Ever since Margot profiled the Edinburgh apartment of Nina and Craig Plummer—the designers and shopkeepers behind Ellei Home, then called Ingredients LDN—we’ve returned to its quiet, refined simplicity. In addition to their fairly new studio space, in a 19th-century Renaissance-style building formerly used as a church hall, the duo photographs all of their offerings in situ in their flat, and every detail is designed with this in mind: lime-washed walls for a neutral, evocative backdrop, a kitchen island on casters for easy maneuvering.
Recently, on returning again to the post, we noticed something else about the space: a definite Shaker inflection in the kitchen. Fitting, since Nina told Margot at the time: “We like to think that if we use our values to shape our homes, our homes will, in turn, shape the life that unfolds within them.”
Join us for a look.
