Take a tour around a five-storey townhouse in London

This modernist Sixties house is a celebration of light and space. See inside some of the most beautiful homes with Livingetc

The brick wall in this dining area has been painted with graphite-coloured paint for a gritty feel. The long bench, which seats up to 12, houses cushions for use in the garden. Laura Ashley's Henshaw dining table is similar to this.

The custom-made kitchen has been designed to make maximum use of the narrow space. For similar units, try the Spitalfields Kitchen at Plain English. The cabinet handles are from Chloe Alberry.

3/6 Living room

A baton wall gives the room identity and creates texture without cluttering the space. It also helps the television blend into the scheme. The oak coffee tables are from Sigmar, while the flat-weave rug is from Tim Page Carpets. The flooring is soaped Douglas fir from Dinesen.

4/6 Home office

The home office is given an interesting twist with the inclusion of a glass display cabinet - filled with shoes. You can find a similar cabinet at Retrouvius. The desk is the Magic desk from Yomei.

5/6 Bedroom

A built-in seat by the window in the bedroom provides the perfect spot to watch the world go by. Try Ligne Roset for a similar side table. The carpet is from Tim Page Carpets.

6/6 Bathroom

Built-in cabinets make the narrow bathroom feel bigger. For a similar shower enclosure, try Matki. For shower fittings in this style, see the Agape range at Alternative Plans.
