Yellow pine and red gingham: mews decor from 1966

At Lurot Brand we’re used to seeing mews properties that exhibit the highest standards of contemporary design, so this article – showing a Sixties film company’s interior design for a trendy mews house – made us chuckle

The gallery of images, assembled by a fan of a well-known 1960s TV series, shows interior shots of a mews property that would no doubt have been considered bang on trend at the time. Note the yellow pine panelling, not-so-tastefully combined with red as a keynote colour for the stair carpet, chairs, sofa and shelf recess. We particularly loved the red gingham curtains in the kitchen (a curious choice for Steed, the man-about-town character who was supposed to live there) and the half-height faux stone wall that divides the kitchen from the dining room. How we’ve moved on since the days of Swinging Sixties London! Today’s mews interiors are light, bright spaces, cleverly fitted with space-saving storage. The net curtains are long gone and the kitchens and bathrooms boast sleek, contemporary finishes that our man Steed could only dream of. If you’d like to get a feel for what a modern mews house can offer, call us at Lurot Brand today.

The actual exterior location is Duchess Mews, near Broadcasting House on Portland Place, W1. You can see some present-day images of this locale.
