In the airy kitchen, the long oak table is an adapted version of The Conran Shop's Biblioteque, designed by Terence for this kitchen. The chairs were rescued from a decommissioned ocean liner, recently reupholstered in pale blue leather to soften the mood.

2/9 Kitchen island
Both Terence and his wife are keen cooks - as evidenced in the industrial-seeming island unit, built for practicality.
3/9 Kitchen shelving
4/9 Dining room
Black Fischel chairs work beautifully with the Saarinen Tulip table, which Terence has had for a long time.
5/9 Living room
The sofa and rug in the living room are Terence's own designs.
The coffee table and chess table are by Benchmark, the Arco lamp is by Achille Castiglione: Twentytwentyone sells them. The room is painted in Farrow & Ball's New White and defined by Blackened on the ceiling.
The ceiling in the study was lowered to create a more intimate working space; large curves for lights have been moulded, lending it a rather space-age feel.
The French Deco metal table in the hallway was bought in the L'isle-sur-la-Sorgue flea market in Provence. The boxes store Terence's collection of butterflies.
The Victorian tub is a favourite place to escape to after a busy day. The basins are set into caramel-hued Italian travertine stone. Shaker brushes, found in an antiques shop in New York, hang in a row over the unusual 'hole' fireplace.
9/9 Customised chair
This chair was redesigned by Terence when it broke - he turned the arm upside down.
