Fitzroy Park

 This stunning house in Highgate designed by architects Stanton Williams already had the beautiful bone structure and muscles for us to add the flesh to. We were asked to style up existing furniture, books etc. So we brought in some key pieces including chairs like the Cherner, Danish side chairs and a Danish ‘yoga’  chair…

Gibraltar Walk

This three bedroom house on Gibraltar Walk, one of a row of converted furniture restoration workshops, was a dream to stage. Situated a stones throw away from Brick Lane, on a quiet side street between Shoreditch and Bethnal Green, it was originally built in 1905 and arranged over four generous floors with a modern staircase…

The Lost House

When we walked into this building it felt like some kind of subterranean Bond villain’s lair. Created by the internationally renowned architect Sir David Adjaye in a former delivery yard in the heart of Kings Cross, The Lost House looks as if 3 huge glass boxes filled with trees and pebbles have arrived from Earth and…

Spencer Courtyard

Award-winning architecture practice Kennedy Twaddle did a fantastic job transforming a former merchant’s yard into a mews of five contemporary homes in Finchley with sedum grooves and intricate brickwork. The exposed ceilings of the double pitched roof, handmade birch ply kitchen and oak parquet give a beautiful feeling of craftsmanship to this build. Huge windows…

Frobisher Court

This bright flat on the third floor of Frobisher Court in Sydenham South East London has spectacular views over central London. It is set into planned gardens in a location renowned for its mature outside spaces with mid-century-tiled communal areas with original hardwood and glass doors and lift. Forming part of Dulwich Estate, it was…

Maidstone

This four bedroomed house with its eye-catching original terrazzo hallway floor was inspired by trips to Wisconsin and its  midcentury architecture. Now still owned by the family who commissioned Kent-based architect Dennis Darbison to realise their dream in 1964, it was created using ragstone from the local quarry and super high spec. cherry-wood panelling. When…

Barnsbury Square

     Slip your shoes off before hitting the stunning oak floor that drifts around the apartments’ main areas at 16 Barnsbury Square. Notice the no expense spared nature of the small details from the security cards and switches to the metal and glass used in the build. We mixed metal, ceramics, glass and wood to…

Barbauld Road

  Recognising our fortunate first in line status when it comes to accessing glorious C20 pieces and modern design that clever lot at The Modern House estate agency kickstarted our styling career by giving us an East Dulwich location to ‘play house’ in a couple of years ago and we have never looked back. What…

Hopton Yard

It was a pleasure to spend a few days immersed in the Suffolk countryside in a hamlet going by the name of Hopton although documented as Opton in the Domesday Book. Nest, a small locally-based firm worked with HAT Projects on this site on the edge of Yoxford, a charming, historic  village sitting between Southwold…

Ryland Road

When we enter houses like this one completed to a design by Clive Sall Architecture (CSA) behind Kentish Town in London, Petra instantly sees space, dividing it up in her mind like an architect, seeing rooms within rooms. Frances is a whizz with beds and furniture often bringing in a key piece, trying out both…
