Home tour | A dark, dramatic house in Bristol | These Four Walls blog

I blogged last month about the look book of stylish Bristol homes that I’ve put together with independent estate agents Elephant, and now I want to share a peek inside one of the properties featured.

This four-bedroom Victorian house in the leafy St Andrews area of the city is one of my favourites. I love the palette of delicously moody greys, which look fantastic against the tall sash windows and period cornicing. Throughout, salvaged furniture is interspersed with designer pieces, and built-in shelving is painted the same colour as the walls to show off the owners’ collection of vintage finds (antlers, bell jars, old bottles) to maximum effect. There’s a beautiful blend of textures, too – feathered JuJu hats above ornate fireplaces, silvery cowhides atop polished floorboards, mottled wooden chairs by sleek metro tiles; even the lighting is a funky combination of industrial pendants and chandeliers dripping with beads and shells!

Every room looks stunning, but for me the dining room is the most eye-catching. I’m particularly envious of the chrome and leather chairs by Charlotte Perriand, which look fantastic against the rough wood of the table.

You can see more of this home in the look book, which is available for free from Elephant (2 The Promenade, Gloucester Road, Bristol). There’s also an online version for those based further afield.
