A semi-detached Victorian house in south London. It has a playroom in the basement, and a large open-plan kitchen, dining and living space, 2 studies, a WC and a utility room on the ground floor. Upstairs are 2 children's rooms, a family bathroom, the master suite with dressing room, and a guest bedroom with en suite. On the top floor is a child's bedroom with en suite, 2 guest bedrooms and a bathroom.
1/7 Living area
The kitchen's sleek design encompasses the clean lines and abundant storage that the owners love.
Large windows make for uninterrupted views in this minimalist modern dining area. Pops of colour appear in the accessories and Union Jack footstool, adding character to the scheme.
The owners created a huge window with opaque glass to offer privacy from neighbouring houses and to allow a soft light to filter through.
The traditional style staircase respects the Victorian heritage of the house, while the painted balusters add a shot of lush colour.
6/7 Master bedroom
A pale carpet and colourful cushions add a soft, feminine feel. The deep, dark purple on the wall gives the room an element of glamour and warmth.
7/7 Guest bathroom
The owner wanted something funky so she used glitter grout and tiles that resembled Fox's Glacier Mints.
