Mix it up
There’s no need to choose between beauty and function when you can have both, in abundance. This is a home that knows how to balance the two. Sleek, contemporary fixtures and practical designs provide everything you need for comfortable, modern living, no corners cut, but this modern backdrop is peppered with wonderful, one-off pieces in all sorts of styles, from all sorts of eras. Right here in the middle of lovely Clapham, itself a charmingly mixed bag of elements affluent and bohemian, get ready to mix up old and new, practical and downright decadent. Outrageous.
Your hosts are a creative pair who own a marketing company. They renovated this house together. They unwind with walks on Clapham Common or a spot of golf.
This home seems to buzz ever so slightly with creative energy. It's the kind of place you'll suddenly rediscover a love of crafts. Good thing there's a big table, then, ready for creative antics – even if that turns out just to be cooking and serving a fabulous meal. The big, clean-cut, modern kitchen flows out to the garden, with flooring spreading from inside to out. Sky lights lend a sleek, contemporary look and feel.
In brilliantly brazen contrast, find the cosy sitting room and other rooms decked out in warm colours and textures, radiating a distinct ethnic vibe. Collected trinkets adorn the shelves of many rooms, and the walls bear vibrant art work in bold colour schemes.
