RS248: Eclectic Approach

Location: London,UK

Despite the cool exposed concrete walls of the sitting room and dining room, and the mottled grey porcelain tiled flooring that continues throughout the ground floor, this London end-of terrace is clearly the home of someone who is unafraid of colour.
Vintage and antiques dealer Tamara Broido uses her enviable stash of decorative pieces to transform her home from bland to bewitching: the combination of curvaceous modern Venetian studio glass, tactile European pottery and an array of tantalising textiles is both exciting and uplifting. Tamara says: ‘My husband Peter and I bought this house, back in 2004 before we had children, as it reminded us of the open-plan homes we grew up in in South Africa; we loved its light and simplicity that is perfect when you’re a colour addict like me, and from a practical perspective, the house
never felt too big for just the two of us.’
And with just a few improvements, chiefly the loft conversion in 2010 to create a master bedroom with en suite, it has grown to accommodate the couple’s two daughters as well as Tamara’s ever expanding collections.
