Continuing on with our series of Home Styles we went along to visit the lovely Cynthia's adorable home in Twickenham. Her interior styling being a mixture of modern yet comfortable subtlety with the odd statement piece for an extra streak of personality is what lead her to us. The results are quite spectacular.
Question 1: Describe your interior style?
Our interiors style is a mixture of Old English and new mixed together. We also keep the rooms as period as possible to the property and just add a few touches of modern furniture, fixtures and fitting. We love a minimalist look. We are Pinterest inspired but we like to add our own little touches and not follow the trend so much.
Question 2: What motivated you to choose shutters within your home?
My love affair with Plantation Shutters started as a little girl growing up in The Seychelles. The Grand Houses and Plantation Houses had plantation shutters on the doors and windows. A mix of French and English Colonial style. My husband first used Plantation Shutters in a house we developed in Acton W3 in 2011. The love carried on from there. We had them fitted in our flat on Kneller Road TW2 and now in our House in Colonial Avenue TW2. They are very easy to clean & does not need any maintenance. I personally think they add a great feature to the room and act as a focal point same a fire place would do in a room. Shutters go with any interior look one chooses.
Question 3: Your property is beautiful, tell us what differentiates your property from others in this area of London?
We love Victorian Houses and we believe bringing them back to life and adding the modern chic elevates the house. Our home is still an ongoing project towards our forever home goals inside and outside.
Question 4: What’s the best thing about living where you do?
Our area is very safe, great schools and families. It’s a lovely place to live and have a family. We have a lovely park and beautiful Richmond and Kingston is on our door step.
