The apartment in South Kensington came complete with original fire place, high ceilings, large windows and 119 square metres of interior space with an additional private communal garden.
Underpinning everything was an existing colour of dove grey pared with beech herringbone parquet flooring which our client decided to retain as they were in excellent condition. The over bed storage, all in white, was created to reflect the client’s taste and to suit the requirement for additional space. Spotlights and adjustable lamps were incorporated within the storage space to provide greater flexibility. Druzy quartz knobs with gem-like shine were handpicked by the client for a natural finishing touch.
For supreme snugness, plenty of cushions and throws were used which were finished with a touch of delicate detailing as seen in De Le Cuona’s pieces. The client’s daughter was very involved in her choices and personalised her room in the form of letter books that read her name, bringing her private space to life.
One of the first items the client chose for her bedroom which set the feel, was an exquisite mother of pearl inlay chest of drawers originating from Jaipur, India. When it came to sourcing a mirror for her bedroom the size had to be just right so as not to overpower the natural balance of the room. After many attempts Designers Atelier eventually found a Chinese-inspired mirror with a heavily distressed painted frame featuring a delicate, ornate, textural design. The large Blossom chandelier from Porta Romana with glass detail in decayed silver, constructed from forged steel, beautifully complements the clients sophisticated taste.
