A Warm Muted Color Palette in a Victorian House

In the heart of Bellevue Village, in the Wandsworth Common Conservation Area in London, stands a beautiful Victorian house. Built as part of Smith’s Terrace in c.1869–70 in the neoclassical style by Henry Smith, it has a double-fronted exterior that makes it stand out from the rest of the buildings.

The 1,723 sq ft Victorian house is divided over three floors and features beautiful period features, antique furnishings, and a warm, muted color palette that suits the architecture extremely well. With rustic wooden floorboards, fireplaces, and built-in bookcases, every room in this house is cozy and inviting.

The house comes with a lovely patio garden with bistro seating and is surrounded by plants that add privacy and a natural vibe in the center of London.
