This unique, self-built home in Brockley starts to put on a show the moment guests walk down the quiet mews street on which it hides away. The striking rust-coloured and geometric exterior embraces industrial-chic trends, but it gives no indication of the sophisticated interior that lies behind the front door. Step inside and you'll find a magazine-worthy home where natural light is allowed to pour in through the glass doors and skylights, and colourful pieces of original artwork arranged tastefully about the place grab your attention. The furnishings are mainly mid-century and Scandinavian in inspiration, while the surfaces on the black kitchen are as sleek as they come. One of our favourite parts has to be the outside terrace, though, where a landscape gardener has packed plant beds full of native New Zealand plants and brings a touch of wilderness to this corner of South London. As only feels appropriate for this stylish home, it's located in and close to some of London's trendiest neighbourhoods, nestled in the trifecta of Lewisham, New Cross and Peckham.
