This apartment in West London underwent a complete refurbishment and interior design. Natural polished plaster was applied on the walls to create a soft luxurious feel against the detailed decorative ceilings. The large vertical windows were dressed in sheer and warm layers of soft fabric to enhance the incoming natural light and creating focal points within the rooms. Furniture pieces and light fittings were picked to give comfort and a modern twist complementing the existing traditional backdrop. Geometric furniture was introduced to give a modern graphic twist and to contrast against the softer background creating interest and definition to the rooms. The bedrooms and dressing areas were finished in warm neutral colours to give a calm and relaxed atmosphere. The dressing rooms were mainly solid veneered cabinets with a dedicated shoe storage ‘the shoe shrine’ with smoked glass doors and shelving to exhibit the client’s collection of shoes.
The property required complete refurbishment, which was carried out from the early planning stages to full interior design services.
The layout was designed for a medium sized family, with large living, dining and kitchen area to accommodate modern day life and more traditional style rooms to the main formal floors. Existing features such as the staircase were repainted in dark grey paint and livened up with a bright yellow wool runner, giving the Victorian features a modern twist. The client’s interest in colour, textiles and fashion helped to fuse the result, with the traditional character retained but layered with colour, furniture, modern pieces, lighting and the client’s artwork and sculptures to create a truly refreshing modern feel to a Victorian dwelling.
The property – a town house in one of the crescents by Holland Park – required complete refurbishment and the appointment was for full architectural services, from early planning stages to full interior design .

Existing features as the staircase were repainted in dark grey and livened up with a bright yellow wool runner, giving the Victorian features a modern twist.
The client’s interest in colour, textiles and fashion helped inspired the interior design. The result is an elegant house, with the traditional character retained but layered with colour, furniture, modern pieces, lighting and the client’s artwork and sculptures to give a truly refreshing modern feel to a Victorian dwelling.
Adding colour to a property can be difficult, but in our latest project in Chelsea, just a few steps from Sloane square, the colour scheme is subtle and vibrant at the same time.
The walls are treated with polished plaster which adds a radiant warm glow throughout. The interior design pieces were carefully selected from rose tinged fabric of the curtains to the slim crisp black details of the accompanying tables and lights.
Comfort and aesthetics play together to create an interior that could transport one to an elegant Parisian salon.
A weekend of inspiration is what we need to reboot ourselves. Milan holds an annual Salone Del Mobile event where furniture and lighting manufacturers can show off their newest pieces.
Colour trends this year were spicy like rusty orange, mustard yellow with greys, copper and matt golds. A noticable tribal influence was interlaced into the brands with woven fabrics and metals giving a complex but interesting finish. Colour was abundant and certain manufacturers layered lots of colours and textures creating an interesting and warm look – Bocci is a favourite , see our link to our latest completed project with Bocci pendant lights http://www.studio29architects.co.uk/interior-design.html.

Where better to store your winter accessories but in a beautiful felt, copper, teak, stainless steel and gold leaf sliding wardrobe?
The colours and textures furnish the hallway and the cupboard resembles a beautiful fabric hanging.
Following the refurbishment of this property, Paul Kelley designed a one-off piece which reflects the client’s passion for textiles and colours – we thought it is was a incredible addition to an already perfect house.
What was planned as a short visit the Architect@work show in Olympia turned out to be a full afternoon, such was the after number of interesting new companies and products to try in future projects among the exhibitors.
