This house in Camberwell combines different design decades, new and distressed finishes and light and dark design elements to create a striking, bright and cohesive living space.
The neutral champagne coloured oak boards used here are new in stock extra wide Argonne oak. We are the only company in the United Kingdom to offer these very wide boards – sometimes referred to at Heart Oak – at a low price of £165 + vat per sq m.
Located a stone’s throw from Myatt’s Fields park, this 400 sq m Victorian terraced house contrasts new and distressed finishes while honestly retaining original features where possible.
Visitors enter the property and are immediately greeted by stripped panelling, spindles and newel post on the stair case. Underfoot the long – up to 5 meter – strips of Argonne oak guide their guest into the home.
A newly built extension brings light into the living room where the Argonne oak’s neutral tones reflect and illuminate the space and furniture. Dark, bold chairs compliment the scene, where teak dressers loom large and weighty cast iron radiators emit warmth.
The monochromatic Scandinavian theme continues in the details on the mantel with teak candle holders, neutral ceramic pots and wildlife; three songbirds and a monkey designed by Kay Bojesen.
