This London terrace is a lesson in mixing traditional patterns, heritage colors and modern art

This modern house arranged over three main floors and two half floors incorporating the bathrooms belongs to Andy French, a financial service worker, and her two daughters of ten and eight years. The basement kitchen-dining room leads out to the small garden, while the storage under the stairs has bespoke cat doors. The ground floor is an open-plan room divided into a formal living room, TV coziness and home office, while four bedrooms and two bathrooms are spread over the upper floors.

The first thing Andy French did when she moved into her Victorian terrace in west London, even before she decorated, was to have her much-loved art collection hung by professional art installers. Rash move? Not for Andy. She wanted to create an instantly friendly and familiar home for her and her two daughters after a recent separation, as well as getting the art off the floor.
