Dramatic changes were made to this previously untouched Victorian house in order to create the open-plan family home the owners so desired. The perfect balance of light, modern living and child-friendly and comfortable rooms make this a stand-out home.
A strong influence of Scandinavian style is present throughout the house, with pale shades, and white-painted wood and simple, elegant furniture.
Indian horse-head statues, symbolising good luck, adorn the stylish white fireplace and are surrounded by matching button-back chairs for a casual, and relaxed seating area. Shelves in the alcoves provide useful storage, and the colourful spines add a decorative feature to the white background.
Warm wooden counters and flooring soften the modern, streamlined look of this kitchen, while custom-built units and shelves are fitted to maximise space. A kitchen island adds extra storage, and doubles up as a breakfast bar.
All the classic features and cornicing of the property are brought to life by the all-white colour scheme. A single button-backed chair, teamed with simple glass vases lining the mantlepiece, adds depth and texture to the room.
Decking was laid in the garden for a Californian-style feel, with white walls and evergreen shrubs continuing the theme. The warmth of the white paint and wooden worktops in the kitchen has been extended out into the garden creating an intimate atmosphere.
