Elegant Timelessness: A Fashionable Couple's Georgian Townhouse Oasis

by Rong Zhang 05 Jul 2024

In Spitalfields, east London, A couple, Paul and Michelle Bower-West, transformed their early Georgian townhouse, built in 1717, into a modern and peaceful living and working space. The house is not only an extension of their creative life, but also an expression of their love of historic architecture and their pursuit of design aesthetics.

Georgian architecture, known for its clean lines and symmetrical facades, is representative of 18th century English architecture. Paul and Michelle's townhouse, which is part of the Spitalfields Conservation area, has retained its original historic features such as Georgian siding and shutters, which were restored by the Spitalfields Trust in the 1990s.

Paul and Michele's design philosophy emphasizes simplicity and functionality, and their decorative style is inspired by designers such as Ilse Crawford and Axel Vervoordt. They chose to peel rather than add, removing the original wallpaper and paint effects and restoring the purity of the house. The entire space is dominated by Farrow & Ball's "Old White" hue, which provides the perfect backdrop for their personal items.

The couple reprogrammed the house's spatial functions to suit their modern lifestyle. The basement was transformed into a space focused on cooking and entertaining, equipped with the DeVol Kitchen in Shaker style. The restaurant on the ground floor is transformed into a multi-functional work area that can be transformed into a large gathering place as needed. In addition, they modernized the bathrooms, emphasizing the light and airy nature of the space.

When it comes to detail, Paul and Michelle demonstrate a commitment to quality. For example, they chose to finish the floor with a professional white stain to emphasize a sense of unity between rooms. The exterior stone carefully selected by horticulturist Christian O'Riordan to match the interior flooring reflects a deep understanding and respect for the house.

Paul and Michelle's Georgian townhouse is an example of the perfect blend of history and modern design. Their attention to detail, careful selection of materials and re-planning of the spatial function not only breathe new life into this old building, but also provide a quiet, simple and creative living environment for its occupants. The story and transformation of the house, which has attracted nearly 40,000 viewers through its Considered Things account on Instagram, has become a design and lifestyle inspiration.

Against this backdrop, the Lenno Premium Delicate Floral Print Pillow Covers from the domvitus store, with their exquisite floral patterns and elegant colors, add a unique charm to the fashionable couple's home. These pillow covers not only complement the classical aesthetics of the townhouse but also provide a haven for relaxation with their soft touch and comfortable experience.

Imagine placing the domvitus Lenno Premium pillow covers in such a space filled with historical charm; they not only add a vivid splash of color to the room but also perfectly blend with the overall style of the home, showcasing an elegant yet vibrant attitude towards life. Whether in the cozy living room or the comfortable bedroom, these pillow covers can become the finishing touch that brings tranquility and pleasure amidst the hustle and bustle of life.

Paul and Michelle's home, like their approach to life, pursues simplicity without losing refinement, comfort without losing style. The domvitus Lenno Premium pillow covers are the perfect embodiment of this lifestyle; they are not just home accessories but an art of living, a pursuit and aspiration for a beautiful life.
