A Kind of Magic

An aesthetic cornucopia of interior design inspiration and artistic passion from Luke Edward Hall, one of today’s most colorful and whimsical creative icons

Since bursting onto the London design scene in 2015, young English artist and designer Luke Edward Hall has brought a characteristic verve to everything he touches. In this captivating new monograph, Hall shares the myriad influences that drive his prolific output, from local mythology and folklore to 1980s pop music and all things Baroque, inviting us to peek inside the London home and Cotswolds cottage that he shares with his husband Duncan Campbell, along with his countryside studio—the creative laboratories that form the backdrop to his interior, product, and fashion design, and painting, drawing, and writing. 

A Kind of Magic is a true celebration of Hall’s eclectic, colorful universe, offering a window into his singularly bold interior design style—documented here by close friend and collaborator Billal Taright—and the people, places, and things that inspire him. Peppered with his trademark drawings and paintings together with a selection of his own memorabilia and an assortment of short essays on his passions, from flowers and gardens to cooking and clothes, this treasury of delights invites us to venture into the nostalgic, magical realms of one of the design world’s brightest voices.
