Would you Love to Live Here? A London Townhouse with contemporary and classic detailing….

Contemporary simple lines fraternise with heritage fanciful details in this renovated townhouse near Hyde Park in London, creating a home with a simple lived-in feel.

In the kitchen joinery is treated as a freestanding element rather than a built in one, which references how kitchens were prior to the first world war, while the rather fabulous light fitting…resembling colourful clouds made from toffee… adds a whimsical touch.

The townhouse is currently for sale, so let's take a look at some more of the rooms….

Arched windows have long been a favourite of mine…and these ones look dramatic in rich black against the pale grey walls. It gives them an edgy feel, and allows the eye to focus on the fine timber transoms on the windows.

With 7 bedrooms, this isn't a small property, and with the fabulous Hyde Park just down the road, it's a family home in rather gorgeous part of London.
