THE PROPERTY

A Georgian townhouse in south London. On the upper-ground floor are living and cinema areas, with a study on the half-landing. The lower-ground floor has a kitchen-diner, family area, utility room and WC. The master bedroom suite is on the first floor, while the second floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom.

See more in the video below and read on to find out what the owner did.

DINING AREA

The dining area (pictured top) combines contemporary lighting with vintage finds, alongside plenty of lush pot plants.

A double-height void above the reading corner allows ample natural light to flow down into the lower-ground floor, while lush plants add to the indoor-outdoor mood.

Get the look: The armchair is by The Conran Shop. The mirror is by Lombok. The cushion is by Blackpop.

Photography displayed around the home includes Dominique Tarlé’s image of Keith Richards and his son Marlon (pictured below), which was taken in 1971 during the musician’s self-imposed tax exile to France. The work of ceramicist Jane Muir is quirky but also very perceptive.

By mixing pieces that whisper of a glamorous past with a dash of modernity, this home feels contemporary.

KITCHEN

The kitchen sits between the family and dining areas in this long, open-plan space. The natural shade of the cabinetry softens the stainless-steel surfaces and polished concrete. It’s a hard-working kitchen with plenty of storage,  always key with open-plan living.

Get the look: The kitchen is by Dan Clark Furniture. This is a Mercury range cooker. The architecture is by Robert Dye Architects.

This Georgian townhouse has been home to the same family for 10 years, so reinventing its style and structure has been a slow-burner, rather than a rush-in-and-rip-out project.

Robert Dye Architects created this double-height extension at the back, which added a study to the higher level and a large kitchen-diner at garden level. A set of roof lights and subtle vertical openings between levels allow a free flow of light, so the two floors feel connected.

LANDING

An array of loved objects, books and art inject personality to the landing on the top floor.

Get the look: The collectable figures are by Frank Kozik for Toy2R. The cinema seat was snapped up on eBay and reupholstered. The banister is painted in Railings estate eggshell by Farrow & Ball.

MASTER BEDROOM

The Ellen von Unwerth print in the master bedroom is of model Omahyra Mota, Jean Paul Gaultier’s muse.

Get the look: The photograph is by Ellen von Unwerth. The bed is by Poliform. The cushions are by Niki Jones and One Nine Eight Five. The bedside table is from Rockett St George.

BOYS’ BEDROOM

The cool mural was bought in Holland. It’s a collaborative work by a group of Rotterdam graffiti artists.

Get the look: Head to the Affordable Art Fair for similar artwork. The bed is by The White Company. Find similar wall lights at Made.com. The cushion is by Scion at John Lewis.

MASTER BATHROOM

The master bathroom is the place to relax at the end of a long day. The bath came with the house, but the walk-in shower was tucked in later, enabling a quicker wash-and-go in the morning.

Get the look: Find a similar bath at The Albion Bath Company. The brassware is by Villeroy & Boch.

Steve McQueen casts an approving eye over the bathroom’s luxe style from the hallway.

Get the look: The movie poster is vintage. The floor tiles are by Mosaic del Sur.

GARDEN

The new extension was complemented with a garden redesign by Barbara Samitier, turning a stretch of wrecked lawn into a sequence of serene spaces linked by paved paths.

Get the look: The garden was designed by Barbara Samitier, with tiles by Alhambra Tiles. The outdoor sofas are by Gloster Furniture. The lamp is by Anglepoise.
