2/9 Living room
The custom-built kitchen is a delicious, light-filled space. Freestanding pieces help keep the mood relaxed and welcoming. A stainless steel workbench, Siemens (opens in new tab) fridge and a range cooker work well alongside two Butler (opens in new tab) sinks.
This clean-lined room, painted in white and muted hues gives the house a contemporary mood, yet the vintage finds add personality and warmth.
5/9 Dining room
The letters came from salvage shop, Casa (opens in new tab).
6/9 Hallway staircase
The walls are painted white to reflect as much light as possible (aided by the almost double-height windows or French doors on each landing). Up the stairwell are black-framed photos and junk-shop mirrors.
For similar vintage mirrors, try Harrison & Gil (opens in new tab).
The wall paint is from Farrow & Ball (opens in new tab).
An all-white backdrop gives this room a simple, minimal feel while creating the impression of space. Built-in shelving maximises the available space.
For plain cream curtains, try IKEA (opens in new tab).
