Where glam meets vintage: Daisy Lowe's chic London home
Tash Bradley, our Lead Color Specialist, caught up with model and food enthusiast, Daisy Lowe, to talk all things color, cooking, and home renovations. Earlier this year, we transformed her North London house into a cosy, modern-gothic-meets-vintage-inspired haven. In her color consultation with Tash, Daisy described how she wanted to add character and a splash of color to her home.
“When I bought this house, I thought to myself, right, I’m going to be an adult! So it was all off-white and muted...But then when it came to the color consultation, I realised—it has to be color”. She wanted each room to have its own unique design element whilst using hues that flow throughout. Enter Lick.
Daisy's kitchen decorated in Pink 02 paint
In Daisy’s words, the kitchen is “industrial country with a lot of pink”. Pink 02, to be specific. Its warm tones are instantly inviting and contrasted with dark, modern farmhouse style cabinets and white marble splashbacks and countertops. It really stands out. The renovation work turned the space into an open-plan kitchen-dining room. In fact, that’s what it’s all about: cooking and entertaining. “I love cooking”, says Daisy “it makes me so happy being able to fill everyone with all the love that I’ve put into it”.
The entire room surrounds a traditional aga on the kitchen island, allowing Daisy to cook whilst facing her guests (who can seat themselves on pink bar stools, what else?). Whilst Daisy uses open shelving to keep her go-to cookbooks within easy reach.

Daisy’s hallway decorated in Pink 04 paint with Pink 01 woodwork
Aside from the kitchen renovations, it was simply changing the colors throughout the house that achieved the biggest transformation. "House renovations are a huge commitment—and really costly. It's amazing how much you can change the look and mood of a room with just paint", explains Tash. In the hallway, that feels like a big, warm hug welcoming you home in the shade of Pink 04 walls and Pink 01 woodwork. "Being around pink just uplifts. You just feel cuddled", says Daisy. "I haven't done any building work in the rest of the house—it was just the colors—yet it feels so much warmer".
