Black and White

When deciding on colour for contemporary modern living, think of a black and white photograph. Black and white are both basic colours but in modern design less is more, don't be afraid of that space, let your eye be your guide in free flowing composition, and let your pieces of furniture do the talking; mono is master of all...

Creature Comforts

Artist Kelly McCallum adores animals, and loves having them around in her eclectic East London apartment. Just don’t expect to see them all scampering about… “I was looking for somewhere with history and an industrial edge,” says McCallum of home. “This building had been a factory and had cement floors and pillars; I restored some of the organic feeling by uncovering the columns.” Against this utilitarian background she has put her collection of metal and steel furniture, some from offices and other pieces from hospitals... view interior feature Pin It Now!

Although their listed Welsh vicarage, built in 1850, is chocolate-box pretty on the outside, it oozes 21st-century style within. Jim and Chloe’s labour of love has saved the place from a sad and shabby decline, transforming it into a fresh and contemporary family home... view interior feature Pin It Now!

The tiny one-bed flat is the back of a former laundry in Clapham. The flat is the work and home of Tim Gosling, who trained as a theatre designer and, for almost 20 years, worked with the Queen’s nephew viscount Linley before 4 years ago starting his own company... view interior feature Pin It Now!

Base Camp

When adventurers Jo Vesty and Steve Brooks stopped globetrotting and decided to start a family, adapting their West London house became a challenge all of its own. Their home is very much about embracing the challenges of family life full on, and the house has been subtly but clearly divided between the children’s fun, colourful spaces and the more sophisticated grown-up areas. We hadn’t intended to do much in the way of alterations but the project grew in that sort of, ‘Oh, actually, could we…?’ sort of way... view interior feature Pin It Now!
