A One-Bedroom Apartment with Colorful Rooms

On the ground floor of an Edwardian terrace house in London lies this wonderfully bright one-bedroom apartment. Every room has color touches and the home still shows historic features.

The house has been recently restored with much attention to the history of the house. The apartment has warm wooden flooring, original stained glass windows, and a large bay window in the bedroom.

In every room, you’ll find color, from a purple sofa to pink and yellow walls. The apartment is small with 48.8 sq. meter / 525 sq. foot living space bút it also has a garden so in the warmer months you can extend your living space outdoors.


From the entryway you immediately enter the sitting room. Focal point of this room is the late Victorian fireplace with specimen stone inserts. The purple sofa adds a wonderful color pop to the room.


A small home office has been created next to the fireplace. The patio door with original stained glass windows lead to the garden.


The gray and yellow kitchen has the same original stripped floorboards as in the sitting room. The bay window with patio door leads to the garden space.


The wooden gray kitchen cabinets are combined with Maia worktops and a composite sink.


Opposite the kitchen cabinets is a dining area with cane Marcel Breuer Cesca Chair’s.


The kithen walls are painted in “India Yellow” by Farrow & Ball. Which is a wonderful yellow hue that adds a lot of warmth to a room.


At the front of the house is the master bedroom. The walls are painted in a light pink hue called “Setting Plaster” by Farrow & Ball.


The pink bedroom has a bay window, which is now used for a baby crib. On either side of the bay window are niches which provide plenty of storage.


On the left they placed a vintage dresser. And on the right is a larger niche which is used as wardrobe space that can be shut off with a curtain.


The bathroom has sage green walls and black and white chequered tilework.


At the back of the house is a lovely garden. The well-established planters sit among a gravelled patio and decked terrace above. 


The garden can be entered through the kitchen (on the right) and the living room (on the left).
