Notting Hill Pied a TerreMidcentury Living Room, London
The open plan living room in this flat is light and bright, and the beautiful Georgian sash windows are the main feature. The white oiled oak floor & Carl Hansen Wegner chairs contrast with the original Georgian fire surround, cornice and skirting boards. The contemporary tan leather sofa and sideboard sit happily next to the mid-century armchair & cast iron radiator. Plaster wall lights, a large table lamp and a multi bulb pendant provide layers of light when required.

The living room, for example, felt drab and dated, with an old carpet and 1980s joinery, before she stripped it back to reveal its beautiful architectural elements. Beth redesigned the layout of the flat with the team at Darren Oldfield Architects, being careful to work within the building’s listed status. “The plaster and cornicing were repaired by a specialist, and we were very limited in what we could do in terms of ceiling-mounted light fittings, levelling the floor and altering the plumbing,” she explains.
