design et al are thrilled to announce a further successful shortlist for Taylor Interiors in the ID&A Awards 2015, this time for the Bedroom Award. The bedroom is part of an exclusive villa in the Andalucía mountain area of southern Spain. Set on expansive grounds at the top of a hill, the front of this stunning property is exposed to striking ocean views, while to the left the vista is mountainous.
The client requested a master bedroom that was dark and sumptuous, yet calm and rejuvenating. Taylor Interiors interpreted these desires by intimately blending glamorous furnishings with bespoke Smania products using the finest materials, which were all carefully sourced, such as the freestanding crocodile leather headboard with a chrome frame. The decadent chocolate black and grey palette is brightened with splashes of turquoise found in the meticulously selected triptych artwork by Sabine Abfalterer.
Though enticingly sensual, the bedroom also needed to be practical and is completed with motorized blinds, wardrobes and storage that do not deflect from the overall ambience.
The striking ceiling is a modern abstraction of a traditional vaulted ceiling and is a weightless cover. The frame is finished in an ivory hue and the centrepiece is oak panelling stained to wenge, which completes the room with a defining originality and style.
