This large living room and adjoining dining room are perfect for entertaining or relaxing. Reserved for grown-ups, it has the elegant feel of a hotel bar, thanks to the beautiful ceiling roses, velvet sofa, sculptural lighting and rich colours.
The living room has a calm vibe with dashes of violet and green adding some spice. A green cube draws the eye to the alcove, where simple shelves display family photos. The statement mirror over the fireplace makes it the focal point.
Gloss black-and-white units provide a striking backdrop for this colourful splashback. The dining table can be slid back into the units when more floor space is needed. The wood of the table brings added warmth to this statement look.
To create a consistent look in the open-plan space, gloss paint in the same colour as the kitchen splashback was used on the staircase that joins the basement and ground floor. The child’s table and chairs, which fit out of the way under the stairs when not in use, designates an area for them to play.
This hallway cleverly mixes classic and contemporary looks, making it a striking entrance to the house. The dark ceramic floor tiles are a tactile choice for a high-traffic area, and complement the white walls and modern side table.
The en-suite bathroom has a double-ended bath, perfect for relaxing. The wooden bath panel is a warming addition to the otherwise cool scheme.
The bath was by Norman Foster.
