Take a look inside this eclectic Victorian terrace in London

Cosy living room

Despite the white palette, this living room is a cosy haven thanks to the relaxed  sofa fake fur rug, fireplace, antique mirror, and accents of vivid red. 


Classic hallway

The wall from the living room to the hallway was knocked down to increase the amount of light in both spaces. Antique finds bring a classic look to the design, while the black wooden floor contrasts with the white walls for a touch of drama.


Rustic kitchen sink

The small basement kitchen, dug out by previous owners from the original cellar, has a surprisingly light feel. The white walls, pale granite worktops and open shelves marry beautifully with rustic touches to create a French farmhouse feel.


Farmhouse-style kitchen

Weathered slate floor tiles, painted brickwork and old-style metal signs inject a rustic vibe into this kitchen.  Blackboard paint has here created a practical area for lists and notes to be written. 


Fairytale bedroom

This bedroom oozes fairytale charm, with a bespoke wallpaper and French-style statement bed being the focal points. Soft furnishings that reflect the tones in the wallpaper, along with boudoir-style lights complete the look. 


Feminine bedroom accessories

Bespoke floral wallpaper has been used on the opposing bedroom wall for a cohesive look. A Tailors dummy, the distressed chest of drawers and gilt accessories bring feminine charm and a shabby chic vibe to the room. 


Dramatic bathroom

The black roll-top bath is the centrepiece of this bathroom particularly striking against an all-white background. The period taps and metal sign enhance the classic design of the bath, while the modern palette adds a pleasing contrast. 


  1. Really like how the pale granite worktops work in this small kitchen and that is looks so light.
