In Barnes’s Little Chelsea there is a lovely and typically english cottage that has been converted into an urban family’s retreat. And what is so great about it? Not only it was styled to maintain some of its original vintage features, the designers actually enhanced them by adding the right modern details and vintage lighting. In the end, the family got a modern cottage with lots of light and a beautiful boutique garden.

As you see more of this family home, you’ll realize that paneling was a key statement, bridging the gap between traditional techniques and contemporary styling. Additionally, vintage furniture now sits comfortably with 21st-centuryy pieces and cutting edge accessories.
“Bespoke kitchen design mixing smart gray wood veneer, modern shaker style glass display units, concrete tops with slick marble backsplash form a show-stopping kitchen/family room.”
“In the front room, another contemporary designed panel wall frames a stunning wood burning stove. Cleverly designed joinery flanks most walls so clutter can be hidden behind secret paneled doors.”
“In the bathroom, vintage chests have been upcycled into vanity units, paired with eclectic lighting & tiles to create the look. The juxtaposition between geometric shapes and natural materials creates a harmonious but interesting backdrop to every room.”
The kids’ bedroom is a small and lovely cottage design paradise. A simple white-ironed bed is paired with a small bedside table and three beautiful suspension lamps. Sometimes, simplicity is the key to a successful design, and this is yet another proof.
