Fulham Family Home
Kitesgrove transformed a Victorian property from a generic developer’s design, lacking in identity and character, into a practical family home with warmth and texture throughout. Introducing bespoke joinery and interesting furniture and fittings whilst maintaining a neutral, pared-back palette, Kitesgrove created a calm, harmonious scheme for this family residence. The thoughtful scheme ensured that practicality and comfort was as central to the design as its visual appeal.

With comfort at the epicentre of this private apartment, the use of soft, textured fabrics and a fresh colour palette make this home inviting and understated.

Touches of pattern and the use of distinctive finishes ensure this home is a unique reflection of its owner.

Nestled amongst the quiet terraces behind Notting Hill Gate, this two storey house is being extended up with a mansard roof and down with a new subterranean space.
