“Settled amongst one of London’s hidden Georgian terraces along Varden Street is this exemplary three-bedroom townhouse, meticulously renovated by historical paint expert, Pedro da Costa Felgueiras of Lacquer Studios. The award-winning design represents an artful fusion of early 19th-Century detail and thoughtful modern concessions that combine to create a wonderfully individual central London home.
It is eminently clear that the original fabric of the building is fundamental to the owner’s renovation. Original fittings such as panelling and staircases were repaired during the process, and the rear gardens reinstated on what had become a car park. Bespoke paints that were hand-mixed using linseed oil and antique powder pigments enabled da Costa Felgueiras to create historically relevant tones to rejuvenate the interiors.”
There is something about the old Georgian townhouses in London’s East End especially those that have been sympathetically restored/renovated so that although life’s mod cons are well catered for it is almost as if time has stood still. Varden Street, London E1 via The Modern House.
