This client’s aim was to create an environment of ‘exclusivity’ – and wanted us to invoke the feeling of a luxury hotel suite.
We produced scale plans for each room to include a re-design of the entrance/dining room, kitchen, and reception room. The property was completely furnished and finished, allowing the client to immediately reside in the apartment during his regular visits to the UK.
The Entrance Hall/Dining Room
By opening up these areas, we allowed the wonderful natural light from both the drawing room and the kitchen to flow in. Existing closed off recesses were opened up and the entrance into the kitchen widened. The client had a passion for Swarovski Crystal lighting and Style Infusion selected pieces from the range, pleased that our client agreed with our choice of the more contemporary pieces from the range. Ulf Moritz wallpaper was used on the facing wall upon entrance into the dining hall. A stunning black glass cabinet and Starck Caardre mirror completed the feature wall, and a glass dining table reflecting the chandelier above caused the light to flow throughout the opened space.
The Drawing Room
We created a strong focal point in this large room by using flood lighting behind a faux chimney breast. An Italian Porada TV cabinet housed the audio visual system, and nutty wood flooring was laid throughout (continuing into the dining room, kitchen, cloakroom and hallways).
Automated curtains were fitted, over simple, white vision blinds for privacy. A large rug in the same tones as the fabrics completed the space, and created a feeling of wonderful luxury underfoot. A silver disc torso sculpture and optic dreams mirror provided the extra visual interest, and finished the room perfectly.
The original layout blocked a considerable amount of natural light flow. We opened up the area to include a breakfast bar, and enhanced the flow of light by toning down the cabinet doors with nutty oak.
Although small, the cloakroom was a great shape. We installed a wall-hung basin unit and WC. Funky wallpaper, a large,round mirror and Wenge shelf finished the luxurious feel, with sensor lights in the boxing below completing the look.
Guest Bedroom 1
This was the smallest of the bedrooms, but the use of chalky paint finishes and soft-toned carpet, made the space appear much larger. New doors were in a Zebrano finish were fitted to the existing integrated wardrobes. Minimal furniture also contributed to the feeling of space – a king bed, 2 glass side tables, a bedroom chair and a glass console underneath the wall mounted TV. The en-suite shower room was remodeled, with wall-hung basin & WC and a large walk-in shower. Frosted glass panels were added to the bathroom door to allow the light through.
Guest Bedroom 2
This was a larger room with an en-suite bathroom. A theme feature of purple was used, using a Jab fabric for the bedroom chair, a purple headboard with studs, and Jab purple curtains. A super king sized bed was used with a desk, chest of drawers and a floor length mirror.
The Master Bedroom Suite
Scale drawings were also drawn for the master suite, creating a large dressing room and en-suite. A large Emperor bed completed the suite, with 2 bedroom chairs and automated curtains.
