It’s to the ballet class we go this winter as the pink and cream shades synonymous with the dance discipline dominate the interiors landscape. All the charm of the pastime (on this side of the barre) is celebrated with elegant patterns, curved forms and nutty wood finishes. The palette takes its inspiration from a painting by Meredith Frampton, Woman Reclining, a portrait of model Marguerite Kelsey that encapsulates the cool allure of 1920s elegance – the original take on ‘quiet luxury’.
