Victorian Terrace, Peckham
Collaborating with an architect and contractor, we helped to transform this Victorian terraced house in Peckham into a wonderful new home for our client.
“Leo lives up to her design ethos. She listened closely to how I wanted to use my house and carefully planned each room to maximise its potential and liveability. Leo has seriously improved my home in ways I never would have considered without her.”
The house layout needed reviewing and in order to create a new kitchen and shower room downstairs, we proposed removing the chimney breast on both the ground and first floors to create additional space at the back of the property. To assist in the structural remodelling, we bought our regular architect collaborator Morizzo & Co onto this project.
Our client let us make some bold colour choices throughout, most notably in the deep orange-brown colour for the front room. Statement encaustic tiles from Popham Design feature throughout the house: in both of the new bathrooms and in the hallway. We turned the third bedroom into a study with sofa bed, so that this spare room could be used as a home office or for an occasional overnight guest. Our client had a tight budget for furniture sourcing and we helped him find unique vintage pieces alongside the best high street furniture we could find.
