More than a house, this is a beautiful interior design home project and the pictures that you will see here will prove it. Let yourself be inspired.
Commissioned by the society portrait painter James Rannie Swinton in the late 1850s and thought to be the first purpose-built artist’s studio in London, this beautiful house was designed with impressive proportions to cultivate wealthy patrons. Some years later, it has been reimagined as a generous twenty-first-century family home, but one that also blurs the boundaries between stage and sanctuary, professional and private lives. The decorating theme according Uniacke is “monastery meets Venetian palazzo.”
The house is a residence place of Uniacke and she lives here with her husband, David Heyman, a film producer that includes the Harry Potter film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” and their eight-year-old son, Harper.
