Artemide party in Fitzrovia: origami love

With thanks- Artemide party

Thanks to Giovanni and the team for the excellent Artemide party in their Fitzrovia’s showroom last night. We particularly like the Issey Miyake lights.

They are beautiful sculptural objects – creating a soft glow in an origami structure.

London interiors shops: Caravane in Marylebone

Loving the collection at the Caravane shop in New Cavendish Street. There are many of warm, comforting objects to pick from. We especially like the lights and fabrics, which would add interest  – and a touch of Paisian- Maroccan style – to any home.

It is definitely worth a visit.

 

Cockleshells and silver bells: how to design a bathroom

Where to start when designing a bathroom?

Simple, by using natural materials found on the beach.

A pink tinged cockle shell inspired this look with a calm pick foreground against the light blue watery mosaic tiles interspersed with silver highlights.

Mimicking the reflections of the sea, this finish is used on the walk-in shower, bespoke deep tiled bath tub and in the many cubby-holes carved in the walls.

In contrast, darker wood tones are used for the vanity units to create an elegant, natural finish.

On site: a partial refurbishment in West London

Not every project is a full refurbishment.

Some time we are asked to intervene only on one or few areas of a property.

In this case the clients felt the need to review their basement and to build an extension at first floor level to house their master bathroom, so that the current one could be converted in a dressing room.

We are now half way through the building works and we start seeing the improvements of the new design.

The basement walls have been remodelled opening up the chimney breasts to contain the kitchen and adding a fireplace towards the garden end and, at first floor, the bathroom extension is completed and new big openings let natural light in to the central dressing room.

Also the details are coming together: white plaster on the walls that reflects light and provide a neutral warm background, raw concrete for the fireplace cantilevered hearth, walnut wood in the bathrooms to add some natural touch and the big bespoken bath clad in white and silver mosaic to provide a mini home-spa.

Finishing touch for Christmas : the red silk tassel

As tassels are a finishing touch to both furnishings and garments, and everybody loves a little touch of luxury, we thought we would add one to our Christmas cards this year, in seasonal red to add some pop to the mantelpieces.

Comfort and joy are the key words of all our projects, so the wishes were an easy choice!

and as the finishing touch…

The final polish: last touches to 55 Wimpole Street

Yesterday we have been busy adding the last touches to the interiors of a dentists’ surgery at 55 Wimpole Street. Some times we are a bit control freaks when it comes to interiors!

We hung curtains and paintings, arranged furniture and even added flowers choosing colours that complement the colour scheme.

The clients asked us to help them hanging art and choosing accessories, so we will see the complete look in a few months and then we will be able to take final pictures of the project.
