The owners of this Edwardian architecture townhouse in Bristol, they wanted to transform it into the home of their dreams. Originally, the property had been divided into two large duplexes, so it was time to carry out a comprehensive reform. With the current distribution of the three floors, the tour begins in a kind of mudroom located in a glass cubicle with two entrance doors, one yellow and one blue. The upper strip of this corner stands out for the stained glass windows with floral motifs that extend to the main door, a detail that brings us closer to that style so characteristic of the early 1900s.
The hall, decorated in white and greyish blue, is stately presented with ceiling moldings, a family shoe bench, a Georgian staircase with built-in cabinets and a hydraulic tile floor.
In the simple and discreet bathroom on the first floor, it was decided to leave the copper pipes in sight, matching the taps and a mirror with panels and a metal frame as a tribute to the industrial style.
Notice that the tiles are the same as the hall.
In the living room, the original elements such as the stone fireplace, the ceiling moldings or the herringbone parquet floor, coexist with modern furniture and details such as the ceiling lamp to create a very harmonious eclecticism, all in the same blue that decorates the stairs of the hall.
The kitchen-dining room was conceived as an open space and connected to the garden to become the heart of the house, the place where the family spends more time. In the middle of the room, a central island with a wooden top and two stools for informal meals was placed. Also noteworthy are the Crittall-style glass doors that enhance natural light.
The dining room has that rustic and cozy charm of country houses. To give it shape, an old wooden bench and a couple of chairs painted in a more intense blue that creates contrast were chosen. In the center, a robust natural wood table is surrounded by a pair of high chairs for children.
Following that aesthetic vintage dominating the decor, the master bathroom vanity unit is actually an old sewing machine nestled under a stylish sink farm house. Next to it, a freestanding bathtub with a classic cut in green, rests on a floor of hydraulic tiles.
The same bathtub but in a dark turquoise color with golden taps, stars in the main bedroom, transformed into a relaxing space in front of the window. The walls, painted in two colors, deceive the eye by using white in the perception of height. Next to the bed, a French-style dresser in pastel pink completes a dreamy decor.
The children’s room maintains the ceiling moldings, painting the latter in mauve, and wallpapering the lower area with a mural illustrated with trees to create a very appropriate fantasy atmosphere.
