Take a tour around this stylish yet practical south London home

9 images

The owners bought their Victorian terrace in south London in 2009. It was in desperate need of renovation, the walls were painted in cold blues, yellows and oranges, the bathroom had peach wall tiles and cork flooring and the kitchen had blue Formica units. The owners have since extended the house, going upwards and outwards to create fabulous family spaces. The floorboards have been sanded and painted white, while the walls are painted in varying grey and black tones, creating the perfect backdrop for a calm, serene look. Moving into the house once the initial work was complete, with its all-white walls and floors, was like a dream come true for the owners.
