Our lovely French clients have lived in this double fronted house for 16 years and, now their children are older, wanted to inject colour and interest to create a sophisticated home that would suit the next stage of their lives. The rarely used dining room was transformed into an inviting library/TV room for their three teenage children to read, relax or to entertain friends. The wall between the existing living areas was taken out, allowing light to flow throughout the ground floor. Throughout the house we overhauled the neutral interiors to align with the taste of our discerning client, who was strongly drawn to depth of colour and marrying of patterns. The end result is a house that feels grown up, layered, and well considered for each individual member of the family.
Designed by Ali Johnson and Alex Keith of Otta Design, this Battersea family home has some really scrumptious colours. I am head over heels for that deep Indian yellow in the library (Paint & Paper Library’s Muga). Photos: Jonathan Bond
