Elgin Crescent

For a happy former client, we were delighted to help on a new project in the heart of Notting Hill, restoring and upgrading one of the boldly coloured 19th-century townhouses in Elgin Crescent.

Following a significant programme of architectural redesign – the house had been very poorly renovated by a developer, and our task was to put back an interior will a suitably authentic historic character – we moved on to design the interiors throughout the tall townhouse. We were inspired to create a layered house that blended the spirit of today with the best of 1970s and early 80s English decoration – hessian walls, Morris & Co wallpapers, traditional joinery – an atmosphere that the house had perhaps been inherited from a stylish aunt rather than having a top-to-toe, bland renovation so beloved of the Notting Hill Estate Agent.   A strong sense of colour and pattern abounds throughout, but with the hope that this interior will look as fresh and interesting in thirty years’ time as it does today.
