The bold live/work space of 2LG Studio

Posted on Tue, 17 Dec 2019 by KiM

The creativity and boldness of South East London design firm 2LG Studio continues to blow my mind. This is a lesson on breaking all the rules, using colour in magical ways and embracing shapes. Each element has been inspired by found objects and prints from within the house as well as our own design travels. Its previous owners clearly had a passion for interiors as it had pink walls throughout, and deep green carpets. In the loft we found a stash of old interior magazines from the 50’s and 60’s as well as remnants of fabrics. As the house evolves with us, it has been through many stages, acting not only as a home, but as a backdrop for our work as designers. So far we have restored the roof and chimneys, the original sash windows and floors. We have completed the pink bathroom, updated the front door, given ourselves a wonder closet for a WC, created an entrance hallway the previous owners would have loved, we hope, and given the lounge added panelling to go with the original coving and ceiling rose, based on pencil markings we found on the walls under the old wallpaper. The open plan kitchen/diner/studio space is the heart of the project and was the inspiration behind many new product designs.

Katherine says:

Can you please provide the source for the blue carpet on the stair?

KiM says:

2LG designed it with Brintons – it’s an archive design they rescaled and recoloured.

Laura says:

Can you please tell me what Klein blue paint they used for the cabinet interior?

midcenturyjo says:

The cabinet was made by John Lewis of Hungerford and is a spray finish not an actual off-the-shelf paint colour.
