Among them is Carly Madhvani of NW3 Interiors, who showcases and sells designer furniture by brands including Knoll and Vitra from her garden flat in Lyndhurst Gardens, Hampstead.

“This is the first time I’ve taken part in the tours and I’m really looking forward to it,” says Madhvani.

Suzanne Imre, editor of Livingetc, adds: “We’ve persuaded some of London’s most creative and stylish homeowners to open the doors to their homes.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to see beautiful spaces up close – an event not to be missed for any interiors fan.”

The Livingetc house tours, which run from 10am to 4pm, are self tours, so you visit the homes at your own pace, using your own transport. The events have been planned to enable easy travel between each house by public transport or car.
