A double-fronted Edwardian house in north London. There’s a gym, cinema, playroom, utility room, boot room and WC in the basement. The ground floor has a living room, home office, kitchen and dining room. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, one with en suite, plus a family bathroom. The master suite is in the loft conversion, with a main bedroom and en suite, walk-in wardrobe, study and terrace. The distressed wall finish is on full display in the living room with the bench-cum-shelf made from 150-year-old oak. The juxtaposition of tactile textures, such as the velvet sofa against concrete and stone, completes the look.
The design is based on the style of a Manhattan loft and all things industrial. The kitchen is the hub of the house, with sight lines into the dining room and living room, so the family always feel connected. The units are deliberately simple, to let the artwork and crockery do the talking.
The fireplace was one of the few original features left in the house when the owners moved in. The mirror and its cast-iron surround were moved from the ground-floor study. Black decorative feature wallpaper has been used all around the room to give it a gothic vibe.
Crystal light fittings provide a twist on the concrete theme in the bathroom. The stool adds a splash of wake-me-up pink.
