A four-storey Victorian terrace in southwest London. On the ground floor is a music/living room, with steps down to a kitchen-diner. In the basement there’s a family room, utility room, plus a guest bedroom and bathroom. There is a home office, two bedrooms, a bathroom amd a walk-in wardrobe on the first floor and a further two bedrooms and a walk-in wardrobe in the converted loft.
The kitchen has folding floor-to-ceiling glass doors, leading to a tropical-style terrace with a pink wall, palm fronds and foliage – just the spot for recapturing a holiday mood.

A short flight of steps leads down from the music/living room to the kitchen-diner, giving a natural flow-through. A vintage album cover print adds a fittingly anarchic musical note.
Soft furnishings in cream, ivory and beige create a subtle scheme in the living room. The bay-windows allow light to enter the room making it appear larger. The luxe leather sofa and a Bubble chair add to the Seventies basement party vibe, and as a finishing touch, tropical fish flit around a luminous tank.
This calm white bedroom is decorated with practical storage and minimal furniture in neutral tones. A chunky timber desk partners a sophisticated hand-punched pewter mirror frame.
Black tiles give a cocooning feel, while silvery wallpaper with an organic pattern softens up this contemporary bathroom.
