Plascon House Tour: A Modern Eclectic Home

It is hard to envision that this home was once uninhabitable after a house fire caused havoc and forced the owners into renovating the property. The end result however, is nothing short of modern and beautiful with a few eclectic touches that make this house a home.

This is a four-storey semi-detached Victorian house in north London. A large family home with ample space and glamorous touches.

The open living spaces comes alive in a palette of soft greys and pops of orange. A custom-built bookshelf spans the length of the wall and also houses the family’s prized collection of books. In a similar shade, a lofty sofa adds to the comfort of this space. Reclaimed chevron flooring and a coffee table found at an antique store complete the overall look of this area.

An old, plonked-on conservatory was torn down as a part of the renovation and a cool kitchen-diner extension built in its place. It blends into the Victorian structure of this home and provides a light and inviting space for preparing meals and sharing time with loved ones. We love the streamlined cabinets in a neutral tone as well as the Cararra Marble backsplash which adds a dose of elegant flair to this room.

The large dining room is an entertainer’s dream space and the solid wood table can seat up to 14 at once. Open shelving on the walls becomes an extension of the owners’ style and the perfect spot to display art, decor and more to tie into the overall aesthetic of this modern eclectic abode. And how cool is that polished concrete floor for a totally urban and industrial look!

The main bedroom feels soft and luxurious with plush textiles, an upholstered headboard and striking wallpaper by Emery & Cie. We love the soft complementary shades used together in this space – creating the ultimate zen bedroom with pops of interesting textures and colour throughout. The best part is probably that this space includes a stylish walk-in wardrobe which leads to main en-suite bathroom. And of course, the bathroom does not disappoint – it is the ideal spot to unwind and enjoy a sense of tranquility away from the bustle of everyday life.
