Tour a Lovely London Victorian Updated With Color and Pattern
After moving into their Victorian London home, this couple in their 30s needed help adding color, storage and features for entertaining guests. Not knowing where to begin, they searched Houzz for help. A Houzz concierge — part of the Live Connections feature available to Houzz Pro members — matched their project needs to, and connected them with, designer Josephine Lecoufle-Vinet.
Lecoufle-Vinet brought in warm blues and greens to add bold color without veering too cold. In the kitchen, new cabinets add storage and style, while a short peninsula jutting from a bank of navy blue cabinets creates an intimate breakfast area and a spot for guests to gather around during parties. Lively patterned floor tile perks up the atmosphere.
In the dining room, wallpaper mimics the look of wood paneling to create texture and coziness around a large table where the couple enjoy playing board games with friends. A custom floating built-in in the nearby living room features open and closed storage. Lecoufle-Vinet gave the couple’s bathroom a seaside vibe with wavy blue wallpaper and teal fish scale tile in the shower. And wallpaper on the ceiling in the warm green bedroom adds a fun element that maintains a cozy vibe.
