Fostering Luxurious Living in a New Build
We often get asked what kinds of projects we take on and what types of homes. In all honesty, it is a range. We take on projects from new builds, where we will be working off plans, to house builds where we will be working with the architects to get the plans right. Then there are also refurbishments and extensions. Each one has its own challenges and this project was no exception.
You would like to think that purchasing a property in a luxury development in Fitzrovia would mean that you would have space for all the ‘normal’ amenities. However, you would be wrong. These bedrooms were tiny, so small that it was essential that we went for bespoke beds. We had to fake the headboards in one of the rooms as we couldn’t spare 8cm to be able to put a padded headboard in.
Thankfully we didn’t have the same kind of problem in the master bedroom. It had its own dressing area as well as a balcony and ensuite. The challenge with this room was creating the extra large headboard in a way that meant it would fit up the stairs and into the property.
It worked out really well and accentuated the space available in the room. It also has all the electrical sockets built into it for complete control of the lights from the comfort of your bed. (check out that headboard here!)
The living-dining space is bathed in natural light, so we needed something exceptional to dress the windows in. We went with a beautiful Boeme fabric as it brought together all the colours we needed in the lounge.
We love a good colour palette, and the lounge colours for this project were a joy to work with. The colour palette was a combination of purples, gold and lilacs against dark Macassar ebony woods. We did have a bit of trouble getting the coffee table to match the rest, but once we had gotten it to the shade that we wanted the whole room came together. We knew it was going to be everything that the client could dream of, and he was completely blown away by it. Seeing how happy it made him when he first walked in made getting the sofa in with a cherry picker completely worth it!
