The property 

We talk a lot about blending styles. For us it's what makes a modern home, it's what adds interest and quirk, and personality. Bringing together different styles and eras creates eclectic rooms that draw you in, and the more you look around the space the more it surprises you. 

And this fabulous West London property is a lesson in mixing interior styles – it pulls together rustic farmhouse, Mid-century modern, traditional elegance, global aesthetic, and lots more looks that don't slide as easily into categories. The result is a beautiful home that feels super stylish but also very much lived in, it's a true reflection of the homeowner's personal style and proves that things don't always have to 'go together to compliment each other.

The ground floor of this huge eight-bedroom property is almost totally open plan, interrupted only by series of steel supporting pillars and the statement steel staircase that stands in the middle of the space. Both these give the room an industrial edge, which creates a very cool contrast with the original features of the home.

A kitchen, dining room and living room fill the large space. The kitchen is the perfect example of the blending of styles we were talking about. It has a very modern feel to it with the stainless steel topped island, retro dresser, and bar stools. But look closer and there are elements of a more rustic country style here too with the Aga, traditional blue tiles, and the rail of hanging pots and pans.

Leading from the kitchen, a spacious dining room sits in front of the large bay window. The soft grey of the walls give the space an elegant, lofty feel that suits the high ceilings and ornate ceilings perfectly. But as with all the rooms in this home, there's a modern twist with the curved dining table that mirrors the kitchen island and sculptural dark dining chairs.

A rustic living room is opposite the kitchen which provides an informal space to relax within the main living area. The slubby white sofa gives a soft farmhouse feel to this otherwise very contemporary, industrial space.

The center of the open-plan space is punctuated with a section of double-height glazing, with seamless sliding doors opening out onto a veranda. These windows allow light to flood into the back of the house, as well as down into the basement studio below which is accessed by a hidden hatch in the floor.

Study

The study can also be found on the ground floor. The aubergine walls, expanse of books and antique furniture have a very different feel to the light and airy space that makes up the rest of the ground floor, but the atmosphere the moody hues and traditional shapes create feels perfect for a brooding home office.  

Sitting room

A cozier, more intimate sitting room can be found on the first floor. The deep pink and warm orange walls give this room a cocooning feel, enhanced only by the dark wooden furniture, floral printed sofa, and touches of tartan. The unique decor brings a boho vibe to the space, giving the room an eclectic, layered look.

More color can be found on the second-floor landing, of which can be found four of the eight bedrooms. Pinks and yellows meet sage greens which lead on to the pale blue master bedroom. The rugs mirror these colors and bring texture to the space too.

The master bedroom is light and airy with a white and pale blue color palette. Rustic elements are addeded with the artwork, chandelier, and chest of drawers.

In one of the guest bedrooms, deep ochre walls are mixed with olive greens to create a cozy and inviting space.

The eclectic style continues in the family bathroom, where vintage finds and quirky artwork are combined with a traditional roll-top bath.

The same deep yellows and greens that are found in the guest bedroom can also be found in the small bathroom on the top floor. The simple square tiles and sleek, square shapes of the sanitaryware contrast the original radiator and the vintage vanity cabinet. 

Garden

The spacious urban garden feels both landscaped and natural. There are clear zones to the space, with a patio nearest the house for alfresco meals, a lawned area behind, and a second hidden patio towards the end of the garden. The very natural planting and meandering paths give the space less structure and give the garden a never-ending feel.
