Be wowed by this Edwardian house in Croydon

10 images

This Edwardian terraced house in Croydon looks like a typical three-bedroom property from the outside, but inside the owners’ love of bright colour and bold pattern has turned the otherwise suburban home into a tropical paradise. One half of the couple is originally from the Caribbean and this is evident throughout the interior. Botanical prints, exotic birds, vibrant tones and colonial furniture are features throughout the house. When the owners, a chef and restaurant owner, bought it they knocked down walls that hadn’t been decorated in 30 years to create a large open space full of personality with plenty of room to entertain and cook for their friends.
