The owners decided to run the carpet across the hall floor from the stairs to accentuate the visual flow of the house from the moment you walk through the door.

The carpet is from Crucial Trading. The George console table is from English Looking Glasses.

3/7 Kitchen

Gleaming white surfaces, a pewter coloured Aga and soft grey cupboards help attract light into the basement kitchen.

The bespoke kitchen is from Kitchen Architecture. The Limestone floor is from Kirkstone.

4/7 Living room

Cushions in a spectrum of brown and burnt orange tones bring out the warmth of the walnut coffee table in this smart living room.

Find the Hudson sofa and chair at Kingcome Sofas. The curtains are Prolific Silver from Beacon Hill. Find a similar side table at I&JL Brown Interiors.

The neutral backdrop allows the owner to decorate this dining room in a variety of ways, depending on the time of year and the occasion.

Find a similar dining table and chairs at I&JL Brown Interiors, covered in Duplex in Eggshell from Larsen.

6/7 Bathroom

Light played a big role in planning this home - the sun rises in the owners' bedroom and sets in the bathroom - perfect for relaxing at the end of a busy day.

The bath is from Water Monopoly. The blind is Silk Stripe from Pret a Vivre.

7/7 Patio

Decking and raised beds were chosen instead of a play area. The garden room was given planning consent because its sedum and pebble roof is easy on the eye for the neighbours.

The stainless steel table with chairs and integrated barbecue was designed by Andrew Herring and made by Toby Clayton.
