Property A four-storey Georgian terraced house in Holland Park, west London.
The space An open-plan kitchen and dining area in the basement. Living room on the ground floor. Bedroom and dressing room with en-suite bathroom on the first-floor, and 2 smaller bedrooms and bathroom on the second floor.
The kitchen is warm and welcoming, with mellow-coloured cherry-wood shelving and cupboards. It also has quirky nooks and crannies for appliances, books and utensils. The centrepiece of this open-plan basement is an enormous kitchen/dining table made from a solid piece of elm.
The owners designed the bathroom, mixing a touch of oriental luxury with a hint of old-fashioned gentlemen’s club style – a combination of rich, dark-walnut fittings and pale limestone walls. Generously sized tiles make the space seem bigger. And the design makes the most of the compact space, with a toilet that doubles up as a bench when you put the lid down.
The walnut fitting are by Adam Dawe Design.
