A London Maisonette With Bags of Personality

Even when you're blessed with large rooms, big windows, and period features it's always good to add interest and personality to a home. This beautiful and light London maisonette has that, and more. The interior has been designed by Different Like a Zoo and offers ample entertaining space as well as three bedrooms and a private patio garden. Not to be sniffed at in space starved London. But what grabbed us most of all were the interesting wallcoverings in all of the rooms. From book lined shelves in the living space, to tin tiles behind the cocktail table, to the cocooning wallpaper in one of the bedrooms. All great choices for adding an eclectic feel.


Blinds are always a good choice for large windows as curtains can quite often block too much light. That window seat looks really comfy and inviting and no doubt offers a great view of the street.

A Moroccan style rug on the floor and smaller ones on the arms of the sofa add texture, and the two leather armchairs offer alternative seating without taking up too much space.


An eclectic grouping of objects on the mantlepiece adds even more personality as well as a welcome shot of colour.

The choice of pendant light has made good advantage of the architectural features and shortens the narrow corridor by drawing the eye upwards.

Even he small kitchen has a row of books incorporated into the design and a row of artwork above the cupboards, which also helps to highlight the beautiful ornate cornicing.

Tin tiles provide the interest here and contrast nicely with the marble table and white curtains. Don't mind if we do.

What a welcome haven this bedroom is, with it's dark colours, eastern style lamp and table and pure white sheets and lampshade.

By contrast, one of the other bedrooms is almost minimal in its design.
