Today’s post sees us on a whistle-stop tour of Vincent The House, the London home of Roxanne and Chris. With his mix of colourful and neutral schemes – using some of our favourite Farrow & Ball shades, we might add – Vincent is a masterclass in creating rooms that flow effortlessly from one to the other, all the while maintaining their own individual wow-factor.

Roxanne and Chris have gone bold in their bijou office space with an all-over Green Smoke look, featuring Estate Emulsion on the walls and Dead Flat on the woodwork and radiator for a beautifully chalky flat matt finish. Mirroring the green of the treetops visible from the window, this nature-inspired shade creates the feeling that the outdoors is coming in.
“It’s the perfect neutral backdrop for our bold mix of décor colours, textures and patterns,” says Roxanne of her Purbeck Stone living room walls – and we couldn’t agree more. Paired with a classic white ceiling and trim, this soft and stony neutral steps back to let the pair’s rich jewel-toned pieces and eclectic wall art sing, while also being a beautiful shade in its own right.
Affectionately nicknamed The Pink Penthouse, this cosy bedroom tucked away in Roxanne and Chris’ roof space ticks all the boxes. Sulking Room Pink feels soft in the ample morning light while taking on a moody and luxurious character at night. They’ve also used one of our favourite tricks: taking the same colour across the walls and woodwork for a low-contrast look.
Roxanne and Chris’ guest bedroom has been decked out in Old White, another neutral that aces its supporting role alongside richly coloured decorative accents. “I love the grey-green tone of Old White on the walls paired with neutral decor and pops of black and burgundy,” says Roxanne. “So calming.”
Roxanne and Chris’ dining room is a star example of a scheme that goes beyond just wall and trim colours. With a grounding of Purbeck Stone, which is continued from the adjoining living room, chairs painted in Off-Black and a stunning drinks cabinet in Duck Green steal the show, adding a touch of vintage luxury that’s perfect for an entertaining space like this one.
