Inspirational Interiors: Pimlico House, London

A major restoration by interior designer Rose Uniacke, this grand private house combines comfort & friendliness with grandeur & elegance.

Introducing Pimlico House –– home to interior, furniture and lighting designer Rose Uniacke and her family. Described as “monastery meets Venetian palazzo", this exceptionally large nineteenth century London house was originally a professional artist’s combined studio, gallery and private residence. In subsequent years, it has been gradually converted into a smaller house and four apartments.  

A restrained, subtle palette, a pared-back approach to furnishings and decoration, and organic, untreated textures such as marble, untreated wooden floorboards, limestone slabs and rough linens work together to give the house warmth, energy and serenity.

Undeniably one of the loveliest houses in London, this is at once a modern house, a historic house and a house that has been given back its soul...
