Large family living and entertaining spaces were a priority for the owners of this period property in North London. The house was stripped back to its shell of external walls and then extended at garden, raised-ground and first floor levels. This created a new dwelling 78% larger than the original. An integrated design scheme included a garden studio, large kitchen/family/reception spaces at garden and ground levels and a series of bedroom suites crowned by a penthouse loft with a view of the Wembley arch.

Our clients expressed a passion for colour and were influential in the progression of the interior design. We chose a terracotta specialist plastered wall finish from Polidori Barbera to transcend the double-height space of the ground floor living room and kitchen below. A gorgeous Bocci pendant light was selected to link the two space further. Throughout the rest of the home, a rich palette of materials was used. This included a beautifully textured Burlington green stone, Elmwood floors and staircase, leather details to the handrails and wardrobe joinery, and a bespoke burnished metal dining table.

Warm and textured colours

I just love the warm and alluring use of colour throughout this home. The orange specialist plaster wall is the statement finish from which the others flow, with the sheer curtains fabric from Zimmer & Rohde, and our favourite Bocci pendant lights in bespoke amber colours.
