Modernizing an Arts & Crafts home

Posted on Tue, 12 Mar 2019 by KiM

I wanted to share another to-die-for project by London design firm 2LG StudioA 5 bed Arts & Crafts home given our modern twist with contemporary craft and bespoke elements. It was love at first sight and we wanted to maintain the strong heritage of the architecture, whilst bringing it up to date with our new take. We created a bespoke colourway of our floral, handprinted, wallpaper (designed in collaboration with Custhom) and our hand knotted rug for FloorStory. Giving a through-line on the ground floor – our personal take on the nature inspired prints of William Morris. Much of the original oak panelling, doors and pillars is left lovingly exposed, with the rest of the home given a neutral base to let the artworks and antique pieces shine. The lighting in the hallway, and throughout in brass and black metal, has a leaf motif that is entirely appropriate for the Arts & Crafts movement, yet adds a modern wit.

A bespoke brass and oak dining table, commissioned by us from british design brand, Novocastrian, with contemporary chairs by Ercol, becomes the centrepiece of the home. 

The Liberty of London upholstery on the banquet seating giving another nod to the cultural heritage of the property. 

This home could not be more fun!! LOVE IT!!! By 2LG StudioAn edwardian cottage in the charming setting of St Albans in need of modernisation. We re-designed the entire property, added a large kitchen extension, first floor extension and loft, doubling the size of the property to make a characterful family home. The clients passion for travel, the sea and surfing, is evident throughout with many items sourced from salvage yards and antique shops in Sri Lanka. The striking blue pillars are a great example. Throughout the property we specified bespoke encaustic tiling, patterned carpet, exposed plaster, floral wallpaper and vintage lighting to give a lived in, eclectic home that reflects the warmth of the family. In the kitchen, custom cement island in pale blue and grey swirls compliments the solid wood worktops and impressive range cooker. This happy home has a through-line of  bold colour that brings it life, something that is a signature of our design work.

Back with more from Jenika Kurtz Cuadra as she happens to have the cutest studio that she recently completed so I had to share that too. If you ever thought painting a brick fireplace in bubblegum pink was a crazy idea, think again!!! (Photos: Amy Bartlam)

A Toronto penthouse in pink, black and white

Posted on Thu, 28 Feb 2019 by KiM

This Toronto penthouse is what I would call feminine glam, with lots of white and accents of pink and black, and some really fun wallpaper accent walls for drama (and photo ops). So fun! Designed by Studio P InteriorsOur client is one of the top YouTubers in Canada, and one of her main requirements was to make every angle of this penthouse photo-worthy. We designed a large-scale custom trim pattern on the living room/lounge ceilings to create interest above, art deco inspired custom wall paneling in the master bedroom, with contemporary furnishings and art throughout the interior. Custom kitchen with spanish quartz stone, contrasted with matte black faucets and lighting, as well as unique black marble handles. The marble-inspired tile on the living room fireplace was one of our favourite focal points, running the tiles vertically to create drama and height, finished with a sleek gold edge. Fully custom master closet design with brass accents, back-lit shelves, and glass enclosed shoe shelves. Lastly we introduced pattern and texture through a variety of chic and edgy wall-coverings –also great for photo backdrops.
