Colorful walls, perfectly styled shelving and a garden inspired by a Greek villa have transformed this Edwardian semi-detached house in Ealing, West London, into a charming property full of character.
Inside the three-story, five-bedroom home is an open-plan living room and kitchen downstairs, a rear dining room and a front reception room. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, one en suite, plus a family bathroom and separate toilet. The second floor is in the attic of the house with the fifth bedroom and a large home gym.
The owners, Eric Jafari of the hotel and hotel group Birch Edyn and his partner, bought the property in January 2021 during the pandemic. The couple previously worked with international architecture and design studio Red Deer on the Birch and Kingsland Locke hotels, and later asked Red Deer to collaborate on their London home.
The renovation is inspired by the owners’ love for Mykonos in Greece, Tulum in Mexico and Copenhagen in Denmark. Working with the existing layout and with the aim of reducing waste where possible, many areas of the house that were still functioning perfectly were given a light touch, while other rooms were transformed with reclaimed materials and a timeless decor.
There is a bold and confident use of color throughout the house – we love how the front reception room has been transformed with dark teal walls and cabinets, complemented by teal painted floors and furniture from mid-century, including the Instagrammable Side Chair in mustard yellow velvet that adds a wonderful liveliness to the room.
Elsewhere in the house, hues of pale white and kermes oak shelving adorn the interior walls, while geometric Aztec prints adorn the rattan Danish furniture. The open plan living room and kitchen have been refreshed with dark blue painted cabinet doors and a stunning teal painted fireplace. Tall indoor plants bring empty corners to life, while a plethora of artwork makes the home personal and welcoming.
The dining room has a wonderful backdrop of perfectly styled accessories in built-in shelving, serving as a great display for showcasing books, crockery, vases, plants and beverage bottles.
The rooms have also been renovated, with exposed floors and fresh wall paint. The color scheme works well in the large bedroom with white paint covering three quarters of the wall, then a soft blue at the bottom with a gray border that follows the entire room. The artwork completes the scheme, creating a calm and tranquil space.
The bathroom has been upgraded with a circular bath and shower – giving us a major luxury hotel vibe – plus a marble sink and pink floor tiles, while the small WC has been refitted with painted walls in dark red, brass hardware and a marble splashback. Dramatic and moody, this toilet is super stylish and has a big impact.
On the top floor, the home gym is covered in plywood making the space warm and bright, while outside the garden is a cozy and intimate place to relax and unwind with furniture in rattan and a living plant wall reminiscent of the villas of Mykonos where the couple had stayed. in.
Not all home renovations have to be large scale. Through this project, Red Deer showed how lightweight interior design can have a huge impact on a living space, while reducing unnecessary waste.
