Peek inside a designer-turned-blogger’s updated 1930s pad

Everything but the facade was demolished

Food blogger and supper club host Hanna Geller Goldsmith is a self-proclaimed “recovering” interior designer. But if trauma is hinted at in that disclaimer, there’s no trace of that in the beautiful home that she and her husband renovated in the Maida Vale neighborhood of London.

Goldsmith demolished everything behind the facade of the “mock” four-story Arts and Crafts lateral house from the 1930s and created an entirely new space that was modern and could comfortably accommodate the two of them and their four boys, as well as the occasional supper club.

What she and architect Guy Stansfeld focused on was establishing a large communal space and promoting flow while scaling down the children’s bedrooms to encourage them to move into the living area.

As for the interiors, Goldsmith kept the bones intact as well as a few ’30s elements such as Crittal windows and terrazzo floors. A new sculptural staircase curves up the floors. Furniture is a mix of Scandinavian midcentury and antique pieces. For more, head on over to the Modern House.
