Our client from Chelsea had been following our designs for some time, promising themselves that they would engage our services once they had finally found their forever home. Their brief was simple; include the owners own collection of flowers and accessories and make it undeniably elegant. In fact, they showed us many of our previous designs from this website and simply asked to have it “just like that”.
We obliged by making some of their favourite pieces, redesigned especially to size with a few extra little twists. Some of the cushion fabrics came from the ever-growing April Hamilton fabric library to give it that lovely sophisticated look our client sought to achieve. We chose sofas with a contemporary fabric to subtly interact with a bespoke Eglomise glass top coffee table. It complimented the scheme exactly as we had envisaged. Our eternally youthful buttoned April Hamilton chairs in crème linen fabric were placed majestically, either side of an eternally gorgeous Porta Romana thread lamp.
We finished with a mix of gold and silver accessories to set the foundations of luxury formal living in this most coveted of postcodes. The kitchen and breakfast room were designed to be less formal, offering our client the relaxed communal space where family and friends could come together. We specified an exclusive bespoke round inset chrome dining table, where up to eight guests could dine comfortably. This was paired with studded dining chairs from our forever-popular AH collection.
Encouraging our client out of their comfort zone allowed us to introduce a green wing chair with a contemporary geometric design. It allowed us to elevate the area rather than blend and was a great success.
With chrome lamps from Vaughan’s in Chelsea Harbour, Porta Romana wall lights, and a crystal chandelier, the room was relaxed enough for everyday living whist easily dressed for glamorous dinner parties. The luxury master bedroom followed the same brief. Tactile silks and sensual textures, a hand-made bed throw, and a bespoke deep buttoned headboard all fulfilled the brief. As with any design project there are always compromises. The house came with some substantial built in wardrobes which were already in a smart wooden finish.
However they no longer fitted with the overall design and style we were setting out to achieve. So, with our client’s budget and up-cycling in mind, we had them professionally painted and added crystal glass pumpkin handles to ensure fluidity across the space.
