I’m not really into this type of interior, but the way Livingetc feature this loft-style home makes me want to try the industrial-inspired design someday. To lift the scheme you could add a vibrant color as an accent.
This Victorian meets New York loft-style home is full of surprises – including a large fig tree growing through the middle of it…
A four-storey late-Victorian terrace in north London. The house comprises a large living, kitchen, dining and study area on the ground floor. On the mezzanine above is a study area, leading to the first floor with two bedrooms and an en-suite bathroom. There are another two bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor. Downstairs in the basement is a wine cellar that holds over 500 wines, a home cinema and WC.
From the outside, the house resembles a fairly routine late-Victorian terrace, so the interior comes as an eye-opener.
Visitors walk through the front door into a huge, stripped-back, opened-up, industrial living space of bare brick and wood that contains the kitchen, dining and living area.
But what really makes the space unusual is the metal staircase, full-length up-and-over windows and enormous fig tree snaking through the middle of the house up to the glass roof. The tree was there before the house and is staying firmly put.
