Saltburn Interiors:
The Rise of Old Money Aesthetic

Talbot Residence - Luxury Edwardian Home

Thanks to the movie Saltburn, “Old Money” interiors are trending. Also called "quiet luxury," this type of design refers to the sartorial preferences typically associated with the old money set and interior designers love this quiet luxury look for its timeless elegance, simplicity, and neutral appeal. 

Award-winning studio, Black&Milk have recently been working on a variety of interiors that showcase this ‘'stealth wealth' style and their recent project unveil, Talbot Residence, is a clear example of how to channel this trend. 

An Edwardian home within Highgate, the project's narrative is one of the most interesting ones in their portfolio. 

Their main objective was to ensure that the Scottish family's personality was infused throughout the property and tailored towards their lifestyle, most notably allowing the new design to work cohesively with the existing canvas.


The introduction of 'His' and 'Her' lounges

The moody blue hues of the Gentleman lounge set as a perfect backdrop for evoking the grandeur of a cigar lounge, with more playful, expressive touches. On the other hand, the Ladies Lounge is a serene oasis that provides the perfect hang out for coffee dates and socials.

Country style kitchen

A bespoke kitchen, island, and hidden breakfast area designed by Black and Milk incorporate richer materials to add a layer of warmth to the family's open-plan dining area. To keep the design cohesive with the front of the house, traditional backsplash tiles were implemented to the modern design of the kitchen. An impressive golf leaf-based table anchors the centre of the dining area with a soft, napkin-like pendant sits a top, softening the overall look and feel.

A Cinema Room

Hidden away within the lounge area, sits a cinema room. The walls were draped and upholstered in Tartan fabric panelling to provide sound installation and pay heritage to the client's Scottish roots.
