design et al are thrilled to announce the shortlist for Taylor Interiors in The ID&A Awards 2016. Taylor Interiors were appointed to completely refurbish this unique five storey townhouse in Kensington which consists of four bedrooms and small outside space.
The designers were given a substantial brief to renovate this home, which included the stunning drawing and dining room which has a 3.7 m high ceiling. Our main goal was to implement to the design scheme the use of a rich, an exceptional bespoke chandelier was installed to illuminate the oval dining table which seats ten guests. The chandelier consist of 270 hand blown glass elements luxurious chandelier and is made from five distinct glass colours and which weighs 300kg in total. The beams and ceiling above had to be reinforced to allow for this installation. Above the large central coffee table hangs a square mirror panel from which small crystal stars flow. This creates a magical atmosphere at night.
The full length French windows are dressed in luxury curtains made of silk fabrics with bold broidery and embellished with velvet pelmets in a rich turquoise tone. The new fireplace which was supplied is made from sandstone and the floor is tiled with oak in a soft taupe color. The true master piece of the room is a Jessica Zoob abstract painting named ‘The One’.
This room is used in the most practical way. It offers a large dining table to entertain ten guests and when entertaining the same number of the guests can sit around the central coffee table. The bold curtains with pelmets bring so much life into the room through their colour and beautiful floral broidery, and this is also repeated on the table runner.
