This stylish and modern notting hill The townhouse sits behind a striking, beautifully maintained 1950s white stucco facade in a series of “very elegant, typically London buildings,” according to listing agent Louisa Brodie.
Designed by Banda Property, the three-story home overlooks an idyllic, private garden space and benefits from high ceilings, lots of natural light and “a mix of large, flexible spaces but also more private, cozy nooks,” Ms. Brodie said.
A distraction from Banda’s trademark neutral color palettes, this house is bursting with bold, confident colors, patterns and earth tones, while still showcasing the brand’s signature use of natural materials and textures. An eclectic mix of furniture, antique gems, retro classics and bespoke pieces by Banda is complemented by newer, carefully curated pieces from emerging artisans and designers, according to Ms. Brodie.
“For this family townhouse, we incorporated more colourful, playful themes into the design, which is a departure from the muted and understated themes of some of our recent projects,” said Edo Mapelli Mozzi, founder and creative director of Banda, which currently has a number of Projects underway around the world.
