Elegance in Notting Hill: Olivia Williams Timeless Design

2024•01•12

Discover the magical transformation of a 19th-century Notting Hill house into a lively family home, curated by interior designer Olivia Williams.

Within interior design, where imagination and foresight come together to sculpt our environments, certain individuals distinguish themselves by transforming mere houses into warm, narrative-filled homes. Olivia Williams is a shining example of such a visionary in this field.

Olivia Williams is an accomplished interior designer whose project was to transform an intriguing house that weathered the 19th and 20th centuries changes in London’s enchanting Notting Hill neighborhood.

Originally built as a private residence in the mid-1800s, this residence transformed into a “ladies’ residential club” before evolving into a post-World War II hotel. Today, a different enchantment prevails—one of aesthetics, architecture, and family.

Today, we take a closer look at this captivating residence, exploring the intricacies of Olivia’s design choices and their story about her unique aesthetic. Continue reading to explore the project.


A Symphony of Styles

The Notting Hill home of Olivia Williams is a testament to her interior designer prowess. The residence seamlessly blends various design styles, creating a harmonious symphony that reflects her eclectic taste and a keen eye for detail.

As we step into the house, we are welcomed by a juxtaposition of modern art against a backdrop of classic Victorian architecture, immediately setting the tone for what lies ahead.

The heart of Olivia Williams is undoubtedly the living room, where modern elegance takes center stage. A plush, neutral-toned sectional sofa invites guests to sink into luxurious comfort, surrounded by an array of throw pillows that add pops of color and texture.

The fusion of sleek, modern furniture with vintage accents creates a timeless atmosphere. A carefully curated collection of coffee table books, each telling its story, invites guests to explore diverse interests and influences.

Preserving Historical Heritage

Preserving the historical legacy of a residence requires a delicate balance, noting the challenge of bringing a house into the 21st century while respecting its heritage. Rather than directly beneath the house, the strategic placement of a pool beneath the garden exemplifies the commitment to preserving the building’s historical integrity.

Structural changes were limited to maintaining the original features like cornicing, baseboards, and the dado rail, highlighting a dedication to reinstating relevant historical elements.

Olivia Williams here exudes a unique charm, defined by personal touches in every corner. These details tell a story, infusing the home with warmth and authenticity. It emphasizes that a well-designed home genuinely reflects its inhabitants, going beyond mere aesthetic appeal.


Olivia Williams projected a home that is more than just a living space – it is a masterpiece that encapsulates the essence of her design philosophy. Olivia has created a visually stunning and profoundly personal home through carefully orchestrating styles, textures, and personal touches.

As we traverse the rooms of this exquisite residence, we are reminded that great interior design is not merely about aesthetics; it is about crafting spaces that resonate with the soul and tell a story.
