The neutral walls and pale sofa provide a tranquil feel, while the leather chairs and dark wood flooring warm up the look.

The leather chairs are from B&T Antiques. The rug is by The Rug Company, and the coffee table from The Conran Shop.

The kitchen is warm and welcoming, with mellow-coloured cherry-wood shelving and cupboards. It also has quirky nooks and crannies for appliances, books and utensils. The centrepiece of this open-plan basement is an enormous kitchen/dining table made from a solid piece of elm.

The Eames chairs are from Twentytwentyone.

The magnetic wall chart was created with Crayola Magnetic Paint, then covered with a coat of Farrow & Ball emulsion in House White. The large globe adds an antique touch to the room.

The owners wanted their bedroom/dressing room to ooze grown-up glamour. The deep shag-pile rug gives this room a luxurious feel. The double doors are from a salvage shop.

6/9 Bathroom

The owners designed the bathroom, mixing a touch of oriental luxury with a hint of old-fashioned gentlemen's club style - a combination of rich, dark-walnut fittings and pale limestone walls. Generously sized tiles make the space seem bigger. And the design makes the most of the compact space, with a toilet that doubles up as a bench when you put the lid down.

The walnut fitting are by Adam Dawe Design.

7/9 Bathroom

The limestone sink unit includes 2 'his 'n' hers' sinks. A steam generator turns the shower into an instant steam room.

The basins were built by The Building Works.

8/9 Bedroom

The soft-leather-covered bedstead and the hand-painted silk wall covering all combine to create a sumptuous boudoir feel.

The leather bed came from The Conran Shop.

Decorative detail, such as bands of colour on the wall, are set off by crisp white bedlinen from John Lewis.
