Olya Thompson is a textile designer (and former dancer), which is very evident based on all the fabulous fabrics around the rooms and Charles is a photographer. They have four gorgeous children, too.
The townhouse itself is only 17' wide but seems much larger, don't you think?? This is the girls' nursery with a mural by Alexander Vinogradov and Vladimir Dubossarsky on the walls. This room is the scene of a recently finished "petal throwing party." Have you ever heard of anything so sweet?
In the article, Olya says she was inspired by Yasnaya Polyana, Leo Tolstoy's estate near Moscow, where the couple had their four-day wedding. I love how airy this room is but you are still grounded by the incredible textiles and furniture throughout.
The interiors seems to reflect the couple's passion for design, life, and history; it's really inspiring.
Olya's textile company (which she started with her partner Nathalie Farman-Farma) will launch at the end of this month. It's called Tissus Tartares--I cannot wait to see it.
This is two of the girls bedroom with vintage bed linens. It's so refreshing to see such a romantically inspired interior that doesn't look old or dated.
All the images are from Vogue but you really must read the article too to get a sense of the Thompsons. Is it because she's Russian? Is it because he's a photographer? Whatever "it" is, this couple has incredible gutsy style and amazing passion. What do you think?
