I think many of us have a love/hate relationship with social media. In my case I am continiously frustrated that my followers don’t see my content. BUT you can still find a lot of beauty on social media.
Instagram is a great place for people to share their homes. I have already shared multiple homes that I discovered on instagram on the blog. And today I will add the moody maximalist home of Reece & Paul (also known as @littleedwardian) to that list.
Reece and Paul live in an Edwardian home in Southeast London. And they are slowly renovating their house into a moody maximalist dream home.
On their instagram page you can follow their project and get inspired by their moody, modern design aesthetic.
The cozy sitting room has black walls. But by leaving a white border at the ceiling it still feels light and the ceilings look higher because of this.
HELLO skylight! Like many historic homes in London, this townhouse also has a modern extension. A large skylight brings so much natural light to the room. Steel framed sliding doors lead to the modern garden.

When Reece & Paul bought this house it had a narrow red kitchen (you can see that here). They opened up the room and extended the house to create this stunning open-plan kitchen, dining and tv room.
The terrazzo worktop and backsplash is such a fabulous maximalist feature. By combining it with a light cabinet color it doesn’t feel overwhelming at all.

A light bedroom with Portland stone ceiling paint and Cole & Son “Nuvole” wallpaper. The shelves add a maximalist bling touch to this room.
Take a look at these moody homes:
- A moody luxurious attic apartment in Amsterdam
- A moody English-style home in Toronto
- A moody cabin and snug designed by Heidi Caillier
- The cozy eclectic home of Shelley Carline
The house may be historic. But Reece & Paul added a modern garden full of cozy seating spots.
