Final touches: a top floor mansion-block flat in Chelsea
The completion of a project is always a very satisfying moment for all of us.
Yesterday we worked at the final touches to a flat that we have completely re-designed and fitted for a client.
Once the furniture, just arrived from Chaplin’s, was positioned and Pat’s team hung the sheer blinds, the vision we have been nurturing for months – with drawings, mood-boards, meeting and the occasional headache – finally came to life!
With uninterrupted views towards South-West, this flat gets the best sunset light. We chose sheer metallic fabric for the simple blinds and blond oak parquet floor by TuttoParquet to set the background. A striking brushed brass cladding for the kitchen island by Espresso Design enhances the natural golden light.
On the corridor wall facing the sitting room’s bay window we installed a multifaceted geometric mirror - Mirallmar by BD Barcelona. It multiplies the light and reflects a de-constructed image of the space.
Few carefully chosen pieces furnish the rooms, all selected among the modern classics of Italian big firms. A Flexform sofa is covered in a gold speckled black and cream boucle wool (very Chanel!), smoky glass wall lights by Oluce line the corridor and a tan, low profile leather bed by B&B Italia takes centre stage in the bedroom as side tables, wardrobes and shelving are all built-in and decorated to match the walls.
This flat deserves a dedicated photo-shooting … we will organise it very soon.
