Cozy Industrial Home in London
If you believe that cozy feeling with industrial design don’t go together then you should see this family home. This is a A double-fronted Edwardian house in north London. The distressed finish is on full display in the living room with the bench-cum-shelf made from 150-year-old oak. The juxtaposition of tactile textures like the velvet sofa against concrete and stone complete the look.
The corner has a mid-century vibe, with a pair of Fifties Danish cocktail chairs in front of the massive slate fireplace. Instead of a drinks cabinet, bottles are arranged on an occasional table – very Mad Men.
In the kitchen the design is based on the style of a Manhattan loft and all things industrial. The kitchen is the hub of the house, with sightlines into the dining room and living room, so the family always feel connected. The units are deliberately simple, to let the artwork and crockery do the talking.
The floor is a patchwork album covers, printed on to vinyl and covered in resin. The Seventies vibe is enhanced with orange walls and hippie-luxe cushions.
This boutique hotel-inspired bedroom mixes urban and romantic, teaming brick walls with embroidered linen.
Crystal light fittings provide a twist on the concrete theme in the bathroom. The stool adds a splash of wake-me-up pink.
The fireplace was one of the few original features left in the house when the owners moved in. The mirror and its cast-iron surround were moved from the ground-floor study. Black decorative feature wallpaper has been used all around the room to give it a gothic vibe.
A favorite photograph taken at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium has been blown up and abstracted to create the ultimate picture wall in this modern kids bedroom.
