CLIMB THE LAD­DER

-

A spi­ral stair­case lined with books adds drama and per­son­al­ity to the space.

Re­gency town­houses full of delis, chic eater­ies, bou­tiques, gas­trop­ubs, and tea rooms clus­tered along its streets – it’s an Old Mews House that used to be David Bowie's record­ing stu­dio. "It's a se­cret gem and a re­flec­tion of ev­ery­thing I hold dear to my char­ac­ter and style. My hus­band found it years ago and fell in love with the quirk­i­ness of it,” she re­veals.

When de­sign­ing the space along with Bub­ble Ar­chi­tects and in­te­rior de­signer Emma Kirkler, Jen­nifer took in­spi­ra­tion from the Palm Beach aes­thetic re­veal­ing, "the place in the world I love most is Palm Springs. I love all of it, the ar­chi­tec­ture, the preva­lence of mid-cen­tury mod­ern, the plants, the lat­eral liv­ing, the vin­tage swim­ming pools, even the wide roads and space, and the pan­cakes at The Parker Ho­tel. I have mod­elled my house on the Palm Springs aes­thetic even though I'm nowhere near the desert!"

The house is an L shape, where all rooms over­look the court­yard.

The bed­rooms are in calm­ing nat­u­ral hues, and like the rest of the home, they are mod­ern, fresh, and light. The nurs­ery is lined with Josef Frank wall­pa­per, while the master room is Pluma from the House of Hol­land. The liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ing spa­ces open up to the out­side court­yard; there is also a lovely roof ter­race lined with nat­u­ral wood ac­cessed via a small land­ing at the top of the stairs and the master bed­room. A strik­ing glazed floor panel floods light into the house, while a se­ries of light pan­els al­lows light to spill through the home. The roof ter­race over­looks
