Get inspired as you join Boulevard for a day inside this utterly unique Victorian Gothic style home belonging to Danielle Lagah, owner of The House of Leaves shop in Coombs. Delve into the minimal grandeur of the home where curiosity abounds with ornate vintage décor and details in every corner, handmade black lancet windows and vaulted ceilings. Fall in love this autumn with fashion that juxtaposes minimal design with luxurious detailing reminiscent of another era: feminine necklines, luscious soft knits, draping fabrics, strong silhouettes and plaids in neutral tones and textures with touches of burnt apricot throughout.
