Small doesn’t have to mean insignificant and boring. Make every piece count and a small space can feel larger than life. From white shell, to layered urban retreat. A complete redesign and renovation of this one bed London apartment, creating a new start for the homeowner. A layered scheme of pale wood, natural stone and linen with touches of brass and laquered wood. The palette is a soft neutral base (perfect for our client) with a powerful deep burgundy top note that adds sensuality. Bespoke joinery creates ample storage with black metal details throughout that ground the whole space. We opened up all the doorways to full ceiling height and connected the kitchen to the space with a new opening. Interior design by 2LG Studio.
A midnight blue cocooning foyer, a mustard yellow accent chair, a Togo leather sofa in cognac with coordinating painted nook (love this!!!), more blue and yellow in the bedroom…. This apartment by Italian designer Grazia Caruso of Vesper Design is modern and vibrant and I really love the warmth of these colours playing off each other. Such good energy in this space.
A light and airy open plan was central to Framework‘s renovation of this one bedroom apartment on the fifth floor of the Schouwenhoek, an original apartment building by P.A. Warners, one of the founders of the Amsterdam School of modernist design. Gone are the small rooms branching off a central corridor while a rounded, concrete staircase beckons one up to a rooftop terrace and chillout room. Stylish, modern living while respecting the bones of this modernist building.

Embracing the old and blending in the new. I’m always a huge fan of touches of dark drama and cityhomeCOLLECTIVE does it just right every time. For this cityhomeCOLLECTIVE project, we purchased a dilapidated penthouse in the Premier Condo building, built in 1931, and turned it over to our interior design team for a substantial overhaul. We worked to preserve the character and charm of the building by preserving arched openings and elaborate moldings. Also infused a much-needed modern vibe throughout by designing a clean, minimal fireplace and choosing furniture that would proliferate styles and create layers to suggest that the space had evolved over time.
