Tamzin Greenhill's Hampstead Heath home is everything between neutral and moody

This is not your typical late Victorian House. First of all, its entrance is located at the side of a small path with, not one, but a set of double doors. Once inside this Hampstead Heath home, it does not take long to realise that it’s much wider and deeper than most Victorian houses.

When interior designer Tamzin Greenhill bought the house, it had not had any work done for around twenty years. She removed the original Victorian features including fireplaces, stain glass windows and she tiled over the original hallway tiles as she felt they were not in keeping with her vision and aesthetic.

When it came to furnishing the home, Tamzin simply installed furniture and art she has collected over the years by artists including Ico Parisi, Ferdinand Dresse, Martin Eisler, Paul McObb
to name but a few.

She has always loved to collect, ‘it’s my passion,’ she says. ‘Luckily most of our furniture is fitted. The only thing I made was the white and brass open shelving unit for the TV family den, which came from New York.’

As someone who likes tidy spaces and considered interiors, the house was fitted with plenty of bespoke storage throughout.

Neutral off white paint was used on the ground floor while moody dark granite grey was used in the master bedroom and home office on the first floor. The neutral colour scheme is emphasised with wooden flooring offering a warm and homey feel.
