London House with Modern Interiors that Will Make you Want to Live There

By • Jan 30, 2018

Blue House is a contemporary home located in Dartmouth Park, a district in north London, England, United Kingdom. It was designed by the Notting Hill based architectural firm De Rosee Sa, and completed in 2015. The property covers a total ground area of nearly 170 square meters, or over 1,800 square feet.

The clients had previously resided in the upper maisonette of this house, and when their downstairs neighbors decided to leave, they completed the purchase of the ground floor, greatly increasing the ground area of their home. To help unite the two spaces, they enlisted De Rosee Sa, and to return it to its original function as a three storey townhouse.

The first challenge the architectural firm tackled was increasing the proportions of the interior spaces in order to give the house an enhanced sense of space and grandeur. In order to do this, the low floor to ceiling height of the first floor was modified, in order to increase the spaces and give the rooms more luminosity.

The interior décor is done in a muted color palette consisting of different shades of gray against rich wooden floors. Some darker pieces add touches of contrast, such as the fireplace in the living room and a dark wooden table in the bedroom, making the spaces feel more dynamic.
