Four-Storey Converted Warehouse in London

This whimsical Four Storey Converted Warehouse has a rich history worth sharing – a story told through scuffs and scratches, bricks and beams. The home was once a furniture factory built by John Barr & Sons in 1865 – the newest restoration is the work of skilled architect Andrew Fielder.

Remnants of paint in orange, yellow, blue, and green add character to the exposed brick walls. We love the soft kaleidoscopic effect. Worn, irregular timber floors look as if they would be soft and warm to the touch.

Our favorite space is the ground floor studio. We would probably feel a certain temptation to paint the bluish resin floor but the stable doors, fireplace, and elegant bookshelf make the space seem homey and livable. A playful oversized bullfrog head hangs mounted above the fireplace – such a fun touch! The vintage steel desk completes the picture.

The other rooms of this Four Storey Converted Warehouse offer plenty of useful interior design inspiration too. Crisp white blinds and radiators balance the carefully revealed walls, with graphic prints providing sharp modern contrast. Furniture freely mingles across eras.

We just love the execution here. Which elements would you borrow? Let us know in the comment section below – we’re always excited to hear about your favorite interior trends and techniques.
