"I'm hopelessly opinionated," says the designer Harriet Anstruther as she walks through the rooms of the mid-19th-century house in London that she shares with her husband, the photographer Henry Bourne, and her teenage daughter from a previous marriage. Indeed, this is not the home of someone who's wishy-washy on design and decorating. Anstruther — who has designed everything from scarves (two of which are in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum) to hotel rooms, and who consults for fashion and lifestyle companies, and for British institutions like the Design Museum — restored the elegant late-Georgian architecture of the house (which had been divided into three apartments) while making sure that the rooms weren’t slaves to it. Wherever you look, traditional is engaged in conversation with modern, old furniture and art with new, and bold colors with white walls.
