When you see pictures of a beautiful house, it's hard to imagine the blood, sweat and tears behind the renovation – especially when the result exudes a charm effortlessly. When Natasha Barry Renovated Clay House, a 3,000 m² white stucco house in Islington, London. Not only was it a real bowel job, it also gave birth a month after the start of construction! Imagine?! I'm pretty sure I was wondering completely until my daughters were at least 6 months old. I certainly did not work on projects of this magnitude! This one bedroom apartment occupies the top floor of the house of clay and has been carefully restored to preserve the original features such as the original wooden beams, the blades floor and attic windows. They play a central role in the beautiful contemporary look and finish. I could not resist the idea of throwing shots before and during the shots, so that you can enjoy the total transformation!
The window frames were painted in blue Stiffkey's Farrow & Ball.
Although few, the images "before" are perfect to show how this apartment has evolved (especially the kitchen being transformed into a bedroom)! Pretty incredible.
I particularly like the kitchen (the handles are amazing!) – and the bathroom.
I also have the impression of having a brand new source book for London!
Is there anything that has marked you?
If you love me as much as me before and after, do not miss these transformations:
A house dated Georgia receives Scandi treatment
a Danish house from the 1950s metamorphoses
A dull interior of the Cape becomes a warm and comfortable cottage
Vi his imorgon!
