A home fit for the festive season..

A Victorian townhouse in south London. The ground floor comprises a living room, family room, kitchen-diner, study, utility room and WC. On the first floor is the main bedroom suite and dressing room, plus master en-suite bedroom and a guest suite. On the top floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The lower-ground floor has a games room, cinema room and wine store.

After living in Singapore for five years, the owners of this house, are looking forward to their first ‘proper’ Christmas back home in the UK. Their new Victorian home feels far more fitting for the festive season – a double-fronted gem that’s been extended, reconfigured, dusted off and decked out in an atmospheric mix of deep blues, shimmering teals and gleaming gold and bronze. It’s now ready to play the handsome Christmas host to the family of five.

But first, a major overhaul was needed. The couple hired Qualitas to take care of the redesign and construction, which eventually extended over all four floors. On the ground floor, a dated layout meant that the area at the rear was squandered on a storage cupboard and a WC. And true to their Victorian roots, the rooms lacked any sense of openness or flow. This included the kitchen, which was a narrow room at the side of the house that overlooked a brick wall and had no view out to the garden.
