Singer Rita Ora is highlighting her beautiful home.
The singer recently gave Architectural Digest a tour of her warm and friendly Victorian home in the Primrose Hill area of North London, revealing that the house has a long and illustrious history.
In a YouTube video for their Open Door series posted on October 5, the singer noted, “One of the main reasons why I bought this property was because of the history.”
“It dates back to the 1800s and was formerly owned by Arthur Rackham, one of my favourite illustrators.
All of the artwork for Alice in Wonderland, Little Red Riding Hood, etc. was done by him. As soon as I stepped foot in this place, I could feel the abundance of positive energy and the surge of inspiration that I so desperately need.”
The 31-year-old, who recently married filmmaker Taika Waititi, revealed that she had known from the moment she stepped inside her home that it was destined to serve as her sanctuary of seclusion, particularly because of an original piece of glasswork in the arch of her doorway.
Rita explained, “It’s a sign because that clock in the middle means time in my language.” The Albanian meaning of her surname is “time,” hence “Ora” is her family name. As soon as I came in, I was like, “Ah, it’s meant to be,” and that’s the personal connection I was talking about.
The artist of “Your Song” says comfort is the driving force behind her home, which has both traditional characteristics like wood panelling and more contemporary details like original artwork hung at various points. She said, “I adore things feeling warm.” The emphasis is on cosiness in London.
The “Shine Ya Light” singer made care to maintain originality at the centre of her home’s design, which features a living area with a breathtaking outlook that opens onto her expansive garden.
She explained, “I didn’t want to, kind of, overload it with all these ornaments because I wanted the home to speak for itself in terms of its architecture and the history of the building.”
Do not be anxious, Rita Ora, for the splendour of nature speaks for itself. Get a better understanding by watching the video.
