The Little Boltons is a chic, elegant refurbishment and extension of a Victorian terrace residence in Chelsea, London.
Woolf Interior and MWAI collaborated on an elegant refurbishment and extension of a Victorian terrace family house in the Boltons Conservation Area, Chelsea, SW10. The project includes the reconfiguration of the existing rear elevation and garden. A new lower-ground floor and rear glass extension, as well as a subterranean basement which was added to form the 3,900 sq ft design. With an emphasis on bespoke joinery, a streamlined modern kitchen, elegant bathrooms, luxurious textiles and bespoke modern antique furniture, the tailored design reflects the Anglo/American heritage and sophisticated style of the owners. The project is a blend of Los Angeles cool and Chelsea chic. This project has a subtle international twist in all of the space planning, fabrics, lighting and furniture choices.
The bespoke and tailored furniture is a key aspect of this project. The palette is consistent throughout and the space is lit using traditional windows a modern glass extension, skylights and multiple interior light sources. The interior works by synthesizing textured joinery, inlay metals, and the layering of fabrics and accessories.
This project represents a classic prime central London Townhouse, whilst still reflecting the innate style of the client. It is both sophisticated and elegant with a subtle international twist.
