London Shh... defines 'Museum Chic'

The Times declares London Shh... houses as the place to go for up-to-the-minute interior design inspiration

‘From this day forward’ says Kaya Burgess of The Times Bricks and Mortar Supplement, ‘The Phrase ‘Museum Chic’ will be added to our vocabulary’.  ‘Fashion may be back in the grip of the 1980’s’ he says ‘but interior design is looking back much further, to simpler, less lurid times.  Six homes that once housed London’s most eminent residents (London Shh...) are now...an inspiration for trend-spotters’. You heard it here first!

Time Out spills the beans on London Shh

 'Some of London's most fascinating museums are its historic houses - thanks to their famous former residents'  according to Time Out's article on London Shh this week (Time Out London, 11-17 March 2010).  London's critical guide to the arts, culture and going out in the capital features a double page spread on London Shh in their family friendly Around Town section.  Complete with stunning images of the interiors, collections, objects and famous residents, each of the houses is featured.   Natasha Polyviou sought out the hidden gems of London Shh, which she found variously 'secreted away in a courtyard' and 'preserved in an atmospheric little square'  and writes that each of the houses 'reveal reams about their one-time occupants and the impact they had on the capital'.
