Located in London, United Kingdom, the magnificent residence you see here now used to be a church. It got converted into a family home by Gianna Camilotti Interiors. It’s hard to believe this place used to be a church when there are so many eye-catching elements to take into consideration, like the stunning spiral staircase in the living room or the piano.
The entire nave and chancel areas were devoted to an open-space living room which also incorporates a kitchen and a dining area. The staircase takes center stage and the whole space is bright and glossy, decorated with sleek furniture and a very simple color palette.
The monochromatic color palette was chosen as to allow the architecture to stand out while elements such as the zebra-print rugs and this beautiful piano give the space a groovy look.
Although the conversion completely transformed the building, some elements were preserved so as not to completely erase the history of this place. The Romanesque windows and arched doorways are a few of the elements that preserve the original charm.
The interior design is somewhat eclectic. Although the color palette is very simple, there’s a nice combination of glossy and glamorous elements with casual and almost rustic features. The kitchen is a good example. You can see here the imposing island complemented by the mobile unit.
The juxtaposition of styles also becomes more visible in the dining area where the sleek white table with the glass top and the arched doorways form an interesting and elegant mix.
The elegant spiral staircase offers access to the lofted floor which houses two bedrooms. Here you can find the same zebra prints as in the living room but in a different form. The bedrooms feature the same bright and open décor as the rest of the house but the wooden beams and the shape of the ceiling offers them a warm and cozy feel.
Of course, there’s also a beautiful patio, a sort of outdoor living space with a black and white dining area featuring a table with a glass top, just like the one inside.
