Step Inside a London Designer’s Elegant Edwardian Home

In this episode of Houzz TV Live, designer Claudia Dorsch shares a virtual tour of her family’s Edwardian home in London. Claudia kept the traditional layout of separate rooms rather than knock down walls to create an open-plan space. She did, however, move the kitchen from a dark location in the middle of the house to an area at the rear that enjoys natural light and a connection to the terrace and garden. An unusual, pebble-look granite worktop on the island and a combination of pale wood and glossy white cabinets join an antique dresser to create a modern-meets-traditional style. Claudia also highlights a laundry room packed with storage and a main bedroom designed to function like a suite at a fancy hotel, with decorative details on the walls and a plasterwork ceiling inspired by French chateaux.

The ability to hide a messy area behind closed doors is one reason to keep a kitchen as a separate space. Another is that sooner or later, the hood will need repair or replacement, and grease is very hard to clean off soft and other non-scrub surfaces.

Absolutely lovely renovation. Ms. Dorsch perfectly married the old with the new, being true to the grace and style of the old while incorporating new finishes and accents. The mouldings and trim are wonderful. Fabulous kitchen, laundry and master suite! With all the attention to storage and space use, it is a perfect family home.

It's a beautiful home. My favorite parts are the moldings and the marble fireplace with the antique glass.

When ever I host a party I get as much food catered as possible that way the kitchen does not get messy,
And I cook less and the open concept works better.
Because I’m using the kitchen as a buffet area!
