Cover & Introduction
The master bedroom is a neutral room of soft tones and has been furnished with several acrylic items. The owners love this'' barely there'' material and have used it for many items throughout their home.
The coloured glass wardrobe is a great backdrop to these chairs.
The ceiling is acrylic and picks up the colours in the table and bed trim. Very sheer drapes echo the transparency of the furnishings.
Behind the bed a textured artwork adds interest and a narrow fireplace with brass frontage adds a cosy touch for those chilly London nights.
Love this sculptural looking tree.....almost a living artwork.
This large room is serene and uncluttered... the perfect atmosphere to unwind at the days end.
Following on with the mint green theme this sitting room is elegant and stylish with an understated glamour.
one large seating area for family or friends and the menthol colours teamed up with soft whites offer a classy space to relax,
glass units and feature wall shelves team up with some geometric fabrics.
Love this curved chair in reupholstered fabric and new glass backing
The soft colours of the sofa with its contrasting cushions and glimpse of the room beyond.
Bespoke glass flower display and beautiful light fixture bathed in the soft light.
This is the stylish but no-nonsense bathroom of grandfather Bobby... he like nothing better than an hours soak in this large tub (where he often doses off to sleep). Marble and granite combine in harmony in soft biscuit and honey shades.
Masculine simplicity is the look that was requested.. and this room offer just that...coupled with a peaceful atmosphere and a dapple of soft sunlight.
Verging on rustic this room is undoubtable masculine, whilst mellow in its appearance.
The master bedroom has a compact shower room attached with the same tiles found in the bedroom and units in a rich copper tone finish.
No room for a bath... but there's always a large luxury bath in Grandpas' domain....just need to ask nicely if you fancy a soak in the tub.
Probably everyone's favourite room and a place to come together this sunny room is uplifting with it yellow accents.
The yellow blind when lifted allow a view directly into the nursey....perfect for keeping an eye on sleeping Bertie.
The bespoke bird clock is a favourite feature.
The artwork again of birds adds a large infusion of colour to this mainly white space.

View through into the lounge beyond.
Mediterranean in look and feel... this room will cheer even the dullest London day.
