Sited in the grounds of a Victorian mansion block in Hampstead, north London, United Kingdom this newly built home was bought by a young family from a property developer. It has a footprint of 200 m² (2 153 ft²) with 2.7m ceilings. In 2016 Black & Milk upgraded the interior of the Modern New Home using a neutral colour scheme and rich textures.
Natural tones run throughout, with each room boasting its own palette. The living room looks to autumn for inspiration, with earthy colours, burgundy accents and pops of black that tie in with the window frames. In the guest bedroom, shades of light blue, salmon and green combine. The child’s bedroom is mostly neutral, but one wall is papered with an oversized floral pattern to bring in the ‘wow’ factor. Dusky-rose curtains complement, to create a scheme that’s unexpected and not remotely babyish. The master bedroom is the most colourful, with a natural fibre wallpaper in woody brown teamed with a bed upholstered in dark blue-grey fabric. The bright mustard colour of its piping runs onto the velvet sofa, and all the tones are balanced by pale walls and floors, for a scheme that’s original, but also relaxed.
