MONOCHROME CHIC
A pared-back palette and vintage finds bring an individual look to Amy Morton’s Edwardian flat
ALI HEATH

Amy Morton’s first passion was textiles, which was followed by an instinctive obsession with antiques. ‘I’m drawn to neutrals – natural linens, vintage tickings and patterned florals in shades of black and white,’ says Amy. ‘I’m not quite sure where my love of monochrome came from but it doesn’t seem to be fading. I find it calming and it is the perfect foil for the well-made, utilitarian items from the past that I love.’

The north London flat she owns with her husband Will was very run-down when the couple first viewed it, but they could also see what great potential it had. ‘We rectified damp issues, ripped out the bathroom, replaced the fireplaces, doors, floorboards and skirting with reclaimed Edwardian finds, and swapped pink plastic chandeliers, purple walls and peach carpets for a simpler, calmer look,’ says Amy.
