Remove walls, add light. While literally a great approach to remodeling a space to call home, perhaps it is also sage advice for living well.
But back to this Victorian artist’s studio in north London that was remodeled by Vogue UK curator Robin Muir and his partner Paul Lyon-Maris. If one wasn’t to look out the windows, it might be easy to mistake this space for a cozy home in the country. And with the hardwood floors, high ceilings, ample natural light country/farm touches such as the farmhouse sink and Aga stove, this urban sanctuary is the perfect escape to relax after a busy day out and about in the bustle of one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world.
I especially love their library (just below) with the nearly floor to ceiling bookshelves, fireplace and plush furniture – complete with a spotlight location for a featured piece of art and a statement chandelier.
The entire home is a joy to look through if nothing else because it looks like is an actually lived in, relaxing place to call home. Be sure to read the entire interview and see a few more images as it was featured on House & Garden.
