For a while, it was the mudroom that grabbed home buyers’ attention as the most coveted tiny room of the house. The new status small space (according to our highly unscientific analysis)? The walk-in pantry.

Recently, we spotted on the historical real estate site Inigo the extremely charming pantry of Matilde Goad, the talented British designer who never met a scalloped design she didn’t like (her online store has napkins, lamp shades, and planters—all of her design and all featuring the charming silhouette). Not surprisingly, she has a penchant for floral prints and vintage pieces, too, but she elevates and modernizes the granny chic aesthetic with bold colors and graphic elements.

“I’m a great believer of the idea that if you happen to come across something that you love, you will always find a home for it,” she told Inigo. “I don’t over-consider anything, to me that’s what adds charm and character to a room. I think some people probably think my home and my style is bit of a mashup, but I’m just unafraid of mixing something from the ’50s with a really modern item that I could’ve bought last week from The Conran Shop. If you love something and it feels right, it will all work together in the end.”

Above: Matilde’s small kitchen in her London home features granite counters (notice the scalloped backsplash behind the sink) and cabinets painted Sage Green from Little Greene. The walls are painted with a peachy lime wash from Bauwerk. A slim doorway on the left leads to the tiny pantry.
Her kitchen has become Instagram-famous, thanks to the photogenic oxblood and cream checkerboard backsplash behind the stove.
