Element Living Interiors


St. James’s Gardens by Element Living Interiors

Element Living Interiors have been shortlisted for Interior Design Scheme – UK Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2020.

Element Living Interiors were enlisted for the interior design of this Victorian Listed building in a conservation area in London. The property is a family home for an old-fashioned gentleman and a fun femme, the clients wanted their Double Reception Room to be their ultimate space to entertain guests, however they also wanted their Family Room and Master Bedroom to be a secluded space to withdraw and relax.

“Staying home is the new going out” was the inspiration for the double reception room, it needed to feel old fashioned but elegant, to make their guests feel as if they were in a comfortable club room. The clients also wanted the room to be multi-functional, not only to entertain guests but also to contain a home office, game area, and a reading corner. Element Living Interiors incorporated rusty reds and deep blues, with bronze finishes and button-back sofas and armchairs.

In contrast, the family room, consisting of the sitting and dining areas was to be light, airy and comfortable, as this was is where the family would be spending most of their time together. Element Living Interiors believe that the design works so well because of their determination to listen and care about the brief given to them by the clients.

The client’s home is a Victorian listed building in a conservation area in Holland Park, Element Living Interiors designed the interior to harmonise with the architecture through the choice of fabrics, furniture and finishes in Contemporary look. The designers took the brief and created a reworking of a traditional yet contemporary design. In the Double Reception Room, Element Living Interiors created visual interest for the shutter panels with fabric inserts in the traditional, pure damask with Renaissance motif. The selected buttoned back sofa, armchairs were intended to reflect the Victorian style, and the Armchair 1919 by Poltrauna Frau has remained in the same classic design for the past century since 1919. The key aspect of this project was finding common ground between the two different personalities of the clients and producing an eclectic revival of style.
