This Georgian Townhouse in London has finally regained its former glory thanks to a complete renovation by Architecture for London.
Built in 1860 and reconfigured in the 1970s, you can imagine how much careful work went into making this home look so fresh and renewed. Carefully stripping the years of caked paint revealed beautiful original plasterwork, and the clean floors are the result of a thorough sanding and soap-stain treatment.
The period style paneled doors, architraves, and Carrara fireplaces are new additions. The furniture is a blend of midcentury and contemporary.
Modern colors – grey and white, punctuated by green, orange, and yellow – create an energetic sense of contrast. Just check out the cool Featherston style armchair updated with bright buttons to see what a difference a contemporary palette can make.
Bright social spaces give way to more intimate private sanctuaries. The matte black bedroom is very smart: the inky void of the walls and ceiling absorbs light and ensures a peaceful rest. Even the bathroom utilizes a dark and comfortable monochromatic theme.
Truly, this expertly updated Georgian Townhouse can provide a wealth of usable interior design ideas, especially for those who need to update an older interior with contemporary styling but aren’t sure where to begin.
