Hugo Zandberg was born in Capetown, South Africa and has
garnered acclaim for his raw approach in mixing items and for
his sophisticated use of lighting. After moving to London in 1996,
he worked under David Champion and four years ago, set up his
company, Hubert Zandberg Interiors.
He recently completed the decoration of a house in Little Venice,
London and this post showcases this home. As a collector himself,
Zandberg has quite a way of mixing and blending collections and
various items together.
The gorgeous bedroom above is a great example of what Zandberg
considers to be the perfect paint color for artwork. "It's grey taupe
with an aubergine bias, which is much mores suited for putting art
onto than white, for instance. The colour also absorbs more light, so
an image is further pronounced," he explains.
Judging from the bedroom above, I'm inclined to agree with the him.
Zandberg also has a philosphy which describes his raw approach.
"There is so much out there that it can be quite overwhelming. I
believe that one should snap up art and furniture, as and when one
comes across them, without necessarily having a position for any piece
in mind. You can find a place for them later."
Just look at the rich mix of pillows and textures in the bedroom

furniture and art for the dining area.
A small conservatory off of the dining room
that serves as a great place to lounge. Zandberg
takes many different kinds of objects and mixes
them beautifully here.
Unfortunately, I was unable to locate a website
for Zandberg but his offices are in Nottinghill
I hope you enjoyed the house as much as I did.
