Inside Emilia Wickstead’s Elegant West London Home
With a fittingly fastidious approach to interiors, Auckland-born designer Emilia Wickstead, 38, brings her signature blend of proportion, colour and classicism to a family home in West London, finds British Vogue fashion features editor Laura Hawkins.
The statuesque, seamless and luxurious materiality of the Milanese apartments that Wickstead grew up in from age 14 (before a move to London to study fashion design and marketing at Central Saint Martins) inspired her four-month renovation. “We ripped everything out,” she explains.
The rooms of Wickstead’s home are an amalgam of rigorously considered, well-travelled pieces – a mix of finessed flea-market finds, collector’s items invested in piece by piece over time, and family heirlooms that reflect her peripatetic adolescence and her Brazilian husband Daniel’s heritage.
