Those of us who live in an urban environment (self included) are always looking for ways to bring a touch of the outdoors to our interiors. Perhaps that's why we fell for this Victorian house in London, with interiors featuring a subtle botanical motif. Located in the heart of East London, in the neighborhood of London Fields, this project (spotted on Air Space ) conjures up visions of a meadow of summer flowers. The common thread running throughout the interiors? The color green, in all its glory. Above: The use of dark green subway tiles as a backsplash sets the tone in the kitchen extension. Above: The dark chevron pattern of the wood floor adds texture to the simple detailing of the extension. Above: The colors and textures of the garden outside are mimicked by the Josef Frank textiles in the window seat. Above: A conservatory on the side of the house brings in additional light. Above: The sage green walls in the living room serve as a backdrop to emerging hints of color. Above: The rose-colored glass in the sidelights add color to the Victorian entry and stair hall. Above: A skylight brings light into the modern shower within the traditional bathroom. Above: Celadon green subway tiles wrap around the shower stall. Above: Celadon green subway tiles line the wall behind the sink in the bathroom. Above: The meadow comes into full bloom in a young girl's room. Above: The Josef Frank textiles in the window seat mirror the surrounding foliage from the garden.
