The approach to this design was to create a family home which was peaceful and elegant

BM Design commenced work on a large design and build development featuring a challenging double basement dig at the beginning of 2014. They worked from inception with the architects including planning and listed building consent through to completion to renovate this impressive 5,000 sq ft private residence.

The project brief was to create a bespoke family home located in Notting Hill, London, with a touch of Mayfair glamour, designed for the client’s day to day living requirements; for their children to grow and play, to showcase their ever expanding art collection and to entertain guests.

The approach to the design was to create a family home, which was peaceful and elegant yet homely. Through a neutral palette using tones of grey, pale yellow and light and airy window treatments we were able to transform the previously dark spaces, capitalising on the natural daylight in key rooms and embracing, opposed to fighting against, the darker less formal rooms.

Textures and luxurious finishes were crucial to add interest to the scheme, complementing plush grey velvets and taupe silks with stark contrasting high gloss black lacquers, brass inlays and deep graphite shagreen.

The clients particularly wanted to restore the Victorian grandeur of the property while being sensitive to detailing and maximising on their budget. The use of panel moulds and mirror inlays throughout the property and in key areas such as the hallways were able to add interest and glamour whilst restricting the use of expensive silk wallpapers to central panels and beveled
mirror inlays to reflect light and further enhance the luxurious feel of the room.
