A quirky home in London full of character and colour

This enchanting home is based in South London (Hampton Court) and was designed by FORBES RIX. Requiring a total reconfiguration and refurbishment of a very large period property, the design studio were able to create a quirky and eclectic family home using personal artefacts that they had acquired over the years.

Thoughtful spatial planning was essential to transform what was essentially a gutted shell of a building into a sumptuous yet informal home, perfect for entertaining.
