    The table is property of our clients, so we cannot comment on its provenience

    We were not involved in the sourcing of the headboard. Our clients furnished the rooms over a long period picking from different places

Can I do anything about draughty floors?“If you need to insulate a wood floor because of draughts, the local planning authority will require you to carefully number and set aside the floorboards,” Lior says. “You’ll need to install the insulation without any damage to the floor joists and then carefully put the boards back in their original location.”“Obtain professional advice on this beforehand,” Kevin advises. “This will ensure the process won’t adversely affect the thermal balance and breathability of the house or create condensation issues.” “Whatever you have in mind for your listed building,” Lior concludes, “make sure you have all the drawings and information describing the work you want to carry out, so the local planning authority can assess and guide you through what can and what can’t be done.”Tell us…Have you carried out work on a listed building? What kind of negotiations were involved with conservation officers and Historic England (or your local equivalent)? Share your experiences in the Comments section.

Jo Simmons added this to Houzz Tour: A Georgian Home in London Has an Incredible Transformation3 December 2015

The floorboards are pine on the top floor, rather than the oak that was installed below. ‘These boards were hidden under carpet or lino,’ says Maiorino. ‘We don’t think they are Georgian, but probably date from the Victorian period.’ This room was probably always intended to be a bedroom for the family that owned the property. ‘Space was at too much of a premium in London to keep servants up here,’ says the architect. ‘Some staff would have lived in the house, but it’s most likely they would have been in the basement.’
