Rob Lowe does British Colonial

I do love that "British Colonial" look epitomised by India Hicks. So here are some pictures of another British Colonial inspired home. Which just so happens to be the home of American actor Rob Lowe and his family. His house is a little more "Out of Africa" inspired than India's tropical look. I have a thing for butler's trays. I have two cane ones in my home. The dog in the picture is actually Bill Clinton's dog Buddy, who's sadly now gone to doggy heaven.

Love this triple light fitting in the kitchen below

Love the black and white photos and the antique bits and bobs in this photo below - it is like a little still life artwork.

I loved their home when I first saw it.
It was featured in the states in Santa Barbara Magazine. I thought the ebony stain on the furniture was a great contrast with all of the white fabrics.
I'm always a big fan of mixing old and new pieces as well.
Thank you for posting these great images.

I love the bits of black in their home, especially the picture frames. Being a dog lover, I love the doggie on the coffee table and Buddy's portrait as well!

Hmmm, as a parent though, I can't help but wonder if those white armchairs are exactly 'kid friendly' or if it's the 'good room' that they never get to go into?

Love the mix of the old and new, with the touches of black. It is a beautiful home. Amanda x
