Pied à Terre, SW6

- Renovation - / Chelsea
  • Living Space: 506 ft²
  • Bedrooms: 1
  • Bathrooms: 1

Brief and Scope:

This bijous 1 bed apartment the heart of fashionable Chelsea had an awkward, unwelcoming layout. The client for this Chelsea Interior Design wanted it to feel less like a pied-a-terre and more like a permanent home, even though it would would be used sparingly, and requested a bright and elegant space that was more user friendly.

The original entrance hall was unusually large for such a small flat, we immediately portioned off a section of it as a utility room, for a washing machine, dryer, linen store and ski/sports equipment area. The bathroom, which had previously been a shower room and separate w/c, were combined and extra corridor space incorporated to create a larger, more practical space. Art deco references in the styling nod to the building’s origins. To avoid entering the flat and being faced with a sea of doors, the utility space was cleverly hidden behind a fully operational bookshelf, and the master bedroom door was disguised as a full length mirror. These tricks not only add a sly sense of whimsy and character, but also provide the client with added storage, functionality and 2 stunning features.

The flooring, skirting and architraves were replaced throughout the property to give it a consistent flow. The warm, neutral colour palettes of greys and whites, combined with the dark wood tones and cold metal finishes keeps the interior fresh and bright, luxurious yet practical.

The kitchen uses some old fashioned tricks of the trade to make it appear larger and brighter, whilst the very modern styling brings a contemporary twist to the rest of the apartment. Specialised, considered, storage manages to keep the size down, whilst losing none of the required space or appeal, and the breakfast bar adds an bonus informal dining space to such a small flat.
