This was a Victorian three floor terraced house that had been split into two separate flats during the 1960s. We restored the property to a single dwelling and added a new kitchen extension to the rear. This created a vast ground floor space, with the living room, dining area and spacious kitchen seamlessly rolling through each other to the rear garden. The dining area was made larger by knocking through an internal hall wall; to ensure as much light as possible could flood into the remaining hall space I designed the feature glass wall, pictured below with our decorator sitting on the stairs behind it. I looked at many glass bricks but in the end decided the Flemish finish had the retro vibe I was looking for-it certainly creates a talking point and makes the entertaining space feel both light, modern, retro and timeless all at the same time.
The glass brick feature wall (Sir Terrance Conran has ‘liked’ this on my insta account!).
Claw Foot bath detail and distressed star tiles-I wanted the master bathroom to look like original features had been preserved but with modern convieniences such as the free standing shower in the same room.
My signature style-stripped Scandi boards, grey walls, distressed original features and metal focal points, in this case the copper light against the grey.
Freestanding luxury bathtub and modern monsoon shower. If this was my home I would add some freestanding candle holders either side of the bath and a large vintage mirror and shelf above it-swoon!
Sleek and modern Tom Dixon lights compliment the original Victorian coving and high ceilings. I LOVE MONOCHROME…
