Discovered via the Anglo-French blog Les Carnets du Design, the London residence of design duo Antoni Burakowski and Alison Roberts, praised by Vogue for their "witty ideas and unconventional attitude." The couple bought a decrepit three-story Georgian home in Borough, south-east London, in 2002, and transformed it into a cabinet of curiosities, featuring a carefully curated collection of vintage furniture and fixtures. Read about the restoration process in The Independent and take a narrated slideshow tour at House of Antoni & Alison.
