Henry Bourne photographs his home in London for the Spring 2012 Design issue of T Magazine. Bourne shares the mid-19th century house with his wife, designer Harriet Anstruther, and their teenage daughter.

Art hangs everywhere; both old and new art work Anstruther and Bourne collect, and Bourne’s own photography. His studio is on the basement level and it opens to a garden courtyard. Bourne calls the house the best of both worlds. He explains, “I would say I’m a modernist, but I love the Georgian aesthetic — especially when it isn’t filled with Georgian things.”

The Selby photographed Somer and Mattos as they prepared meals and the menu. He also added one of his signature drawings, this one of a caveman, as a nod to the restaurant’s simple theme.
