Historic Islington

The brief given to Charlie for this project was a complete upgrade and refurbishment of a Grade II listed Georgian terrace house in Islington. The client knew the property had potential but realising this would require overhauling the property from rooftop to below-ground drainage.

As you would expect a sympathetic and skilled eye was required to reinvigorate this historic beauty as all the original features were to be retained and restored, including the windows.

The basement level kitchen-dining room was redesigned to allow direct garden access to the new Yorkstone city garden adding to the usability of the space. The original family furniture married well with the modern classic kitchen styling. For added ‘wow factor’ colourful Moroccan plaster was used on the bathroom walls to give a clean artisan finish which perfectly complemented the marble floors.

What the client thought: “We were overseas during the renovation and would have never tackled our project without Charlie. She’s 100% hands on and that makes the difference. We are thrilled at the results.”
