After the chaos of Christmas I imagine most people are craving clean lines and clutter-free living spaces which is why we have a treat for you today. Leoma Harper from the very aptly named lives with her husband and two children in one of the most incredible homes we’ve ever had the pleasure of sharing on RMS.

Over the years and as the family has expanded we gradually edged our way out of London and bought this house in 2015. The first house we purchased was in Fulham, we then moved to Richmond after I unintentionally fell in love with a house there. However my husband was still keen on having a larger garden and more living space so we starting looking and finally agreed on Hampton Court. I was totally blown away by this beautiful detached victorian villa and its potential! It was built in the late 1800s and originally owned by one of the main land owners in the area, who the road was named after. It was surrounded by the orchards of Hampton Court Palace in its day, but has over time become a residential road. The previous owners had lived in it for twenty years and had basically created a blank canvas to sell, so it needed some character injected into it. The house has well proportioned rooms and a generous ceiling height throughout. The layout is well balanced and gives a wonderful sense space yet presents the opportunity for each room to have its own identity.

The works included new wood flooring throughout, new radiators, opening up covered fireplaces and repainting as everything was grey.We spent the initial four months doing it up, while living on the top floor. I still can’t resist tweaking it a bit even today and have recently added a bit more colour…

I had panelling put on all the lower sections of the walls to add to the character, it already had beautiful coving and ceiling rose. We painted the stair bannister in and had a Roger Oates runner put down the stairs. Its an interesting shape but after quite a bit of research and managed to find a nice bench and sideboard that fit and the most recent purchase was the beaded chandelier. It has the new wood flooring from .
