A three-storey Victorian terrace in west London with a living room, kitchen-diner and WC on the ground floor, two bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor and a third bedroom and bathroom on the second floor. The owner has left some bricks exposed as a reminder of the building’s past. Loud wall art and a bicycle provide an interesting feature around the traditional fireplace.

By opening up the front rooms and hall, the owner has given the home’s Victorian details more presence and room to breathe. The understated grey backdrop is enlivened with lush textures and warmer colours.
The owner doubled her kitchen’s size by extending into the side return and added glazing at the back and a long skylight on the top, providing a sunny contrast to the front room. A bespoke table, mismatched dining chairs, a stainless-steel range cooker and repurposed chicken-house heaters as lights create a contemporary rustic vibe.
The owner indulged in some luxe touches for the bedroom, with chic bedding and bespoke mustard-coloured headboard to lighten up the space. A Victorian-style radiator has also been fitted, in keeping with the building’s heritage.
