With a love of both the city and the countryside, it’s no surprise that interior designer Lucinda Bullock-Webster combined rural and urban styles when she renovated her south London home. Having lived in Windsor and Buckinghamshire before relocating to London four years ago, she’s had plenty of time to hone her style, which she describes as ‘classic, comfortable and authentic’.

She shares this home with husband James and children Evie, nine, Pandora, seven, and Wolfie, four. ‘We were looking for more space as our family expanded and I’d had my eye on the terraces on this street, because they are slightly taller and wider than the surrounding houses,’ she says.

Though the property had plenty of potential, there were tweaks to be made to improve its layout. The couple used online architects Resi to help them achieve a simple side extension at the rear to widen the kitchen and introduce more light. A sleek, contemporary picture window incorporating a deep padded inset seat is the star of the show. ‘It’s great because it provides additional seating without an armchair taking up extra room,’ she says. ‘I also had it made just high enough so that our dog, Treacle, can’t jump onto it.’
