London homes know a thing or two about beautiful extensions, including this Victorian-era terrace house that got a sexy two-story addition designed by local firm Paul Archer Design (certainly no newbies at the game.) The three-floor, 1,500-square-foot residence features the dashing interior design work of Lulu Roper-Caldbeck," co-owner of the London design goods retailer Darkroom. And dark, this place is. The blackened exterior cladding of the extension becomes moody-hued walls on the interior, an effective backdrop for the graphic contrasts seen in current furnishings and artwork.
According The Modern House, which is representing the property, the home features interesting details like a vintage French sink in the bathroom, curve-edged black and white porcelain tiles in the kitchen, and original timber floorboards, fireplaces, and staircase. The extension also includes a glazed study and small roof terrace on the second floor, all overlooking a garden that's open to the ground floor living area.
