The Disco House featured in Wallpaper* March 2018

The house is full of meticulously designed details, such as the reeded oak stair rail that takes the curve of the original newel post on the ground floor, the alabaster windows or the brass fillets in the ceiling of the first-floor den that link the centre of the back window to the centre of the opening to the drawing room.

It may all look madly opulent, but Smalley says ‘I think there is a clarity underpinning the richness.’ All it needs now is Tilda Swinton to move in, dressed from head to toe in Prada.
