A five-storey Georgian townhouse in north London. The modern home (opens in new tab) a living room (opens in new tab) and study on the ground floor, while the lower-ground floor has a kitchen-diner, family room, WC and utility (opens in new tab) area. The first floor has the master bedroom (opens in new tab) and bathroom; there are two bedrooms and a shower room on the second floor, and the top floor has a guest bedroom (opens in new tab).
The arched stained-glass window (pictured above) is the focal point of the room and provided a natural starting point for the design. A bespoke ottoman was made in a rich pollen shade to match the deep yellow glass, complemented by stools in jewel shades of green.
The pair of paintings of St Paul’s Cathedral add moody blue hues and grey tones, while the dramatic light reflects the curve of the window.Luxurious soft velvet textures work in contrast to the hardwood parquet flooring, brushed metals and shiny glass.
The relaxed zone on the lower-ground floor plays around with colour, art and texture. Above the plush low-slung seating hangs a bespoke neon sign that beams a bright message, like a modern-day version of the stained-glass window. The space opens on to a walled outside area which means gatherings can spread onto the terrace and garden in the summer.
The dining area is the bridge between the kitchen and the relaxed family room beyond. The bright, pop-art-feel print by Mike Edwards and luxurious deep blue chairs inject eye-catching colours to the off-white walls and dark wood flooring.
Lipstick-red artwork by Sara Pope is repeated in a set of pouty Gubi stools that were reupholstered in luscious fuchsia velvet, giving the space an edgier feel.
Choosing a marble splashback and worktop means the natural striations add subtle pattern to the fuss-free kitchen cabinetry (opens in new tab). Knarled brass handles and light fittings act as a gleaming contrast for a chic finishing touch.
A pair of ceiling pendants add real impact as you enter the house, offset by soft grey tones on the walls and carpet.
The strength of the deep blue headboard and amber cushions are wrapped up in the softest of fabrics, giving the guest bedroom a traditional yet luxurious feel. the old-fashioned finishing touches mean the overall look is serene but far from bland.
The wall-mounted stag heads add fun into the master bathroom (opens in new tab)'s serene blue backdrop, a space that is flooded with natural light from a tall window.
Get the look: The freestanding bath is by West OneBathrooms with Bristan Heritage brassware. The walls are painted in Double La Seine acrylic eggshell by Zoffany.
Shades of dusty rose rule in this elegant space, set against the lightest grey walls for a feminine vibe.The sumptuousness of the deep red headboard is surrounded by softer pink velvets.The window extends all the way from floor to ceiling, giving get a real sense of the house’s grandeur.
The dressing table mirror's subtle shape adds softness and is complemented by touches of brass on the bespoke dressing table.
