Spanning over four floors and boasting an impressive 260 square meters, the London Townhouse is situated in the historical centre of London. Originally built in 1845, the idea was to respect the room layout orientated around the original staircase whilst bringing in modern elements. Enter Kelly Hoppen, MBE, the interior designer, author, and proprietor of Kelly Hoppen Interiors, served with a challenge to transform this stunning Georgian terraced house into an elegant canvas for an art collection. The house itself includes two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a stunning conservatory, a gym, and a beautiful outdoor space. With this in mind, Kelly used black bamboo floors throughout, linking the rooms together for a more fluid feel. Furthermore, this is complemented by the addition of strong lines with the joinery and the light, bringing the modern twist needed by the art collection to dialogue with the traditional features.
