Property: A North London, Victorian villa, built during the 1850s divided into flats in the 1960s and converted back to a single property in 2007.
Space: Hallway, living room, dining room/kitchen, TV room, playroom, study, cloakroom, utility room, pantry, wine cellar, 6 bedrooms (1 en-suite), bathroom.
This property was gradually bought over time, from the owner initially purchasing the middle flat, to buying all 3 and creating a bright and spacious home.
Space is maximised in this home office with fitted shelving utilising every corner – perfect for storing books. Colourful spines add a splash of colour to the all-white background. A classic dark-wood desk sits beneath one of many original sash windows.
A purpose-built table was made to fit the space perfectly in this bright and airy dining room. The choice of dark-wood table and chairs balances out the white background, and pendant lights hang over the top for a dramatic twist.
A made-to-measure children’s desk sits below the vast bay windows in this kids’ playroom, creating a useable space that will grow with age. Displaying favourite toys keeps the room looking young and fresh.
