Tucked in the heart of London’s well-heeled Notting Hill, this townhouse is a bespoke beauty that celebrates refined elegance and contemporary taste while preserving the property’s historic bones.
Designed by Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, the founder and CEO of Banda Property, and Princess Beatrice’s husband, the 19th-century Notting Hill townhouse is a luxury estate that takes on a holistic approach to create a distinctive concept of luxury apartment living.
An eclectic expression is prevalent within this luxurious home, as the designer wanted to preserve the property’s 1850s aesthetic. The Victoria cornicing is restored, highlighted with the use of natural materials that bring about a peaceful sanctuary within the buzz of Notting Hill.
Inside, the key palette features brown pigmented natural hues, peach, burgundy, and cedar to create a laid-back atmosphere. In addition, the design concept reinterprets traditional English interior design style with dark wood, paneling, rich upholstery, and patterned fabrics. The home also features a range of textural elements such as bouclé, wool, linen, velvet, travertine, onyx, marble, burl, and cane.
In the living room, a red sofa anchors the brightly lit space, enhanced with natural materials and indoor plants. The designer kept the entire backdrop subtly neutral, allowing the key pieces to stand out prominently.
A darker tone ensues in the dining area, with a round dining table featuring dazzling textures taking the spotlight. Wooden flooring injects a touch of old English vibe to the space, while modern lighting pieces ensure the space remains contemporary.
For the master bedroom, dark blues and velvety materials enliven the room while keeping it serene and romantic. Panelled walls in light green soften the theme, aligning with the natural ambience that prevails in this lovely home.
The townhouse aside, Mozzi also helmed the interior design for the adjacent apartments at Notting Hill.
