An exciting combination of old and new interior design.

This entrance hall is part of a residential project I completed in east Finchley: A victorian terrace house that needed general renovation and expansion. The project included planning, construction and general renovation of the entire house. In a joint decision with my client, I preserved some of the house's original features like the tiles floor and the ceiling cornice works, which preserve the old Victorian charm.

In this picture is a sample of old victorian tiles, which I found under the carpet at the house's entrance hall.

Furthermore, I've created a mood board for the entire living space around that tile colour scheme:

The tiles were polished and restored, new decoration and a modern light fixture that carefully matched the ceiling work were installed. The result is an impressive beautiful original entrance hall and an exciting combination of old and new.

The original coving, rose moulding, and curtain pleat was restored and combined into the living room design to create a balanced look between old Victorian and new combination.

The old heavily patterned Curtin was replaced with a see throw light fabric which brings the light in but keeps the privacy from the street.

The wallpaper was demolished and replaced with light grey paint which gave a bright modern background to the room. A desk and shelves had been fitted to serve the after Corona’s needs to work from home.
