Islington House
Family Home by Maddux Creative in London, GB

This Georgian home in Islington was acquired by an Anglo/Australian couple who had lived and travelled abroad extensively, and had amassed a unique collection of art and objects. The house was unfortunately stripped of its original interior features, so we tried to evoke a sense of history by using vintage and antique furnishings from various periods and styles. We furnished the house almost entirely with vintage pieces, creating a colourful and eclectic mix which reflected our clients diverse backgrounds and worldly experiences. These clients were not afraid of colour, and a collection of aboriginal paintings, with their earthy red, pink and orange tones, was the basis for the contrasting vibrant teal colour for the Georgian-inspired paneling and cabinetry in the double reception room. The master bathroom had a distinctly vintage aesthetic, where we made use of reclaimed teak laboratory tops to the vanity and the bath.
