What: A four-storey house, designed by the famous Kelly Hoppen. The brief – a twist of Kelly’s signature style of neutral luxury, and to create an eclectic mix of new and old.

Where: London

Why we love it: Luxury need not be ostentatious; it can be understated and chic. The neutral tones used in this home achieved just that.

Achieve glamour with a statement lamp, and luxurious shades of grey and silver.

Flowers are an easy way to brighten up the home.

Although it kept to a monochromatic theme, fabric and texture – seen here on the sofa and railings – add depth to the home.

The tiles were laid in a herringbone pattern.

Achieve a classic contemporary look with panelled cabinets and a marble countertop.

The panelling continues in the bedrooms too. 

Another feature of a contemporary look – clean lines and fuss-free fittings.

Marble was the main choice of natural materials, throughout the bathroom.
