Shades of grey create a real sense of sophistication and surprising warmth in this living room. Layered cushions, a large window, abstract painting and textured rug make sure the space remains cosy but light.
To lift the darkness of the grey, the adjoining walls have been painted cream for a softening effect. The fireplace and shutters add a traditional touch that help to accentuate the original features in the room.
In this kitchen-diner, which is at the other end of the main living room, the feature wall floor-to-ceiling bookcases are a stunning addition, and act as a screen keeping an adjoining guest room separate. Black is the overriding colour here, with gloss surfaces and a glass pendant light bringing another dimension to the look.
Although small, the kitchen is ideal for the owner and her daughter’s needs. Appliances and storage are hidden away in units – one houses the fridge, freezer, oven and microwave behind sliding dark oak-stained doors, and on the other side of the room is a unit with the sink, dishwasher and hob.

Still following the theme of grey throughout the house, this dining room, at the other end of the second living room, has been painted a slightly lighter shade. A black gloss dining table is a stunning focal point, while the traditional-style marble fireplace is a contrast to the modernism of the rest of the room.
High-gloss wardrobes and rubber flooring add interest to this neutral bedroom, as well as helping to open up the space and keep it light. A no-fuss bed gives the room a minimal feel, and all storage remains tucked away behind the sliding doors.
