SEVENTIES REVISITED

Take inspiration from a colourful view over a garden square, combined with a love of the '70s and '80s eras and what do you get? A contemporary classic that references decades past to give the homeowners a warm and welcoming four-bedroom family home that is familiar and new. Using colour, texture and large-scale pieces of furniture to ground the rooms, Studio L created a carefully curated homage to more recent decades within a Victorian home.

Studio L worked in collaboration with TateHindle architects on the substantial period renovation of this Grade II listed Victorian home that was about to be recorded on the Heritage at Risk register in Westminster by Historic England. The developer was Alchemi Group.

 Bringing the hues of the garden square into the home was the starting point. When Laura saw the movement of the bold pattern in the area rug which also consisted of the exact colours of plum, chartreuse and rust that she was looking for, she knew; “it was meant to be”.

 Planning permission was secured for a contemporary glass extension which opens onto a large terrace to create a 360-degree indoor/outdoor entertaining space during warmer months. The bespoke furniture and area rug was made specifically for the family room in a rust orange to give it that earthy 70's vibe. The wallcovering mimicked the movement in the area rug in the dining room and the textiles connect the fundamental colours between the two spaces.

 The formal sitting room on the first floor of the home has the best view of the garden square and feels as if you’re floating over it. Studio L wanted to extend the atmosphere and infuse it with a wild glamour suited for the modern English bohemian. All textiles refer to materials found in nature. A custom chartreuse mohair area rug is the foundation, the intention being a luxurious blanket of lawn. The Pierre Frey curtains have a stylised floral print with an iridescent weft threading, the wallpaper imitates crystalised rocks and the taxidermy Ibis is a nod to the building’s green plaque former resident, famous ornithologist William Henry Hudson.

 The master bedroom is serene and tactile, making way for the beloved Up 5 chair by Gaetano Pesce to be the central focus as you walk into the space. The chair recalls a fertility goddess and has stood the test of time to be considered a piece of art. It required a crane and closing the corner of the cul de sac to get the chair through the sliding windows!
