Master Bedroom, Victorian Terrace in London

Master Bedroom, Victorian Terrace in London

These pictures are of the master bedroom in a project that I recently completed in Battersea. It’s possibly my favourite bedroom to date as I loved the light airy space; it is a West facing room so the sunshine floods in during the day and the soothing colour palette that we chose helps to make it a calming and serene space to relax in day or night.

The art deco accents give the space character; the wallpaper, chandelier and walnut dressing table all were inspired by my love of the 1920s. I loved working with the original features in the room as well as reinstating them where they had been taken out; the fireplace we moved from another room to reinstate this important feature in the master bedroom. In Victorian houses all living rooms and bedrooms would have had a fireplace, as it was their only form of heating. They are usually very decorative and unique, like the one in these pictures.

The cornicing and ceiling rose were also carefully stripped back and then repainted to give a fresh clean finish and I added a number or mirrors for further accentuate the light in the space and reflect the beautiful wallpaper throughout.

The carpet we chose is a super luxurious bamboo blend, which I adore and will definitely be using again. It’s a great way to differentiate between the master bedroom and other bedrooms, as well as adding a bit of luxury to the space.
