The remaining upper levels are characterized by the characteristic splendor of the Victorian style. The spaces are dark as the black and blue walls of the existing property were preserved while for example a daring sofa Chesterfield mustard stands out and blends with reclaimed furniture and antiques. Various natural materials – which age well over time – have been used throughout the areas adorned with the owners’ contemporary art collection.
The team of Frank & Faber has been working hand in hand with the owner to bring her vision to life through the finishes, the shades of the paintings and the selection of new furniture and accessories, vintage and made to measure. The traditional aesthetic is reflected through the parquet, the large lamps and the fireplaces that were restored, among others.
The master bedroom occupies the first floor which was reconfigured to consist of a dressing room and a private bath room. The second floor houses the children’s rooms with a bathroom and the space loft which was transformed to create a third nursery. In short, in this house in the British capital, the balance was found through the contrasts between past and present, colors and textures, light and darkness.
