Penthouse in the UK is Entirely White on the Inside
June 28, 2016
White on white interior design can be an extremely tough colour scheme to be able to carry out well. It needs a large amount of planning and a very clear focus so as to not look cold and empty. For this client this project was her dream, she has always wanted a home that was as bright and white as we could get it! She didn’t want a completely empty box though, she wanted a warmth to her home and for it to have a very clear personality. Something we feel it does so well! The images of the bed are some of our most loved and has been added to over 50,000 idea books on Houzz.
White Walls and Floors
White is not often seen on walls outside of galleries and we made a very clear decision when using bright white for all the walls. We took the active decision to try and create as few dark spots throughout the property so that the white would continue to shine rather than greying out in the corners unless we had specified that exact effect within the design.
White interior design schemes can look classic and clean without looking stark and boring. White gloss handless cabinets were a must (the central cabinets are electric touch opening) and we have paired it with a designer white Corian worktop that we have rounded at the ends to create a warmer finish. Kitchens are a fantastic place for artwork and this beautiful piece was a drunken stroke on genius created by the client using a painted white canvas and colourful drinking straws – fun and a beautiful memory!
The bedroom for this property is actually quite small and it was essential to make it look as spacious as possible. Using a floating bed meant that the floor space and openness of the room was a feature. Setting the bed low also helped to create a spacious feeling. Floating items of normally floor based furniture didn’t stop with the bed though. All the side tables and chests of drawers in this room also float. Opening up the space rather and allowing a wonderful flow that wouldn’t have been posssible any other way.
White in a bathroom is often so boring, so we injected a fabulous mosaic on the back wall. Usually shown with the silver crawling up the wall we switched it around so that the silver within the mosaic almost looks like rain drops. This amazing mosaic is from Bisazza and is actually made from glass and white gold! Luxury for this amazing spa like area.
