This beautiful and quirky house in Highgate, London is home to  successful author of many books and a TV producer who have decided to get against the usual clean modern feel and adopt a more rustic and reclaimed feel with lots of colour.

They were both keen to have high quality audio distributed around the whole home with access to online media such as Napster and Spotify, and required full fire and security systems, TV’s in the key rooms, and telephony systems.

Some of the technology includes: Control4 7′ touch panels throughout the house with door entry functions, Control4 SR250 remotes in key rooms, Control4 intercom, keypad access to the driveway gate, Fike fire detection, Texecom intruder detection, hidden window vibration detection, Panasonic TV’s throughout the house, iPod docks throughout the house, HD distribution, Sonos, Bowers & Wilkins CM5 ceiling speakers through the the house, Bowers & Wilkins in-wall speakers in the snug room, local sources such as Blu-ray players throughout the house, telephone system throughout the house with Gigaset Cordless phones and SNOM telephones, and the home has been future-proofed with fibre optic cabling.

The interior of the house was done by Retrouvious interior design and they have created a wonderful place to be with lots of unusual and retro items which make this home unique.
