Kim’s favourite bathrooms 2019 – part 1

Posted on Wed, 25 Dec 2019 by KiM

As you likely guessed from the teaser photo, this is another wildly creative and playful home design by 2LG StudioA double-fronted period property in South London that was in need of a personality injection to make it feel like home. The young professional newly-weds who live here love our use of colour and the juxtaposition of period features and contemporary design. Dark floors unite the spaces, grounding them and allowing us to be playful in our designs for this vibrant couple. Embossed wallpaper on the ceilings and under the dado rail in the hallway, strengthen the impact of period fireplace and coving, giving the perfect backdrop for eclectic elements of contemporary design in the lighting and furnishings.

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.

Restoration of a Regency villa

Posted on Thu, 12 Dec 2019 by midcenturyjo

The Regency villa had seen better days, sadly divided into 3 flats with clumsy additions and awkward spaces. Enter London-based interior designers Harding & Read who created a family home with all the mod cons while retaining its historic proportions and details. Atmospheric with its own sense of place the home feels like it has evolved over generations not resurrected recently.
