Old House New Home


Channel 4's Old House New Home presented by George Clarke, saw the production team head to Addiscombe in South London, to support Sophia and Cookie in their restoration of an Edwardian terrace from the Arts and Crafts period. For the kitchen, Johnson Tiles' Minton Hollins collection complemented the overall palette of fresh greens and yellows – selected to mirror the shades of the parallel garden, which was made visible through the installation of large patio windows. Pluck London provided the kitchen worktops which, alongside the cooker, created the room’s centrepiece. Upstairs in the bathroom, Savoy and Devonshire ranges helped create a calming aesthetic with bright blue the chosen hue for the walls, and a lighter, complementary shade and intricate pattern selected for the floor.
