Mellow Yellow Highbury, London

A newly married couple approached me having just bought a brand new house in north London. It ticked all the boxes, with lots of space and plenty of bedrooms for a potential family and visiting parents. Sadly though the house lacked soul and was a little too open plan for their lifestyle. Each had strong opinions of how they wanted the house to look but their opinions often differed. That’s when Studio Hopwood stepped in. The couple had clearly done their homework using previous projects and a high level of creativity amongst us began and resulted in a home that stands out from the crowd. It appears that the weekend Times newspaper and Living Etc. magazine are in agreement as both have featured the house and my clients enjoying their life in it.

We modified the bog standard kitchen with jazzy tiling and some extra bespoke pieces to make it look special. The open plan living room was split using Crittall windows and a sliding door to create a TV room finished in dark moody walls and punchy cushions. The master bedroom certainly hits the glamour button. In the hallway we went for an uplifting yellow. Its daring but I think we’ve got away with it. I love this house with its mix of vintage and special modern pieces all carefully chosen amongst us all. Have a look yourself, I just hope that I have offered a little inspiration for what can be done with a modern home.
