A modern London townhouse transformed with pattern on @thouswellblog

This shot of the living room in the modern renovation of this London townhouse perfectly encapsulates the new style of this home: the ornate crown moulding remains while the floor was re-stained and contemporary pieces and bold patterns infused into the room. The room plays with the contrast of organic shapes and angular lines, from the modern chandelier to the graphic triptych above the fireplace. I also love that the minty-green of the door adds a soft green to the room on the left-hand side of the shot. The second half of this long room is shown below (notice the edge of the marble pedestal table at the bottom):

These hallway tiles are marvelous! I love that the contrast between the stair risers and steps create another variation on the bold striped pattern seen in the living room. In the last photo you can see the whole back of the house but in this shot, you can see a sliver of one of the beautiful metal casings on the windows. Keep scrolling for more great tiles!

You may have seen this bathroom on Pinterest – I’ve pinned it before before but I had no idea what the rest of the home looked like until now!  It looks as if the master suite is in the attic, in a loft setting. It’s one of my favorite ways to use an attic – the sloped roofs make the room so cozy.

The back patio is open yet private, with a beautiful green wall (including several birdhouses)! And I just noticed that I spy the same rug that’s in my bedroom in the living space through the foremost window…

  1. Wouldn’t it be lovely to own a little London townhouse. I haven’t seen one that I haven’t loved.
