Gordon Place

by Justin Van Breda

If a designer's home is a true characterisation - a biography - of personal style, then Justin Van Breda's Kensington residence is the prime example.

A relaxed yet elegant interior scheme is enjoyed in this three-bedroom, three-bathroom home, a look which is echoed in Van Breda's other projects across exclusive boroughs in London.

A contrast between a rural-chic atmosphere at the garden level and an urban vibe in the drawing room creates a dynamic space with different moods. The drawing room is certainly the most traditional space in the home, complete with original Georgian 8" wide floorboards and a grand piano. Farrow & Ball and Sanderson paints cover the walls in muted tones, adding a sense of serenity to the space.

A sense of humour is far from omitted, seen in unexpected pieces like the Warhol portrait of the Queen, which hangs playfully above the mantelpiece.
