Alix Bateman is the owner of The Glebe House London, an atmospheric Grade II listed Georgian converted coach house in the conservation area of Clapham Old Town, that is fast becoming a creative hub for the area. Holding workshops in traditional craftsmanship, such as gilding, woodcarving and stone carving, and hosting talks and mini salons, the interior Alix has created is a cool mix of period features, muted colours and striking contemporary lighting and accessories.Time Out to be one of the coolest things to do in London.
My favorite room in the house is the kitchen, it feels as if you were all the sudden transported into the past.
My English Romantic lampshade (above) fits the room scheme and colours so well, as if it has been created for it. Alix has chosen some very nice pieces to decorate the house, including interesting choice of lighting, mixed with some beautiful vintage trasures. The house feels like the ideal B&B to spend a few days if you are visiting London, not very often you get to step into these so chraming houses.
