The interiors are an eclectic blend of styles, colors, textures, and materials. The owners made bold color choices like turquoise and orange. And in almost every room you can expect a bold color accent.

As with many historic houses in London, this townhouse also has a contemporary extension. On the lower ground floor is a bright open-plan living room, kitchen, and dining room. This floor is more modern in comparison to the rest of the house. But despite the change of styles on this floor, you can also see color and texture that makes this home so unique.
