and lived in spaces .”

“This year is all about avoiding trends and embracing ‘you,’ in terms of color we would always say go with something that you love. Ignore what everyone else is doing and go with your gut… We visited Milan design festival this year and saw lots of sandy yellows and earth tones mixed in with sci-fi silvers and metallics, anything goes.”

That makes you a ‘quiet luxury’ lover, in which case you will become obsessed with the aesthetic of Mayfair based studio Sixty3 London, helmed by Ginny Griffin and Charlotte Green.

“Our signature aesthetic always starts with the foundation of a muted and neutral palette which is then layered with lots of texture, exquisite lighting and specialist finishes to add interest and elevate the design,” Charlotte tells Hello! Fashion, “Our approach is to create classic, unique and timeless interiors with a contemporary edge.” Specializing in residential interiors for private clients and developers, the team creates interiors which deliver their signature style of elegant and timeless luxury. As for what’s going to be trending this summer, “Eco-toxic free paint is definitely trending right now,” says Charlotte, “Our favorite is Bauwerk’s limewash paint, giving us Tuscan summer house vibes. Remember to test out samples in different locations around your house and check them at different times of day as they can change quite dramatically in different light.”

“Seasonal flowers, lots of color and pattern wherever you can,” Rosanna explained, “Tablescapes are a good way to change the decor from winter to summer, this can really change the look of a room. Lampshades can change the light given off and in the summer, a fresher feel to a new season. Battery-powered lamps with fun shades for evenings and tablecloths, beautiful napkins, and flowers to complement and bring it all together.”
