Take a tour of this renovated Victorian London home

Clever juxtaposition is the key to success in this London home. Beneath highly decorated, Victorian ceilings sits an array of mid-century and modern furniture, alongside the occasional antique added for good measure. ‘I wanted to modernise the space,’ says the owner of the listed property, ‘but I was conscious that it was a beautiful old building that needed to be preserved. Any changes would have to encompass both elements.’ The landing, seen here, serves as a dining space and a dance floor for parties.
