Inside Adwoa Aboah’s Delightful London Townhouse | Open Door | Architectural Digest

  • čas přidán 4. 09. 2023
  • Today Architectural Digest is welcomed by British model, actor, and activist, Adwoa Aboah, to tour her charming London home. When the Top Boy star first viewed her Victorian-era home five years ago it was falling apart at the seams but despite this, she knew it was home. Together, architectural designer Lewis Kane and AD100 designer Beata Heuman, helped Adwoa transform the fixer-upper into a delightful space bursting with color, pattern, and profound character. Heartfelt mementos from Adwoa’s life fill the space, and with a garden landscaped by her aunt and her sister’s artwork hanging on the walls, these familial touches make her house feel like home. “Friends have said if they could imagine a house that described me, this would be it. I feel very at peace here. It is like my sanctuary.”

    You can tell she’s not putting on an act here. This is so raw and truthful and I like how she’s shows those sentimental elements, she takes pride in her style. It’s a shrine of beauty.

    A rare gem of gratitude, humility & authenticity reflected well in the home's design.

  • Moonbeeps
    Moonbeeps Před 24 dny +666

    British houses are SO MUCH more interesting to see than the US ones. We need more original and design spaces like hers!

    • James Kibirige
      James Kibirige Před 22 dny +49

      This is a Victorian terrace house so it has a Iot of heritage, style & history. Many new build homes here in the UK 🇬🇧 are bland, boring & uninspiring!

    • shannon hawkins
      shannon hawkins Před 20 dny +11

      Easy to find in Boston tbh. Reminds me of the layout of an average triple decker or Victorian in dorchester. But it makes sense since a lot of the older builds are designed with an English aesthetic.

    • G B
      G B Před 20 dny +5

      I think there are more of those types of homes on the East Coast. Although San Franisco also has a lot of stunning/quirky homes too. :)

    More of *this* AD!!! I love how unique and unconventional her space is and how she gives credit to her interior decorators.

    You can tell she has a deep love and appreciation for her family by the things she surrounds herself with. This was a highly enjoyable tour- the interiors ooze with personality and heart.

    One of the most refreshing episodes to watch. Genuine character, taste, and personality. And a moment for the vintage pink fur

    What a beautifully kind person I remember meeting her on a night out a few years ago and while I was trying to compliment her and her achievements she was so kind back, smiling, laughing and just complimenting me with the same energy, I felt so seen and appreciated by this supermodel who I was shy approaching let alone saying anything to. Wonderfully wholesome vibes and a beautiful space, colourful and vibrant just like them

  • Lana Orlova

      pretty down to earth when you live in a house like this and make fun of the AD styling crew, if you ask me!

      The funny thing is that I read your comment exactly when she was saying that she doesn't know how to cook. 😂 But other than that, it looks like a cozy and warm house.

    Love all the character in the house and the vintage items she's reused. And the fact that the fridge isn't perfectly clean but covered in souvenir magnets like a normal person! The garden is delightful too. It's not a sterile cavernous house like so many American ones

    CAROLE FREEMAN Před 26 dny +37

    Love her style Eclectic and not afraid to display items which mean something to her regardless of the objects. I love that she has a room full of memories. I also love the bright colours!

    This exactly what I invisioned her space, very eclectic, colorful, original yet slightly surrealist. I have followed their story and modeling career for a while, they are so quirky yet chill, gorgeous.

  • jj
    jj Před 11 dny +5

    I love how she kept a lot of the original features like stair bannisters, tile and ceiling decorations. A lot of people who don't care about history just tear them out for being 'dated'

    London-inspired design like this tends to be timeless and doesn't go out of style quickly. 🥰✨

    • MT MF
      MT MF Před 6 dny

      This is not "London-inspired" design. It is a very British, quirky style (like the Bloomsbury group) a lot of colours, mixed prints and collected/found objects.

    I love how unintentionally funny she is 😂. And this house is so her❤😊

      it's not unintentional! She's just got that British dry humour

      @A British humour is unintentional - it is generally innate.
