A maisonette on the ground and basment floors of a west London townhouse. Upstairs, there is an open-plan living/dining room, a WC and a kitchen/breakfast room housed in the top half of a double-height glass extension (opens in new tab). Downstairs, there is a master bedroom with a dressing room, shower room (opens in new tab) and media area that opens on to the garden (the space can be divided with folding doors to create a third bedroom), kids bedroom and a family bathroom.
1/12 Living room
The decor in this beautifully proportioned west London maisonette is inspired by luxury hotels (opens in new tab). The owners set out to create the ultimate hotel suite, where you forget the cares of the world.
2/12 Wine rack storage
Making the most of the townhouse's impressive proportions, one of the wide alcoves flanking the chimney breast is used as a wine store. The ever-changing wall (opens in new tab) of red wine adds a homely, lived-in feel to the space.

4/12 Breakfast room
The breakfast area opens on to a terrace (opens in new tab) where the family enjoy informal meals. It has been designed so that the owners can feel like they are in their favourite holiday destination - Ibiza - every morning when they have breakfast.
5/12 Dining room
The dining room (opens in new tab) has a cool, mid-century feel and could operate for ad-hoc work meetings as well as get-togethers with friends.
6/12 Home office
This classic home office nook goes back to basics with a smart bureau (opens in new tab) desk, vintage wooden chair and industrial-style lamp.
Orwell desk from Graham and Green (opens in new tab)
A large glass panel updates the original staircase. The prints on the wall add a fun and characterful feel, while Victorian-style encaustic tiles create a timeless look in this hallway (opens in new tab).
8/12 Dressing room
This decadent dressing wing, part of the master bedroom (opens in new tab) has extensive his-and-hers storage.
A large padded ottoman provides a space for seating and trying on clothes and shoes.
9/12 Master bedroom
This sprawling L-shaped room has been inspired by luxurious hotel suite decor. The Brigitte Bardot, which hangs above the bed, sets the tone for the sophisticated, Sixties mood. Beyond the dressing room (opens in new tab), the space extends into a media den that houses a large television.

10/12 Children’s room
Inspired by a favourite footaball club, Chelsea, the walls are painted (opens in new tab) in a sophisticated blue and white. Bunk beds are for friends to sleep overnight.
11/12 En suite bathroom
The shower room (opens in new tab), with its grey tiles and clean lines, has the look of a modern men's spa.
The Babington House-inspired bathroom (opens in new tab) was designed to be the most luxurious space in the house. The floating wall conceals a generous showerhead, similar to Soho House hotels from around the world. The pale grey marble floor is both grand and indulgent, while the slanted ceiling of roof lights keep the space bright.
