Further to a previous blog post about the Clapham mews house, I’ve completed the work and the house is now on the market. Yesterday, Friday 10th May 2019, the property was featured in The Times as House of the Week !

Large Edwardian family home in Tooting, South West London, with a well established bed & breakfast Parklands Bed & Breakfast.

So I've decided that I'll share my projects with you as a work in progress.Read More
The trend for grey interiors continues, at least in south west London where I and most of my clients live.
