Lucky us. Here we get to glimpse inside the Notting Hill abode of Charlie Casely-Hayford, one of the UK’s pre-eminent menswear designers. Heaps of art, pattern and personal artefacts make Charlie’s home a complete joy to linger over. Happy spying.

Making a mark

When moving in with girlfriend Sophie, Charlie brought loads of books and artwork including a prized sculpture, The Thinker

Contrasting minimalism

Charlie and Sophie went for a maximal look but balanced it out with furniture in neutral colours

Chilling out by the window

Escaping the studio is important these days, and Charlie likes to spend time on the living room sofa next to his aboriginal spirit sculptures
