A couple named Zoë and Neil have renovated their 1,000 square foot London flat to resemble a more bright, vibrant space filled with botanic beauty. When they first moved into the flat, everything was dark, including the dark wood kitchen cabinets against grey walls. Now the kitchen is light and fun, and the living room is an even brighter focal point of the home. When the sun hits the living room walls the right way, the whole area turns into a pink hue.
- It’s hard to find a family home in London because of a fast-paced market and odd design elements.
- The flat we ended up purchasing in London needed renovations, as well as some personal decorative touches.
- Painting my daughter’s bedroom pink and adding plants throughout the home really perked the place up.
“It’s gone from being a dark flat (every wood surface was a very dark brown—including the kitchen cabinets—and the walls were grey) to one that’s light and fun.“
