Welcome Home! Thanks to Françoise Murat

The hallway on the left doesn’t say ‘welcome home’. In fact it doesn’t say much except maybe ‘please help me’. It belonged to a 1920s house, was dark and unloved. It had not been touched in over 50 years. Françoise Murat commissioned new double doors with stained glass, laid new oak flooring with Wenge trim as the original floor had, sadly, been stripped out. Sensitive to the age of the home, she retained  much of the extensive mill work, tall baseboards, dado rails and original doors to reception rooms.

She says that she decided to mix old and new. A Swedish Empire chaise longue (re-upholstered in mink grey) partners with a 20th century Danish sofa, with bright touches of chartreuse. The walls are white to set off the Italian mid-century luminaries she found at an antiques fair in London.

Click continue to see the transformation of the staircase at the the end of the hallway.
