A period terrace house in London's southwest. The lower-ground floor of this modern home includes two children’s bedrooms, a bathroom and a playroom. On the ground floor is a kitchen-diner. Above is the living room, library and a WC. On the top floor is the master bedroom, en-suite bathroom, a shower room and dressing room/study.
Harlequin's bold, geometric Sumi wallpaper creates a striking feature in the hallway (pictured above).The shell-frame mirror was a family heirloom.
Alongside the roaring fire and striking paintings, this London terrace boasts an exciting mix of pattern, colour, inherited pieces, contemporary furniture and cleverly upcycled finds. The living room was designed around the fireplace.
Shades of lilac and orange blend in with this neutral scheme.
A practical, stainless-steel table provides additional storage and worktop space in this industrial-style kitchen.

Rather than kit the house out from scratch, existing pieces were modified so that they work in their new surroundings.
The fabulous chairs, which were a gift, have been upholsteredin a zingy red and blue fabric.
The plate rack holds china by Astier de Villatte – a new piece is added to the collection each year. The lights on either side of the rack are bespoke.
The study-come-dressing room on the top floor is complete with bespoke shelving, which flanks a simple desk.
Here, the same wallpaper is used as in the living room, but in a different shade. It gives a little bit of depth without interfering with the overall scheme.The headboard is made from two old doors that were found at a tip.
This girls bedroom is pink to the max, but as young girls get older, some of the fluffy stuff can be trimmed out and the girls can still enjoy it.
