Life on a grand scale

A busy international businessman wanting to combine the elegance of his home (a magnificent light-filled apartment set within a Georgian building with 4.5m ceilings) with his love of Italian contemporary chic.

Having reconfigured the layout to optimize the floorplan and to capitalize on the extraordinary ceiling heights, we set about creating a beautiful yet practical kitchen for a serious cook and a bespoke library for all of his objets trouvés! For the interior decoration, and to save on our client’s resources, we created vivid digital mood boards and couriered carefully selected samples and swatches across town!

The result – dramatic shards of calacatta marble, polished nickel art deco fittings and fixtures and a palette of greys, teals and aubergines were offset by a vintage Murano chandelier and bespoke furniture in vivid lacquers and textured veneers.

“I was so impressed with the team’s ability to communicate the thought process behind their design vision, and their ability to challenge my own thinking.”
