Velvet upholstery, herringbone floors…but things are not quite as they seem…Would you Love to Live Here?
In a London terrace house some rather interesting interior design
has been occurring.
It's what happens when luxurious traditional finishes,
like velvet, are mixed side by side with Eames furniture.
And when a palette involves pale smokey blue-greys,
crisp white, pale golden timbers and a smattering of jewel-hued blobs of
unexpected colours like mulberry-juice purple and egg yolk yellow.
This property was a collaboration between Gianni Botsford Architects
and the owner, and as it has recently been on the market,
let's have a look to see if you could imagine living in such a richly-eclectic spot,
which the agents describe as...
The Bulthaup kitchen, with a traditional bricked floor,
looks out to a lushly green courtyard via pivoting glass doors.
Many of the furnishings are from Abigail Ahern
(recognise the dog lamps?),
Jimmie Martin and Tom Dixon.
Now that's an eclectic mix for starters.
The simplest of simple white stairs,
as a contrast to the richness of the moody palette in other areas,
creates more of an sculptural artwork than just a means of moving from up to down.
Looking at the floor plan,
I can't help but agree that it is a bachelor playground.
It's a very luxurious arrangement of rooms….
utter decadence and why ever not?
The property was listed at £6,000,000
and is located in W2…close to Westbourne Grove.
