Introducing 2 Lovely Gays (2LG)

2LG Studio, based in South East London and founded by the creative duo Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead, specializes in residential and commercial interiors, design consultancy, and styling. Collaborating with leading designers and showcasing rising talents is integral to their approach, creating spaces and pieces that truly inspire.

In every project they pour their hearts and souls into, they envision an environment for growth and happiness. Simplicity, elegance, functionality, and their signature use of color; the Perry Rise project is a stunning example of this design philosophy in action.

Perry Rise – The Design House

Nestled in Forest Hill, South East London, this Victorian detached house has undergone a whimsical transformation under the skilled hands of 2LG Studio. From the soft blush pink walls to the deep green carpets and scallop-edged doors, every feature within the Perry Rise residence speaks volumes about the meticulous attention to detail that defines 2LG's approach. This office-cum-residence serves as both a sanctuary and a workspace, embodying the duo's commitment to creating spaces that inspire and invigorate.

The Perry Rise project epitomizes a harmonious blend of timeless elegance and contemporary sophistication, where every design choice effortlessly transcends seasonal boundaries. Throughout the space, one is greeted by a symphony of design elements carefully curated to exude warmth and vitality, irrespective of the season.

The objective of the project was clear—to express the designers' true selves and showcase their unique design perspectives.

Disrupting Norms

2LG Studio loves to disrupt norms, and in the Perry Rise project, they aimed to disrupt the period setting of the architecture. This approach resonates with the idea of transitioning from winter to spring decor by breaking away from traditional design norms and embracing fresh, unconventional ideas.

Drawing Inspiration from Nature

The designers found inspiration in the surrounding garden, incorporating elements like the central apple tree, old English roses, and camellia tree into the interior color palette and floral motifs. This aligns perfectly with the concept of bringing the outdoors in, a key aspect of spring decor.

Bold Color Choices

While maintaining an overall elegant aesthetic, 2LG Studio introduced bold colors like sea green in the sitting room, creating a vibrant and refreshing atmosphere. This echoes the idea of incorporating pops of color to infuse cheer into your home, a hallmark of spring decor.
