When the owners bought this brilliantly located home on west London, the awkward layout was the first thing to be changed. It now flows with a largely open-plan design. There are 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a cloakroom, utility room, raised ground floor reception, kitchen, and, seen here, a double-height dining room and conservatory.
The double-height dining room was created by removing a section of the living room above, which was then walled off with glass. Light pouring down from upstairs allows the dark shades of blue to look dramatic without overpowering.
Following out from the dining room and conservatory is a walled garden. Brightly coloured accents lift the concrete walls and paved floors, while white metal garden furniture creates a charming alfresco dining area.
Fretwork stair risers with lighting behind have turned this enclosed staircase into a dramatic feature. The use of block colour in the kitchen continues the eye-catching look seen throughout the lower ground floor.
The glass wall allowing light to flood into the downstairs dining room also keeps the living room feeling modern. Cupboards have been built either side of the fireplace, and the original floorboards were sanded back and limed for a fresh feel.

Two shades of limestone – mink on the walls and floor, and cream on the vanity top – give a warm glow to this bathroom. Glass shelves filled with products pick up on the light theme that’s seen throughout the house.
