The owners spent a lot of time creating a unique and eclectic mix of furniture and furnishings that would make this big old house their home. One such find was the Union Jack flag tapestry on the wall in the couple’s snug.

The original and pretty rare Edwardian fireplace was almost replaced by something more modern but thankfully it stayed and was complemented by a Mies van de Rohe chair and the stunning Bauhaus curved desk.
The large skull artwork might not be to everyone’s taste but it makes a powerful style statement – plus it’s by Damien Hirst! The dark plum walls are off-set by plum and gold leaf-motif wallpaper, with the wall above the dado rail kept white to ensure the colour isn’t too overbearing. The circular retro sofa and round coffee table add a sociable aspect to the main living room.
The bedroom is an oasis of calm with a touch of Art Deco style. The soft latte/grey walls provide the perfect backdrop for a few choice pieces of furniture, such as the French-style gold and white chair, the simple bedside cabinet and luxe lamp.
A room with a view and a place to chill out. The large mirror reflects the light from the window, and the chaise longue is an alternative to a compact sofa as it’s big enough for two. The ‘LOVE ME’ sign is by artist Julia Chiang and is a reminder of a daily mantra.
The chaise longue is by Zanotta and can be found at EDC.
