Luxury homes: a historic London complex transformed into a home with modern interiors

Olga Ashby has given a residential complex with a 201-year history a light-filled, contemporary interior.

Built in 1820, Regent’s Crescent was formerly created by John Nash as part of the new palace development commissioned by King George IV. Over the years, this historic crescent-shaped complex evolved into a series of homes for London’s elite. Today, it boasts 67 apartment residences and 9 Garden Villas.

The owner of this apartment at Regent’s Crescent is a food blogger from China who lives in London and loves vintage and contemporary art. Most of the items were purchased from galleries in London and Paris.

    The homeowner fell in love with the breathtaking crescent-shaped facade of the complex conceived by John Nash, as well as the illustrious history behind the establishment. Some of the noted residents at Regent’s Crescent include Earl of Derby, Lord Houstoun-Boswall, and Count Joseph-Napoléon Bonaparte – Napoléon’s older brother.
