A Victorian house in south London, with an open-plan living room, study and kitchen-diner on the ground floor, The first floor has two bedrooms, a dressing room and a shower room, and there's an open-plan suite in the loft.
1/9 Living room
The owners have created a design that's soothingly uncluttered yet welcoming. Bright soft furnishings bring this neutral living room to life.
2/9 Home office
Recessed overhead storage keeps surfaces clear in this open-plan home office.
3/9 Kitchen extension
The ground-floor walls were removed to create a large space with distinct zones in this extension. The folding glass doors can be pushed back and you can move through three or four different atmospheres in the same place.
4/9 Kitchen cabinetry
The units in this kitchen are customised using reclaimed oak and weathered handles, invoking a hint of untamed outback. The carcasses were chosen for their fantastic mechanisms.
Bespoke bar stools in a zingy lime shade give the kitchen a retro look. The island, like the worktops, is in Brazilian slate - it is an incredibly practical surface with a warm texture.
6/9 Loft bedroom
The owners have made the most of unusable space by building storage in the eaves. Strong lines in monochrome and wood give this loft space a masculine edge.
7/9 Loft home office
Exposed brick and whitewashed cladding create an easy, informal feel in this loft space. This cladding, called shiplap, is inexpensive and consists of overlapping horizontal panels fixed to a framework of battens.
A vintage light has impact over the bath, while angled spotlights are more attuned to night-time reading.
The exposed brickwork in this cloakroom acts as a great feature wall, working well alongside the reclaimed units and weathered handles.
