The basement extension in this Grade II Listed House in Camden, north London, completed a decade earlier, includes a contemporary frameless glass extension, improving connectivity between the house and the garden. The interior designer Bridget Reading was called in last year to help with a complete refurbishment.
The interior makes the most of the newfound light with a double-height cosy sitting room, including a glass ceiling. Lush green wallpaper mimics the greenery from the garden, and the oak-panelled wall gives another nod to nature. Our warm grey Strata Glen herringbone floor runs across the whole level - from the kitchen at one end through the dining area and into the sitting room. The herringbone offers a dynamic element, as well as elegance and character, in an otherwise straight linear space. The slightly oversized batten gives a modern twist to this classic pattern.
Strata Glen is a contemporary grey oak, available in wide-plank, herringbone and chevron parquet. The Strata range - high-quality oak floors with a simple sanded finish in a curated palette of distinctive colours - offers craftsmanship and excellent value for money.
