design et al are delighted to announce Ezralow Design Ltd have been successfully shortlisted in the Living Space – UK category ahead of this year’s International Design and Architecture Awards 2015.
The design brief for their Mayfair Residence project was a pied a terre for clients that entertain; the emphasis was on flow, comfort and understated elegance. The client wanted a London home in which they could host a variety of social events but also sustain family life, hence the element of function was an important factor in the design. The harmonious flow of the space is also key to this design – there are three areas that work well as one living space. The colour palette for this project is fresh, elegant and timeless. These colours and textures have been interwoven throughout the scheme in a way that not only do they work well together as one entertainment space, but each area has its own identity, offering the clients intimate spaces to enjoy as well.
Ezralow’s design addresses the requirement for a harmonious entertainment space, as well as a family space and in order to do this, we focused on the flow of the rooms. For this, they opened up a room that was previously used as a bedroom and created a multi functional space – when open, it offers an intimate yet harmonious space for entertainment; and when not used for entertaining, the room is very often used as a private study / reading room. Additionally, the sofa is a very comfortable sofa bed that sits comfortably within a joinery unit that has been designed bespoke with two pull out shelves on either side that act as night tables when the bed is pulled out.
The clients wanted a colour palette that was elegant and sophisticated with luxurious touches. Ezralow and her team introduced a palette of greys with soft golds and antique bronze detailing throughout. There are several bespoke elements that are unique to this project– such as the shagreen clad media cabinet which was influenced by the Art Deco era, a style and ethos that company director and head designer Kamini is particularly influenced by and admires. A harmonious energetic flow is created and a sense of comfort, elegance and sophistication subtly permeates the environment.
