The artful use of materials by Steve Nash

Interior designer Steve Nash is the founder and creative force behind the studio ALL & NXTHING, and he has used many of his skills on his own home.

A converted Victorian cottage in North London, there are plenty of interesting materials at work here. From the microcement that is used on the floor of the living room and wall of the bathroom to the reclaimed parquet that Steve has turned into a kitchen island, there are beautiful surprises everywhere.  

Steve says his aim for the extended cottage was to create a space that feels cosy, while also being a place that lent itself nicely to social gatherings. And so the dark concrete and dark paints create a cosseting atmosphere, while the island was purposefully large for people to gather around at parties.

Throughout the home,  brilliantly smart ideas exist to make the most of the space. The vanity, built into the bedroom storage, is a particularly brilliant way of getting a lot from a narrow space.

The double height bathroom is great for growing plants, which Steve says love the humidty.
