Islington House

This Georgian house in Islington had been stripped of its original features prior to being acquired by our clients. They had lived and travelled abroad extensively, and had amassed a unique collection of art and objects. Unafraid of colour, their collection of aboriginal paintings with earthy red, pink and orange tones was the catalyst for choosing a contrasting vibrant teal colour for the Georgian-inspired panelling and cabinetry in the double reception room.

We used vintage and antique furnishings from various periods and styles to evoke a sense of history. We furnished the house almost entirely with vintage pieces sourced from markets both in the UK and abroad, creating a colourful and eclectic mix which reflected our clients’ diverse backgrounds and worldly experiences.

The basement kitchen and dining room was painted a vibrant leafy green and hand-stencilled with a geometric frieze. An industrial dining table, French café chairs and a contemporary graphic rug contribute to the playful mix of colour.

In contrast, the master bedroom has a soft colour palette with textured fabrics and warm multi-coloured accent pieces.

The master bathroom had a distinctly vintage aesthetic, where we made use of reclaimed teak laboratory tops to the vanity and the bath, and vintage apothecary bottles in the windows for privacy.

Our clients' love of tropical climates influenced this study and guest bedroom, where we adorned the walls with textured bamboo wallpaper, furnished with rattan furniture and tropical plants, and souvenirs from around the world.
