On one of the finest Georgian streets in London stands this spectacular five-floor townhouse filled with art and color. The house is built in 1776 and still retains original features.
The house is decorated in a wonderful eclectic collection of furniture – both antique as contemporary – art, and color. Even though many of the furnishings and decor is antique, thanks to the combination with color and modern art it feels vibrant and exciting.
On the ground floor are two rooms, the main sitting room has bay windows overlooking the garden and virbant blue (almost purple) walls. Paint company Pantone chose a similar blue shade as their color the year 2022.
The second room on the ground floor is this cozy library/reading room painted in a vibrant red shade. Both ground floor sitting rooms have open fireplaces which retain their original chimneypieces around Edwardian hearths.
The lower ground floor is home to a generous open-plan kitchen and dining room. The entire space has limestone slab floors. And with window on two side, it’s a very light room despite technically being a basement room.
True design classics are placed in this room with the Tulip dining table and Tulip dining chairs by Eero Saarinen.
Another color accent in the kitchen with cabinets painted in the same (or almost similar) blue shade as the main sitting room in this house. The kitchen is designed by Smallbone and on the ceiling is a 17th-century oak beam.
The first and second floors each have one large bedroom with bay windows facing the garden. The master bedroom is painted in a lovely light blue shade.
The master bathroom with green panelled walls and stained pine floors.
On the third floor are two more bedrooms, this one painted in vibrant red, a daring but stunning color for the bedroom.
The long garden can be accessed via the kitchen/dining room as well as the main sitting room on the ground floor.
The garden includes a wool-insulated garden studio with underfloor heating and an adjacent workshop/shed.
