The houses and flats taking part are owned by a variety of stylists, interior designers, product designers, photographers and architects, and reveal the breadth of cool, modern design prevalent in London right now.

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.

“I’ve made some changes recently, like painting our hallway dark blue, and have just added a beautiful copper outdoor chair by Stephen Myburgh to our patio.

“I hope people will enjoy looking around and take inspiration from their visit. I think the house tours are a brilliant idea.”

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.
