Upstairs, the look is simple but funky. The bathrooms have both been redone, but also in the spirit of the Seventies. Lucy and Adam sourced white tiles featuring giant circles, which were originally used at Amsterdam Schiphol airport, in the Sixties, while the floors are pale lilac rubber from Dalsouple. The children’s bedrooms are remarkably clutter-free and toy-free – although Lucy collects vintage Fisher-Price toys, she tries to resist too many plastic toys, and often buys second-hand. Molly’s bedroom features white walls with stick-on red picture frames, designed by Ivy Decor. In Bert’s bedroom, a vintage Alvar Aalto chair has pride of place. “I love the idea that you can build the design of an entire room around one strong decorative feature,” says Lucy. 

Lucy considers her own bedroom to be something of a retreat: white walls are teamed with vintage Heals curtains to add a dash of pattern. Adam created the painting above the bed. “We all lay down and he traced our outlines, then painted them in acrylics,” she says.  On her bedside table, there is a collection of crystals, evidence that this is Lucy’s one private zone. “After I’ve had a hectic day, I sit here and meditate for half an hour,” she says. “It keeps me sane.”
