LLI Design has recently completed a total refurbishment of a 3 story Victorian townhouse on a leafy residential road in Highgate, a desirable residential area of North London.
The brief for the studio was to create a warm, comfortable home with modern touches. Although the house was in reasonable condition, the joinery and fittings throughout the house were dated, had been well used and looked tired. Many of the period features had been stripped out and those that remained had not been maximised. The house lacked character and personality although it benefited from 'good bones,' nicely proportioned rooms, a delightful garden and a handsome exterior.
LLI Design felt that more could be made of the period features, enhancing some and reinstating others to bring out more of the Victorian feel of the property. By subtle changes to the spaces and by adding texture, color and interesting material choices LLI Design was able to create a warm, comfortable and welcoming family home. The studio has achieved a harmonious and calm aesthetic throughout with modern touches within a timeless design.
