A new interior design project in London’s Farringdon area
We’ve been working on a new interior design project for a couple in London’s Farringdon area. It’s an exciting location in a converted print works, just around the corner from Farringdon station and all of the redevelopment works related to London’s Crossrail project. It’s a redesign of the interior of their flat to make better use of the spaces for how they live.
Redesigning the interior layout
Their main open-plan reception space is currently dominated by the kitchen, and as part of a complete refurbishment of this area we’re reworking it to put more of the emphasis on the sitting room area. It’s going to be a more relaxing space, and as well as one which will allow the owners to exhibit more of their beautiful artwork collection.
In the hallway of the apartment we’re using gallery-style track-lighting. This will allow the lighting to be adapted to suit each artwork, and also to provide complete flexibility when they’re moved around from time-to-time.
A sleek new kitchen with adaptable furniture
We’ll be fitting a sleek new German kitchen, and using some ingenious furniture that can transform from a console table into a dining table – so things that aren’t needed all of the time don’t have to be there all of the time. The space will be able to be adapted for different needs at different times – this will be the key to making the interior of this flat work successfully for the owners.
We’re also replacing the tired flooring with Douglas Fir – a finish we used before to wonderful effect in this previous London project in Hampstead. It’s a gorgeous timber with soft, warm tones, and it creates a feel of light and space.
An elegant new bathroom with hidden storage
The bathroom is compact, but we’re refitting it to create a much more elegant and usable room. There was a lot of dead space, and as well as using gorgeous new finishes and fittings, we’re designing lots of hidden storage into the room. It doesn’t matter how big your bathroom isn’t – you probably still need to find the same amount of storage!
We’ll be going on site with this one shortly – it’s just around the corner from our recent interiors project at the Barbican Estate and a vibrant area of London that we love working in. We’ll have another update soon.
