A Light-Filled Maisonette Home in London

In the Brockley area in London stands a beautiful light-filled maisonette home. The two-bedroom house was built in the 19th century and features typical Victorian features.

The current owners have carefully restored the Victorian house, incorporating new elements that fit right with the original historic features. The rooms are flooded with natural light thanks to the large Victorian sash windows.

The 70 square meter apartment is divided over two floors, with an open plan living room, kitchen, and the first bedroom on the lower floor. On the second floor lies the other bedroom and the house’s bathroom.


At the front of the house lies a generous open-plan living room and kitchen. Two large sash windows flood the room with light onto the weathered pine floorboards.


You can see that this is a room for entertaining as a large wooden dining table sits in the center of the room. With two benches instead of chairs on the long side of the table, it doesn’t feel too big for the room.


A nook in the room is now home to the kitchen with dark gray painted cabinets, a solid oak worktop, and a Belfast sink.


There’s no door between the living room and hallway which adds an open feeling to the spaces.


The hallway is painted in “Red Earth” by Farrow and Ball.


On the top floor, under the slanted ceiling, lies the master bedroom. The room has a neutral base (“Lime White” by Farrow and Ball), but color is added through the velvet blue headboard and orange/red bedding.


Under the slanted ceiling, custom-made wardrobes have been added that have been painted in “Green Smoke” by Farrow and Ball.


The bathroom is a moody space with white-painted wooden floorboards and deep blue walls.


From the front door you enter this narrow hallway with a wooden floor and a stucco moulded archway.
