Go Fug Your Kitchen: Sophie Conran’s Bayswater Flat
Sophie Conran is yet another child of British design royalty Sir Terence and his second wife cookery writer Caroline Conran. Sophie is maybe not quite as famous as her brothers Jasper and Sebastian (whose Notting Hill house has already had the honour of featuring in GFYR) but still has serious design chops as the designer behind the Sophie Conran for Portmeirion dinnerware and a newish range of wallpapers for Arthouse among many other food and product collaborations.
Her Bayswater flat is not really interesting enough for a whole Go Fug Your Room, as most of it is blandly inoffensive and seems to have come straight out of the pages of ‘Fuck Your Noguchi Coffee Table’.

Er, excuse me?
Apparently Ms Conran let her daughter chose the wall colour, an evil which has been compounded by picking out the ornate mouldings in stark white, making the whole thing look like a particularly tasteless wedding cake.
So, in the run up to Mother’s Day, I’d like to ask the delightful mirrormirror commentariat two simple questions. Is this kitchen fugly and should kids ever be allowed to make décor decision not immediately pertaining to their own bedrooms?
In previous Go Fug Your Room news, around 30% of you liked Adam Levine’s house (and weren’t influenced in any way, shape or form by his cute smile. No sirree). Around 30% of you thought it was fugly and 40% of you were meh on the whole thing.
