I never got around to share with you the new pared-down and natural look of our London home after the renovations (you can see various stages of the renovations here).
Luckily, we managed to squeeze a photo shoot with Photographer Michael Paul who had already photographed the house for ELLE DECORATION before the renovations and the new house got featured in Grazia UK (yeah!!).
As many of you reside outside the UK, I have managed to get hold of the pdf to share the whole feature with you…
Downstairs, we gave the existing grotty kitchen a massive makeover (read all about it here), painted the brown beams in white and added a large floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the garden.
Handmade ceramics on display add warmth & textures to your home
The metal shelf in the bottom left corner came from a vintage store in Hammersmith.
After thinking for a split second to get rid of it, I used it to display my collection of handcrafted ceramics.

In the lounge, we opened up the wall between the front and back room and got rid of one chimney.
A very dusty job. However, one that contributed to creating the open-plan, minimalist room, filled with natural light we aimed to achieve.
Below, the black turning coffee table was from Amara and the Moroccan rug from Larusi, a company that specialises in genuine Berber rugs -pricey but incredibly soft and beautiful-
If you haven’t quite the budget, MADE has some great rugs here.
The large Koushi pendant light was from my shop. However, I will sell two of the small versions soon as I’m redecorating our lounge in France.
In our previously all-white bedroom, I introduced textures with soft furnishing, stonewashed linen and natural wood decorative objects.
You can see more pictures of our bedroom after its makeover in this article.
CHECK THE NEW COLLECTION AT EVE
Our tadelakt bathroom is one of my favourite design projects.
The grey bath towels are from The White Company.
All the pretty body care bottles are from Compagnie de Provence and I saw today that they are going to be stocked in END‘S first flagship store in London.
The Corian bathtub and basin are by Antonio Lupi and were flipping expensive!
Since then, I found a similar basin design but more affordable for our bathroom renovations in France. I will share details with you soon.
I think I have covered pretty much everything.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment. Or if you love what I did with the house, please leave a comment too :-)) I love reading them.
