A humbug-like exterior makes this home different to your average bungalow.

2/8 Living room

The look in this living room is very global traveller with an LA twist. Travel finds from Morocco, Bali and Peru are displayed against a palette of chocolate and white, and a dash of leopard print.

For leopard print fabric, try Zanzibar at GP&J Baker. The cushions are from Madeline Weinrib Atelier.

3/8 Seating area

The seating area in the living room is a creative mix of fabrics, colours and textures infused with tribal pieces from around the world.

For an acrylic coffee table, see the Ice at John Lewis.

4/8 Kitchen-diner

The kitchen has a clean and modern look, but the beautiful walnut wood brings in the tribal element that's found in the rest of the house. Open shelves allow space for a pop of colour and personal touches.

For bar stools in this style, see the Kiss stool by Cattelan Italia at Mac & Mac InteriorsMobius Living sells director-style dining chairs.

5/8 Master bedroom

The crazy splashes of colour and pops of bold fabrics, artwork and accessories add character to the master bedroom, while down-played natural materials, such as wood, woven blinds and rugs, help keep the look grounded.

The headboard is covered in linen by Raoul Textiles, available at George Smith.

6/8 Bedroom seating

Flashes of lime and orange energise the soft taupe tones of the bedroom. Globetrotting finds are given a glamorous edge, displayed against a neutral wall.

The chair is covered in fabric from Madeline Weinrib Atelier.

7/8 Bathroom

The trompe l'oeil wall stickers of ornate wooden doors give the bathroom a period feel.

For a similar bath try CP Hart.

8/8 Children’s room

The children's room is an exception to the house's all-white palette. The bold red on the walls contrast with the monochrome flooring for a retro feel that oozes individual style and character.

The bed, desk and lamps are from IKEA.
