“It’s a house that keeps changing and changing,” says Lara Bohinc of the ever-changing interior of her five-story Victorian townhouse, set on a wide, sloping, tree-lined street in a residential enclave in North London. Despite its understated exterior, if you look closely there are discreet hints of the decorative experimentation operating behind the brick and stucco facade. Pass the olive trees that flank the entrance, climb the pristine white steps and you will notice a small brass plaque on the astral blue front door bearing the words Lunar House.
The name alludes both to the Slovenian designer’s deep fascination with all things interplanetary and to the fact that under her care the home became a dynamic backdrop for her celestial-inspired furniture designs. “We’ve only lived here for a year and a half, but I’ve redecorated several times already,” says Bohinc, 50, who shares the space with her husband, Ben, their 13-year-old daughter, Coco, and a quartet of cats. A living room in the truest sense, these rooms are photogenic ready to showcase Bohinc’s bi-annual collections, changing with the same rhythmic certainty as the phases of the moon.
