The Hogwarts House

I learned of another great designer recently, Rose Uniacke, whose London home is featured here.  She is not only an interior designer but the owner of a chic shop on Pimlico Road.  A love of antiques seems to run in the family.  Her mother, Hilary Batstone, also owned a shop for which Rose bought pieces while living in France.  Her husband, David Heyman, is the producer of the Harry Potter films and the home is a bit gothic which has led to it to be referred to as Hogwarts in the neighborhood. It was built in 1859 as a studio and home for the portrait painter James Rannie Swinton.  It needed extensive renovations by the time the couple bought the home.  I love that they restored it to look as it might have originally while only adding in a few modern touches in the kitchen and pool room. I bet it looks even more beautiful decorated for Christmas and it's too bad no one has photographed it for a holiday story.  Fingers crossed for next year.
