Topology Interiors set the mood

Athina from Topology InteriorsOur recent campaign, championed by Michelle Ogundehin, aims to readdress the meaning behind the term ‘luxury’, which we’ve long accepted as associated with exorbitant price tags. Michelle’s refreshed definition focusses on our need to curate our interior décor, becoming our own personal sanctuary and improving our wellbeing. In addition to sharing her insights, Michelle selected her Top 5 Artworks from our online marketplace.

Inspired by Michelle’s elegant selection, and wanting to visualise them in situ, we reached out to Topology Interiors – an award-winning interior design studio based in London. Founded in 2016 by Athina, the company’s ethos centres on showing great style doesn’t have to come at a huge cost, while providing impeccable online and in-person consultation. Who better to create three stunning mood boards to bring Michelle’s top picks to life? Read on for more…





Mood Board 01: Masculine + Earthy + Moody

The dark and moody tones displayed in Brussels by Anastasia Savinova and Winter Landscape by Clare Packer were the catalyst for creating an interior scheme that feels masculine and atmospheric. The teals and greys in the artwork pair beautifully with complimentary earthy colours - like rusts and creams - as you'll see from the soft furnishings chosen. We envisage this personal sanctuary as a cocooning bedroom to unwind in at the end of the day.

Mood Board 02: LA / Miami + Modernist + Feminine

The lilac, peach & pastel blue tones in Jo Hummel’s Hold and Mairi Timoney’s Dimensions were the inspiration for this mood board. The uplifting, feminine and somewhat whimsical vibe inspired us to create a collection of products that would pick up on this feeling and spread it throughout the room. We also wanted to emulate the modernist feel in both paintings, through the accessory choice. We did this by opting for a design focused sofa with a curved back and boucle fabric, as well as statement lighting and arched vases ­– all very on trend right now!

Mood Board 03: Contemporary + Natural + Luxe<

Possibly our favourite mood board of the set, this collection of products all sourced from high street brands such as MADE.COM, HM Home and Habitat pair perfectly with Philip Richardson’s Jam Jar of Water, which Michelle herself snapped up from Affordable Art Fair's collection. Here at Topology we thought the darker palette of the artwork lent itself to being paired with a complimentary range of natural tones to help lift the work and create a contemporary feel. Brightened by plants, cream toned accessories and pops of brass, it's a scheme we'd implement in our own homes in a heartbeat!
