An exceptional home for a couple of collectors in Notting Hill.

All the books still to be read, all the paintings still to be hung, family heirlooms - oh so charming - but so difficult to place. Life is rich and layered and not color coordinated. We love clients with eclectic tastes, artistic infatuations and tons of books.

The top-to-bottom refurbishment and full interior design of a townhouse in Notting Hill is a successful example of Studio 29 multi-disciplinary approach and the product of a combined architectural, interior and garden design approach.

The design process included structural interventions, re-thinking of the layout, detailing of all the missing Victorian original features, interior design, landscaping, lighting and colour consultation in an an orchestrated labour of love in which we involve the clients, the contractors and his team of specialists and a number of artists and artisan who designed and manufactured special pieces for the house.

All the furniture - with the exceptions of a few antiques that were in our clients family since a long time - and light fittings have been specifically chosen for the house but by having them customised and mixed with the clients’ art collection and family heirloom, the result is very personal and original “like no interior designer was involved” as a friend of the family commented. We take it as a very good compliment!

This project has been featured in the national and local press. House and Garden has included it in an issue dedicated to “Five exceptional houses” , where it also made the front cover and The Resident London Magazine has described it as rich of “fresh ideas that sit seamlessly within the period property, eeking out the building’s potential and providing a design narrative that spans decades”. Studio 29 is currently working with the same clients on their holiday home in Norfolk.
