This coastal-style Victorian terraced house in south London takes inspiration from restful Hamptons homes in New York. There's a living room, playroom, WC, utility room and kitchen-diner with pantry on the ground floor. Upstairs, an office, shower room, main bedroom and guest bedroom. On the floor above, a bedroom and WC and, at the top of the house, a bedroom and bathroom. In the living room, the sea grass flooring and timber furnishings add warmth and character. The rest of the terrace is furnished with a mix of decorative antiques and vintage pieces.

Zeffirelli at Ochre
2/8 Kitchen storage
The owner created a storage space in the kitchen using painted MDF panelling to cover the chimney breast. Any clutter, such as cookery books and kitchen utensils, can be hidden away, maintaining a clean, minimalist look.
A rich dark grey has been used on the units, island and open shelves. The fridge and freezer are concealed inside a tall, freestanding cabinet.

4/8 Dining room
The owner had panelling installed throughout the dining room, for a Hamptons-chic feel, but added vintage furniture to give the scheme a rustic edge.
The balusters have been replaced with bespoke, modern alternatives, complemented by designer wallpaper. Numeral stencils provide a unique feature on each step.

The wall between the playroom and the living room had been knocked through, but the owner had it reinstated. A red and white striped rug is a playful element in this room.
7/8 Main bedroom
A serene space, this bedroom features a seven-foot square bed, big enough for a whole family to pile on. A muted floral wallpaper provides a feminine element.
This top-floor space was originally a shower room, but it was later redesigned as a family bathroom.
