This Edwardian terrace in south east London could feel dark and gloomy but the owners have opened it up with a neutral colour scheme. They also fitted glass sliding doors out to a decked area in the the back garden that brings in tons of light.
Their original front door glazing was mostly intact, save for the centre
section, so the owners had a glazier make up two new stained glass
panels to match the existing ones, using old and new glass. It cost
about £300 for the pair but really finishes the door off perfectly and
keeps the hall more private, too.
The homeowner runs her own online interiors shop, Ebury Home & Garden so has a good eye for colour and style. The muted
colour scheme has not only transformed the once-dark space, but also
allows the carefully chosen statement pieces to make more of an impact.
An extended tiled splashback adds interest to the neutral scheme.
