Look around this light-filled Edwardian apartment in London

10 images

High ceilings, plenty of light and a good configuration of rooms were the essential prerequisites for the owners of this Edwardian apartment in London, but it took them four years to find it, and to turn it into the home you see here. Gone is the 1930s configuration of small rooms, some of them windowless, that made the apartment feel dark and gloomy and in its place is this vast sitting room and kitchen (see next). Natural finishes for the walls and floor gives this room an earthy simplicity that looks fresh and contemporary.
