PREPPY CHIC

bedroom, design, interior design, interiors, intterior design, master bedroom

WASP style was given the keys to a 3,500 ft2 restored Victorian townhome overlooking a garden square in the tony neighbourhood of leafy Notting Hill. The concept was inspired by the buildings architectural heritage and the areas eclectic history. The result is a joyful and luxurious home that also doesn't take itself too seriously. Traditional forms, bold colours, glamorous textiles, accents and materials were used to colour outside the lines and express personal style with charm.

Studio L collaborated with TateHindle architects on the interior architecture and floorplan layouts of this three storey home. A sensitive and comprehensive restoration took place, bringing the former stucco-fronted home back to life.

 For the dining room, Studio L decided to update the traditional chinoiserie mural and instead chose a wallpaper created by English muralist, Melissa White for Zoffany. The oversized scale of the 17th-century folkloric scene is complemented by a vintage 1980's blue glass dining table by B&B Italia from Talisman.  The brass and teal velvet vintage chairs give it that Hollywood Regency glamour and the Michael Anastassiades tube chandelier make the room an instant idiosyncratic classic.

 Traditionally, the first-floor front room was reserved for formal entertaining in Victorian homes. This was due to the importance of the mouldings and the views onto the square.  However, Studio L felt that a home of the stature should be allowed to have the master suite that felt extremely special and far enough away from the rest of the house so it felt like a private sanctuary.   The walls were covered in Phillip Jefferies suede, the striking silky fabric in a bright gold from Pierre Frey was used to make a statement of grandeur. The modern art, a piece from Miss Bugs, completed the room by standing on its own against the traditional surroundings and furniture.

 Bathrooms are always a favourite for Studio L and it was important to Laura to encapsulate the Victorian spirit but give it that modern-preppy twist. The Victorians introduced ceramics and porcelain and often tiled in white, or rich colours and added tiles with ornate detailing. Instead, tiles in softer hues were combined with basic black and white and applied in a stripe. Rolltop baths and luxurious marble were also used for maximum impact.
