Modern New Home is a minimal, contemporary 4-bedroom house in Hampstead, north London, with a generous open-plan living space and huge picture windows overlooking ancient woodland. Interior design studio, Black & Milk created an interior to match the exciting architecture by Claridge Architects, focusing on marrying the interior and exterior spaces, and creating a home that is design-conscious yet relaxed, with luxury communicated through quality of materials and finishes. A neutral colour scheme is paired with natural materials and textures including natural fibre wallpaper, wide engineered oak floorboards, solid wood furniture, and handmade accessories. The abundant use of plants further brings the outside in. De La Espada furniture is used in the study area, including Harold Desk by Luca Nichetto and Porto Chair by Matthew Hilton. Pole Light, also by Matthew Hilton, illuminates the reading area in the living space, its linen shade mirroring the washed linen curtains beyond.
