A five-storey Georgian townhouse in south London. On the lower-ground floor there's a kitchen with a walk-in larder, family room, WC, utility room and wine cellar. One flight above there's a home office, dining room and WC. On the first floor is a drawing room and guest bedroom with en suite, while the master suite is on the second floor. The top floor has the boys' bedrooms, plus a shower room and access to a roof terrace. A traditional-shaped chandelier is formed with metal and mud beads, while the walls of the hallway provide the perfect backdrop for modern artwork.

In the dining room, a porcelain chandelier casts a glow over a bespoke table and a set of Wishbone chairs, plus a shopping bike. The purple shade is modern, but true to Georgian style.

The shape of the kitchen table echoes the curve of the house's rear wall and windows, a key feature of its Georgian architecture.

The home office has a serious look with an acid-etched steel desk and Bauhaus lamp. The robot painting is a 're-rendering' by the artist of a larger scale one he'd just sold to a well-known magnate.

The collection of early black-and-white photographs fit in perfectly with the owner's choice of a cool, monochrome scheme. Shutters are a fantastic way of adding kerb appeal to your home.

The main bedroom is a homage to Italian designer Piero Fornasetti. Set against white walls that could look harsh, but grey makes it easier on the eye.

freestanding tub takes pride of place in front of the fire. Flanked by his-and-hers basins, there's plenty of room for the owners to prepare for a new day.
