Looking at it now, it’s hard to believe that this beautiful Georgian mews house was only recently in dire need of renovation. Situated in the sought-after Belgravia conservation area, the property had suffered from a bland 1990s magnolia redecoration, which caused it to lose all its Georgian splendour.

Its new owner – a leading light in the finance world and a keen art collector – purchased the house with an aim to bring it back to its former glory. The house had good bones but lacked personality, so she enlisted Architects Studio Bua and interior designer Eliská Design to help.
