Step Inside a London Designer’s Elegant Edwardian Home
In this episode of Houzz TV Live, London designer Claudia Dorsch gives a virtual tour of her family’s Edwardian home in Hampstead. Dorsch kept the traditional layout with separate rooms rather than tear down walls to create an open plan. But she moved the kitchen from a dark location in the middle of the home to an area at the rear that enjoys natural light and a connection to the backyard terrace and garden. An unusual granite island countertop with a pebbled look and a combination of light wood and glossy white cabinets join an antique hutch to create a modern-meets-traditional style. Dorsch also highlights a laundry room packed with storage features and a master bedroom designed to function like a suite at a fancy hotel, with millwork details on the walls and a ceiling inspired by French chateaus.
