This refurbishing of an upper ground floor flat in a Victorian house in Earl's Court has revealed the original Victorian generosity of the building.
The bedroom and en suite has been fitted snuggly in the back extension to free the rest of the flat and re-create the original front and back room. These two rooms can be flexibly used for entertaining as well as occasional meetings. The very high ceilings and beautiful window and bay-window are celebrated by a giant arch linking the two rooms. It frames each window and lets the light from both sides to flood both rooms.
A masculine colour palette of muted blue and taupe is enlivened with strong red cabinets and worktops. A dark brown rubber floor spreads throughout the flat; it is treated to have a semi-polished finish which reflects the light. This colour is also found in the tiling of the wet room.
