This project has to be one of my favourites and a lesson to both the team at April Hamilton and past and potential clients as this really stayed as near to my vision as is possible in the world of design. Whilst we listen very carefully to the clients brief we have 25 years of experience of remodelling large and listed buildings so provided your design team can substantiate their design path and explain their rationale my advise as a seasoned designer is to trust them! Because the results will speak for themselves as they did on this London project. The VIP clients wanted a family home but with an air of sophistication and plenty of space for their many fiends and family to be able to stay.
Most of the items of furniture are bespoke and designed by April Hamilton, with a specially commissioned piece from lighting supremo’s Bocci at the lighting Foundry. We cascaded LED ice globes down 4 flights of stairs to give a sense of play to the otherwise super sophisticated integrated lighting system. Our lighting on this project was supported by Porta Roman, Vaughans and Andrew Martin which were strategically positioned within or on our bespoke Luxe joinery pieces.
Flooring is huge part of interior design and we used an engineered polished American oak to support the bespoke Jacaranda rugs with leather or suede trims. Keeping things interesting we used a bespoke rug for the playroom from Alternative flooring, which was fun, bright and light and anchored the scheme of hand painted barcodes on the wall & the great fun of the bubble chair offered endless hours of “hanging about” for the children and their friends. My personal favourite was Paddington bear painted on their daughters bedroom wall – a real treat for both the designers and the little girl..
