WR House



A late nineteenth-century terraced house. It originally comprised a three-storey main building with a small cellar and a two-storey back addition, and was occupied by a single family. In recent years, a single-storey rear extension has been added, and the house has been divided into a ground flat and a two-storey maisonette.

The property has great original character and a newer internal layout, with connecting living and kitchen spaces through a wide opening.

The Brief

We approached the project with the intention to not remove any features which were in good enough condition and could be made good or reused. The main focus was to create a more functional kitchen layout, gaining more storage space and a social dining area for entertaining. A general cosmetic refurb consisting of sanding down and repainting all millwork and doors, patching old walls and replacing the bathroom with all new tiles and brass ware.

The property has an abundance of natural daylight through dual aspect windows, in the kitchen and living areas. This grounded the intention of working with this attribute by keeping the scheme in neutral tones, pale yellows and off whites. Infused with a generous amount of contrasting tones and materials create depth and intrigue. Geometric fabrics prints and tile patterns, adds a playful touch to the scheme. Further personalised with a mixed collections of wall hung art and collectable objects.


Bespoke Interior Design

We created a bepsoke kitchen in collaboration wit deVOL. We chose a pale yellow ‘Cord’ from Farrow & Ball’s, dressed the drawers and cupboard doors with hand crafted brass knobs and topped it off with dramatic Italian Arabescato Marble. The bedroom wardrobes are specially designed, using flutted European oak panels with brass detailing withing the frames. The same design is installed in the niches either side of the living room fireplace, with matching oak floating shelves above.

The home is filled with vintage finds, an eclectic collection of artworks and classic Scandinavian mid-moderns classics. Pernille’s own bed design The Walford Bed, is featured in the bedroom, perfectly matching the oak joinery, weaving her Danish heritage with the love of wood and natural materials into an otherwise very quintessential Victorian house.
