Property A Victorian terraced house spread over three floors in Dulwich, south London, with 10 rooms, including 5 bedrooms, kitchen and dining area, living room, reception room, and 2 bathrooms.
The leather chair was a find at a Chiswick auction house. It originally came from a bank in Belgium.
1/9 Living room
The rug is from IKEA
Although narrow, this galley-style kitchen is packed with storage, including cupboards and drawers. The stone worktops add a luxurious feel to the white, streamlined look.

The ground floor was designed to create a continuous space from the living room, through to the dining area and kitchen, and out of the folding floor-to-ceiling aluminium doors into the back garden. The kitchen itself is the closest to the original minimal designs for the house, with lots of storage.
4/9 Dining room
The vintage church chairs add a rustic element to this modern dining area. The owner has adorned the walls with her own artwork for a contemporary look.
The crockery is from Habitat
Mirrors give the small bathroom the illusion of space. A sliding door also maximises the space. The vintage-style mirror in off-white provides a rustic yet simple look.
Tongue-and-groove panels add depth to the space and the hallway is brightened by the ice-white walls and ceilings.
Find white paint at Dulux
A bedroom decorated in floral wallpaper, in soothing soft green and gold tones, has a calming atmosphere.
8/9 Bedroom accents
The glass-fronted cabinet, originally part of a shop fitting, is from a junk shop in Maidstone. It plays off the vintage feel of the reproduced chair and oval repainted mirrors.

The dining room leads out onto patio decking, where a table and chairs create a relaxed feeling. The patio doors pull back to make inside and out one big space, ideal for entertaining, plus the patio provides a fantastic suntrap for late afternoon drinks.
