This bijoux 2 bedroom flat in the heart of Victoria is used as a pied-a-terre by its owners who live outside of London. Set in a beautiful turn of the century apartment block, the basement flat was bursting with period features – it was simply tired, unloved and in need of a complete refresh. The brief was simple – inject colour, charm and warmth and turn this functional flat into an inviting home from home – whilst being respectful of the history and grandeur of the building. First step was to look at the layout, remove unnecessary stud walls and open up the (albeit tiny) entrance hall and kitchen. We then added colour and texture through selecting rich and sumptuous fabrics – and adding brass accents and reclaimed fixtures to give the flat an authentic, lived in feel. Antique, vintage and modern furniture sit alongside each other, with a vibrant blue/green colour thread weaving coherently throughout each room.
