Someone Converted This Old London Church Into A Luxurious Home.

Can you imagine anything more beautiful than a church's interior design? But have you ever wondered what it would be like to actually live inside one? Well, for one lucky person, that dream has now become a reality. But it's no longer the church most people who go to mass on Sunday are used to. The James Spicer Memorial Church Hall School, located in Chingford, North-East London, has undergone a complete overhaul and has ultimately been transformed into a luxurious mansion courtesy of a Brazilian interior designer complete with everything anyone would want and more. It even has a piano that plays itself!

In 1890, the foundation was laid for the James Spicer Memorial Church Hall School.

At the time, Queen Victoria was on the throne, but times have changed, and so did everything else, including this church, which is no longer a church at all, but rather a breathtaking luxurious home you have to see to believe.

If heaven really was a place on Earth, it would look a lot like this!

When the congregation dwindled, the church closed, but then came the brilliant Brazilian interior designer, Gianna Camilotti. She bought the property after falling her over heels in love with it, and turned it into a home and an office space.

In 2013, Camilotti started to renovate the otherwise tired old building.

But while the church is anything but a church, Camilotti decided to keep some of the original features, such as the ethereal looking windows which make a beautiful contrast with the see-through glass walls of the bedroom.

It's difficult to imagine that this was a school and a meeting place for churchgoers.

Well, now it's still a meeting place, but for parties with friends and family members, and it seemed like Camilotti spared no expense to ensure that it could accommodate several people. There's also a futuristic slick, clean look from the winding staircase, to the London piano-bar.

Go back a few years and a zebra striped bed cover and pillow cases would have been a sin.

Now it's sinfully delicious, courtesy of this talented designer who turned this grade II listed church area into a luxurious bedroom with an arched mirror and even an animal rug. Now this is the kind of bedroom we'd love to wake up in every morning.
