House Tour: Fairfield Home of Designer Amelia Johnson

Amelia Johnson hallway with burl wood bench

 

Of all the house tours we do, we think the ones of designer’s own homes might be our favorites. The pros have plenty of opportunity to see the best of the best of what’s out there, so we love seeing their ultimate decisions.

So we are super thrilled to share the Fairfield home of designer Amelia Johnson–and we promise it doesn’t disappoint!

 

Amelia Johnson living room with starburst mirror

 

A bold mix of neutrals, blues and pattern, pattern, and more pattern, this home is a sophisticated yet fun space perfect for family and entertaining for kids and grown-ups alike.

Quadrille’s Persepolis wallpaper adds style in droves to otherwise simple hallways.

 

Amelia Johnson playroom

 

This is the ultimate in playroom chic with practical, easy, usable storage for kids of every age.

And this homework area is way too cute–and an excellent use of space.

We are obsessed with this Schumacher fabric, which adds so much style.

 

Amelia Johnson bunkbeds

 

Bunkbeds are our perennial favorite for a little boy’s room, and we’re over the moon for this monogram! Such a special touch.

 

blue and white bedroom

 

This calming yet bright master bedroom might be our favorite space. These Serena & Lily X-Stools are amazing!

One of our favorite parts of this house is all the fun patterns and bold colors. There’s a real sense of continuity in this home, but it’s never, ever stuffy. This is a dream kids’ bedroom!

A Piers Bourke piece, purchased when Amelia Johnson and her husband were living in London, greets guests by the door. It’s the perfect bold focal point for this energetic and beautiful home. We couldn’t love it any more!

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We love seeing you here!

Of all our current obsessions, we think Saarinen tables might be one of our very favorites!

It’s no coincidence that we’re both trying to figure out some sort of table catastrophe that will necessitate replacing our breakfast room tables with Saarinens!
