DELIGHTFUL ONE BEDROOM APARTMENT IN THE FASHIONABLE PRIMROSE HILL NORTH LONDON
A previous Client asked me to design a recent apartment she bought in a Georgian house in
Primrose Hill adjacent to Regent Park.
Storage being an issue we designed and fitted wardrobes in the master bedroom and both alcoves in the open plan reception room. We used a combination of hand painted and Xylocleaf for the units to create a fully bespoke system.
With only one bedroom a sofa bed was important and the best was sourced. An ottoman for storage and a dual purpose coffee table was also made. Whilst the existing kitchen and bathroom were to stay we upgraded lighting, finishes and accessories, to create a fresh new look.
The glass dining table with dining chairs covered in silk Sari material from the clients’ collection that I originally designed brought colour into the space. Crystal ring lights from Illuminati, a favourite of my client, linked both rooms and created an elegant lighting scheme.
Wallpaper from Arté was used on the reception window wall to give texture and soft contrast with a reflective metal woven through. It reflected the crystal lights and table lamps on the console behind the sofa. The main areas were in a neutral Farrow and Ball shade with white woodwork. The alcove units were in a matching finish.
With a rich pink sofa and soft grey walls, a large modern rug reflecting these colours softened the wooden floors. Complementary cushions from Biba were the clients choice, and the console in metal and marble with matching side tables completed the look.
The bedroom featured wallpaper from Arté imagining a fringe effect to give a 3D but French Boudoir atmosphere. In the same way handmade roman blinds complemented the wallpaper with fabric from Sanderson. Also a bespoke wooden venetian blind gave it a shutter feel and added to both privacy and layered elegance.
A king storage bed with a mirror plinth was specially made with integrated headboard. Contemporary side tables and art deco lamps completed the room. A pink and grey splatter rug was set under the bed; the mirror plinth appeared to float the bed over the rug.
