The previous owners of this elegant house had prioritised style over practicality. Our task was to make this a home that works for every member of the family. On the ground floor, both reception rooms have been painted in soft, neutral shades accented by bold, colour-blocked joinery. During the day, the rooms provide a comfortable, calm space to work or relax. Come the evening, the floor-to-ceiling curtains are drawn and the rooms become a cocooning space for reading or entertaining. A joyous playroom has been created in the basement. On the upper floors, the master bedroom and dressing room is now a soft, enveloping grown-up space, whilst the children’s rooms have been wrapped in lively patterns and furnished with a combination of contemporary and antique furniture.
Patterns and colours aplenty but not overdone or too bold. Designed by Sarah Brown.
