How space-saving designs made a small Victorian terrace feel much bigger
What makes an interior designer tick? When it comes to designing their Brixton home – vintage finds, modern classics, unusual materials, social spaces, cosy snugs, and a colour palette that transitions from an aged blue grey to a soft putty white.
It’s surprising how much you can fit into a house no wider than a step ladder: stairs made from steel and ply, floors of oak parquet and leather tiles, vaulted ceilings, Carrara marble worktops and densely embroidered roman blinds. These uncompromising choices are transformative.
They create a surprising sense of space and airiness, texture and warmth, pockets of calm and much-needed drama. They resist the obvious and challenge what people expect from a property this size.
