Luke Edward shows his Cotswold cottage

What do you think? Would you ditch London for Cotswold?

He’s gonna murder the boyfriend.

I hope the boyfriend gets out before this jizz haired Mary kills him!

Looks super comfy but as usual on these “at home with the homo”, TOO MUCH STUFF! He had the ottoman custom made with the arrow embroidery he absolutely loves yet covers it with books. Seems like a very dreary place for two youngish gays to live. Grindr?

I like it, lots of colours, and not too sparse. Love the grotto chair, that is so cool! It looks comfortable and cosy, I can see why they moved there in preference to London. He's kinda cute too, although the socks with sandals is a big hell no

I wonder if he knows Nicholas Fairford, who is from the Cotswolds, Luke also mentioned an artist friend up in Scotland, it seems not unlikely their paths have crossed at some stage

Gay British design queen. Lots of “we” - clearly loves living the domestic couple life. Living his dream I guess - good for him.

I kind of like it. Very cozy. Too many books piled on all those surfaces.

I have the same Italian maps they have in their sitting room. I got them at a rummage sale.

Then Agatha Raisin can investigate the murder. "Agatha Raisin and the Case of the Jizz-Haired Murder."

His boyfriend is 70 yrs old.

The hair, the sweater, the yellow trousers, the socks with slide sandals, the whippet. Would be punchable if he wasn't so laughable. Uber rich Mommy & Daddy funding this clown? Unless he has a cock hanging to his cankles, or some secret sexual trick. Cotswolds ain't cheap. Where's the squids coming from?

R10 the guy that appears at about 20 seconds into the video? (He's named Duncan ) Looks bloody good for 70, I'd say more like 40 if that

I'd have a threesome with them

I just can't with this guy. His work is a total rip off of Jean Cocteau, Warhol's early career drawings and Cecil Beaton's doodles.

by Anonymousreply 14June 23, 2022 9:47 PM

The house is decorated hideously and he is tiresome. You can tell he thinks he’s better than everyone else. I would be surprised if him and his fiancé actually make it down the aisle.

Good for the whippet, bad for the boy

It's 'the Cotswolds' not 'Cotswold', you spaz.

by Anonymousreply 17June 24, 2022 6:47 AM

The Cotswolds are full of rich Londoners, many of the media types, playing at being country folk. They have been buying up property for decades and pushing up prices, to the extent that locals have no chance of ever buying a property of their own. The area is very beautiful, but full of coked up arseholes.

by Anonymousreply 18June 24, 2022 6:58 AM

R14 He stole all his ideas from them, and he's so flagrant in doing so. As if he is daring for anyone to point out how derivative his work is, but he knows no one will. Damn, the self-confidence of rich people knows no bounds.

He’s ugly and he seems bitchy.

It's a bad sign when you put books on chairs because the chairs would collapse if people sat on them.

Another interview. The boyfriend's swallowed accent is genuinely upper class, so maybe that's where the money comes from.

There's a zillion English gay couples like this in the shires.

I know he said the cottage was a blank canvas, but the lack of interior architectural details bothers me. Even the mantels seem new.

Personally, I have a problem with formal design in an informal setting (or vice-versa. I don't want to see American Folk Art Country design in a 5th Ave mansion either. A few objects as art pieces, fine; but, not an entire room in the style.)

by Anonymousreply 27June 24, 2022 11:51 AM

My personal perception is that Luke Edward Hall's designs are more revivalist than stealing, and I would add Christian Bérard to the list of his inspiration. He isn't as blatant as Jonathan Adler.

by Anonymousreply 28June 24, 2022 12:09 PM

I usually hate tours like this, but he seems less pretentious than most. But all those THINGS! Who dusts it all?

Happy to see A Little Life on his pile of books.

Not everyone wants to live the life of a stupid whore like you R2.

by Anonymousreply 30June 24, 2022 12:37 PM

The boyfriend is better looking. I suspect they're both from very wealthy families and that's where the money comes from.

Luke's approach sounds low effort (he looks through books, then does some sketches, oh and travels a lot). Sounds like someone who does minimal work because they don't really need any money, but they have to have a 'career' -- so being an artist fits the bill.

Hilariously pretentious.

Imagine being the parents having to support this a hole. His hair reminded me of Cameron Diaz in Something about Mary. Maybe we should retitle his video, Something about a Mary. He surely has the Mary hair thing happening.

How has the Warhol Foundation not busted his basic ass for plagiarism. He panders to his generation; Gen Z who have no knowledge or interest in anything before their own lifetime. Everything they do is 'new' and never been done before.

I've followed these two little queens for years. Very creative, very "now" with English design. They are cooed over and fawned over by the young London design elite.

One thing that has always bothered the shit out of me, however, is that in his Instagram, he almost never cracks a smile. I always thought it was that he takes himself so very seriously (ugh).

But now that I've seen him on video, talking, I know why he doesn't smile in photos.

Very creative R38? Rehashing a theme from the 1920s in the same manner as the original? If ever there was a definition for reductive, it's Luke Edward Hall.

His boyfriend is Prince of the Douche Nozzle.

R44/R45, you really are not doing your argument any favors. All you have proved is that Warhol was interested and inspired by the same source material as Luke Edward. Warhol's material is just as derivative as Edwards. The only difference is that he has the Warhol name.

by Anonymousreply 46June 25, 2022 6:55 PM

R46 I also mentioned in an earlier comment that he rips from Cocteau and Beaton.

I follow his Instagram. They just got married in Italy I think. Luke writes a column for the weekend Financial Times. They seem super well-connected. But good for him. He sounds like a nice guy and pretty matter-of-fact for a decorator.

@r44, "Do some better research [R42]"

Why? I was agreeing with the premise that Luke may have "lifted" his look from Warhol

Do better reading comprehension, r44 😏

All I think with these tours is - this is one step away from hoarding. Same can be true of art collectors I guess. The materialistic drive behind the acquisition is a turn off. More stuff - meh.

The Cotswold queen needs to invest in a hairbrush.

Asolutely charming! I love his style. I love the Cotswalds. I love that he mentioned author Laurie Lee who grew up in the Cotswalds and wrote delightfully about his childhood there.
