As part of the ‘Simply Magnificent: A Showcase of Homes’, the Ritz Carlton-Residences in Chicago invited designers from around the world to create an ultra-luxury apartment in their own distinctive style.
London-based interior designer Samantha Todhunter commissioned watercolour artist James Gordon to help bring the scheme for her Ritz Carlton-Residence to life. Starting her career at Vogue Living Australia, Todhunter worked in design for ten years before establishing her eponymous interior design company in 2005.
“The large silk and wool butterfly draws attention, which is just what I wanted”, says Todhunter.
“I try to balance traditional and classic, and then infuse it with little crazy pops of acid yellow, edamame green, and blues. I’m not a purist, a total modernist, but I love to mix it up”, she says.
