Nothing's more satisfying than a home packed to the brim with clever storage and colour ideas, and this property has that in bags.
This four-bedroom home in Highbury, North London is filled with ideas and style galore. Check it out...
The spacious hallway is the perfect entrance to this home – the useful bench with room for shoes adds extra space and, while the patterned tiles and unexpected hit of yellow make for a fun and happy welcome.
The showstopping open living room is just off the hall, with the double height ceiling creating an amazing sense of space. Above is the mezzanine with a snug area, but it's the Crittall-style window separating the two that's genius – allowing light to flow from both sides of the house, preventing dark and dreary corners.
Down a few steps from the living room, the kitchen is a masterclass in intelligent design with bespoke narrow in-built shelving and cupboards, perfect for both storage and showing off collections of Kilner jars and pretty packaging. The ovens, microwave and coffee machine are built in, too, meaning enough space for the eat-in dining area.
We also love the patchwork style mismatched tiling, adding that extra sense of fun to a functional space.
This unique and clever home shows us that stairways should not be ignored! By adding a skylight and floor to ceiling mirrors, the space is light and airy, making it as much of a talking point as any 'proper' room in the house.
The master bedroom is actually a master suite (fancy!), with a walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom leading off this top floor room. The really special touch here is the balcony outside the glass doors, a luxurious addition that's perfect for morning coffee or an evening sundowner.
The private garden shows off the fact that nearly the entire back of the house is glass – light and views galore!
