House C on the Livingetc house tours – 19thCentury house
This has to be one of the most striking house I have ever been too. A family home that has a delightful sense of calm that pervades throughout with the use of greenery in every room. A soothing palette of soft whites and organic greens helps set the tone, enhanced further by the quality of the natural light across the four-storey, double-fronted Victorian house in Peckham, in London’s south-east. Home to the artist Liza Giles.
Yet there’s more to it than this: the connections with the large rear garden, perhaps, and the vibrant combination of contemporary elements with many vintage touches. There is also the sense of harmony that stems from an ordered and positive design process. Everywhere within the home tells a story, from taped family photos on the wall to the shoes of the children hanging in the bedroom. Creative design oozes through out with no ceiling. I have to say there are not many people who would let their children draw on their walls except for this artist herself and it is such a freeing look.
For the interiors there are combinations of quite clean, modern pieces and vintage things, as well as more industrial pieces and French antiques. That combination works well and they balance each other out. Leaving you in awe when you stroll through each room.
This house was actually the first I looked around and it honestly blew me away. Take a look through what I saw yourself.
