Step inside an elegant but functional family home

8 images

Located in a tree-lined street in west London, this Grade II listed property had been turned into 14 bedsits during the 1950s and needed a complete renovation. The interior designer owner wanted to create a ‘beautiful yet functional’ family home, where the spaces would flow together seamlessly. The house is a mix of elegant antiques and more modern and quirky pieces, which give it its individual charm.

Double doors between the dining room and study off the kitchen make this an ideal space for entertaining. Find a similar table and chairs at JVB.
