African inspired modern maisonette
Modern 4-bedroom maisonette on the top 2 floors of a 3-story Victorian terraced house in London, curated with a lovely interior that subtly reflects the owners’ African heritage, available for photo, video, film & TV shoots. Featured in Ideal Home magazine.
A coherently designed space that celebrates African art and furnishings and brings in rich textures of fluted oak and concrete, honed terrazzo, and bespoke cabinetry finished in walnut that gives this home a carefully balanced colour palette and a warm, relaxed, earthy feel.
Front door leads upstairs to a beautifully styled large, well-lit, kitchen-diner area that features fluted oak doors and brass details, alongside mid-toned blue cabinetry and cashmere engineered European plank oak flooring, that gives the room an elevated look. Sociable dining table looks out to a verdant back garden full of different trees providing a spectacularly colourful backdrop.
This first floor also has a large master bedroom containing a double bed with a rust-brown velvet headboard paired with pale-pink paintwork that resonates with the colours of African landscapes. Adjacent is a large living room with bespoke deep-blue floor-to-ceiling cupboards plus a golden-brown sofa and another vintage sofa upholstered with soft velvet blue fabric.
Home’s high quality finish continues up into top floor, a converted loft that includes an office with hints of African fabric adorning its curtains and furniture plus a green velvet sofa-bed, bathroom, and 2 large bedrooms decorated with soft greens and pinks, with bedroom at the back featuring floor-to-ceiling doors out to a balcony overlooking its garden.
Modern, contemporary Victorian property with lovely interior that subtly reflects the owners’ African heritage. Verdant back garden full of different trees providing a spectacularly colourful backdrop from first floor level through large window in kitchen.
