HOUSE OF THE MONTH
This north London Victorian home needed most of its structure rebuilt because of its deteriorating foundations. But there was no sacrificing on period appeal. Original features like cornicing and wooden floors were sanded down and the staircase railings were faithfully stripped back to black wrought iron, creating a truly show-stopping entrance hallway. Full of colour, texture and designer gems, there is no denying this house is impossibly glamorous, but quirky touches - a faux sheep anyone? - make it fun and welcoming also. Get ready to tantalise all your senses!
Be inspired by the White Isle with a chilled-out mix of folksy prints, natural textures and of course pom pom trims. A macrame wall hanging here, a hanging cocoon chair there, you get the very casual drift. And don’t forget the importance of soft colour accents – think muted blues and pinks – and texture. Lots of it. Embrace rustic with wooden plates showing their natural grain and beautiful tactile rugs. Then pour yourself a drink and relax…
Bring the five-star vibe into your home by taking notes from some of the world’s most luxurious suites. Go for feel-good signage that will always be a talking point or the subtle opulence of Edwardian glamour. Or make a moody and dramatic statement with layers of black combined with metallic finishes. Whichever you decide, it’s time to flood your bathroom with serious style.
