I recently came across this gorgeous flat which was designed by UK-based interior design firm Renaissance Co. which operates from its studio in Portsmouth and takes commissions across the South of England.

Spanning three floors, it's hard to believe this flat is home to a family of five, far less one with two boys under the age of five.  Designer Abigail Hobden is adept at using neutrals to create a calm and serene environment without making things feel too sterile.  The largely white-and-grey palette is saved from becoming monotonous by careful use of accent colours throughout the space and, despite the feminine touches, it manages not to feel too girly.  A sense of irreverence is maintained through the artwork and accessories including album cover art and Banksy prints in the children's nursery.
