A three-storey Victorian terrace in west London with a living room, kitchen-diner and WC on the ground floor, two bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor and a third bedroom and bathroom on the second floor. The owner has left some bricks exposed as a reminder of the building's past. Loud wall art and a bicycle provide an interesting feature around the traditional fireplace.

The owner doubled her kitchen's size by extending into the side return and added glazing at the back and a long skylight on the top, providing a sunny contrast to the front room. A bespoke table, mismatched dining chairs, a stainless-steel range cooker and repurposed chicken-house heaters as lights create a contemporary rustic vibe.

The black wall helps the bath to really stand out in this modern bathroom scheme. Its slightly battered surface catches the light.
