Take a tour of this West London new-build

The owner, who runs a care-home business, bought his five-bedroom, new-build property in 2007. His busy job meant he didn’t have lots of time to decorate so he enlisted the help of an interior design company to furnish and style the house. They included lots of abstract artwork and magnolia for a sleek and minimal look.

A year later the owner met his wife, a bank manager, and they lived with the existing decor for four years until it started to look a little tired. ‘As we had also started a family, it felt like the right time for a change,’ say the owners. ‘We couldn’t wait to redecorate and put our own stamp on the place to suit us and our new family.’ They now share their home with their three children.

The priority was to create smart spaces where the owners could relax and unwind, but these also needed to be child-friendly and practical. The most successful room transformations were the kitchen-diner and the living room, which is now used on a daily basis (previously the owners had to watch TV in the children’s play room).
