Unique Color Combinations and Design in a London Townhouse

This gorgeous historic Georgian townhouse has been sympathetically restored, but not in the usual way because this house screams fun. Color plays a huge part in this unique and individual home and the bold design choices and joyful individuality spreads across all four floors.

When you enter this incredible 200-year-old four-storey residence, you’ll be welcomed by an unexpectedly creative atmosphere where every room tells a different story. The owners worked with interior designer Benedict Foley and they have married bold paint choices with the Georgian architecture in a way that respects its tradition and also feels modern and fun.
