I found interior designers very helpful with their recommendations for a designer. Once meetings were set up I was delighted with my personal choice. I appreciate all the help and advice I was given by interior designers who have reputable designers to hand for recommendation.
 
 
 

Interior Design Project for a London Townhouse

 

Contemporary design in a period London townhouse In Kensington

 

Our clients were moving back to London from Switzerland and needed help refurbishing their 7 bedroom, period townhouse in Kensington.  They were looking for an interior designer who could give them a functional yet elegant and edgy family home. They needed someone who would really listen to what they wanted and needed look after the entire project.  The interior designer we introduced them to did just this.  The result is a unique townhouse and functional home with many layers of interest and elegance: “I was delighted with my choice of designer. I appreciate all the help and advice I was given by Interior Designers.”

 

The Kensington townhouse needed to be completely re-designed and re-structured to fit a family of six children and a live-in housekeeper.   Our clients had no furniture whatsoever so the space was a blank canvas. Our designer and client worked closely together to create a classic-contemporary scheme with an edge.  The interior architecture was designed in a timeless style with attention given to every detail.  Once the ideal layout and backdrop was in place, the journey of furnishing, finishes and colour began.

 

A neutral palette of greys was used for the walls and woodwork but edgy wallpaper in the cloakroom and den mix this up.  Unique art, furniture and lighting was sourced from a variety of eclectic suppliers and curated to create truly unique spaces.

 

The kitchen has a distinctly urban feel with industrial-style lighting and taps offset by wood finishes and modern shaker style kitchen units. The bespoke cabinetry maximises the use of space. The kitchen flows into a dining/family area which has exposed brick walls.  The relaxed and slightly urban style is enhanced by the distressed leather banquette seating but balanced by linen soft furnishings. Orange pops against the palette of greys and brick.

 

The beautiful, light, double reception room retains its period detailing including exquisite cornicing and fireplaces.  Its high ceilings are enhanced by the choice of light fittings.  This classic interior architecture acts as backdrop to unusual, contemporary pieces of furniture and art work. Using an inspired palette of colours our designer has created a warm, interesting, layered space which cannot be found anywhere else.

 

The bedrooms are more classic in style with the master bedroom and bathroom being particularly luxurious. The grey velvets, verre egolimise mirrors and a classic free-standing bath against full-length silk curtains are sumptuous without being too rich.  The walk-in shower is completely clad in a white marble with a stunning vein running through it.

 

The children’s and guest bedrooms similarly lack no attention to detail from the Venetian mirrors and bespoke wall coverings to each exquisite curtain tie back. A study and cinema room-den in the basement complete this versatile and contemporary family home. “I will be happy to tell all what a huge success this project has become. I absolutely love my house and have much to be thankful for.”
