Honouring Arts & Crafts

Designed by Emil Eve Architects


Nestled in Londons Muswell Hill Conservation Area, this Edwardian property was home to artist Maurice de Sausmarez until it was purchased by the current owners. The entire house needed renovation as it was dated and unsuited to modern family life; Emil Eve Architects were tasked with transforming the house into a home filled with colour, light and texture without sacrificing its unique period qualities and rich history.


Inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement, the owners desired as many elements as possible to be handmade and sourced from skilled craftspeople. The bathroom was no exception; Drummonds fittings were a must, as the timeless style and superior quality would fit perfectly with the design scheme and complement the period features of the property.

The result is a blend of rich colours and textures and an exquisite fusion of contemporary and traditional design. Pops of pinks, blues and yellows create a sense of playfulness, complementing the unique patterns and textures of the wallpaper and tiles. Materials were specially selected for tactility, warmth, and the ability to age gracefully.

Drummonds freestanding Swale cast iron bath creates an impressive focal point in the room, and the striking pink finish juxtaposes the blue tiled floor. With a rolltop and traditional ball and claw feet the bath perfectly complements the Edwardian architecture of the house. An adjoining tiled shower room was incorporated to create a clear distinction between the spaces, and an overhead shower rose and sleek hand shower in polished Nickel match the bath and basin fittings for continuity and a contemporary touch.
