A design-savvy home

When Staffan and Monique Tollgård designed their vibrant modern flat in the heart of London, they also wanted to give little Leo freedom to roam

By contrast, the master bedroom is a haven of tranquillity. The walls above the bed are finished in a grey perlata paint that imparts sheen with a subtle sparkle and adds depth. To hide the basement ‘view’, a sheer white curtain gently filters the light, with remote-control black-out blinds. “On a weekend morning, Leo wakes at 6.30am, but we’ll bring him into our bedroom with a box of toys and he’ll play happily until 8.30am,” says Monique. “Then we’ll have a relaxed family breakfast together.”  

Back upstairs, the large interconnecting sitting room and dining room is the social hub for the whole family. Here, Staffan and Monique have many of their favourite modern design pieces – a giant JNL leather-upholstered pouffe-cum-coffee table and the Seventies circular chair, where Staffan likes to sit with Leo for story time. “It’s a lovely mix of comfortable pieces that are laid-back, yet elegant,” says Monique. “I think this is also Staffan’s favourite room – it’s usually where I find him.”
