Brief

We were hired originally to deliver a ‘pink and green’ bathroom in our clients newly purchased home. As they were so happy with the result of this bathroom revamp we were asked to look at the rest of the apartment.

This included updating the bedroom bespoke wardrobe, upcycle the current kitchen and buy key pieces of furniture and lighting & decorate throughout to really bring the whole look of the apartment together in a cohesive way.

The client wasn’t shy with using colour and wanted the idea of the ‘green and pink’ used in the bathroom to run throughout the whole apartment to create a cosy artistic space.

Design

The bathroom was very small so the first thing we did was hide all the pipes in the walls to allow for all the original boxing to be removed, which really opened up the space. As the space only allowed for a shower over the bath we had to really consider the shower screen as our client was very clear she loves baths but didn’t want to feel closed in with fixed glass panels, so we sourced a screen which folded away completely for when the client used the bath.

For the bespoke wardrobes we worked from the clients brief and adapted the look by adding the finishing touches by using cane webbing and beautiful handles to really add a bit of glamour. Whilst designing the internal layout dimensions we really listened to the clients need for the internal space and created an internal dressing table area with lighting.

For the open plan kitchen and living room we worked with some of the clients key pieces of furniture and chose complimentary colours and with a simple upcyle of the current kitchen it really brought the space to life.

Style

For the bathroom design we had a pink and green brief from the client and she wanted to use Ca’ Pietra tiles, so we took this onboard and advised on the right colour combinations and the design on how to lay them. For the floor we chose the Moroccan ‘Joya Green’ star tile and ran this up the side of the bath to make the space seem bigger. For the shower/bath area we chose ‘Carter Rose’ tile and laid them in a ‘vertical stack bond’ configuration, for the sink and toilet area we chose ‘Pop Verde Agua’ square tiles and painted the walls and door in Farrow & Ball ‘Pink Ground’.

For the shower fittings we went with brass finish, traditional sink and toilet and Pooky lights to compliment our client’s own mirror. We loved how our client was happy to mix chrome with gold fittings to really give it that eclectic look. With the addition of another Pooky fabric wall light to add a different pop of colour and a gorgeous pink and grey Cox & Cox wall cabinet to store those essential bottles, we feel this really completed the look.

The hallway was very narrow so to really give it an identity we decided to apply this stunning Farrow & Ball ‘Emerald Green’ to the walls with new Pooky pendants and framed art and lets not forget we painted the front door in Farrow & Ball ‘Rangwali’ to really pop next to the green walls.

For the open plan kitchen and living room we upcycled the kitchen by painting it in Edward Bulmer ‘Verdigris’ and adding these stunning Beata Hewman ‘Bow Handle’. We replaced the stainless steel sink with this gorgeous Villeroy & Boch sink and teamed it with a traditional antique brass tap. We also added a pop of yellow to the shelves, painted in Paint & Paper Library ‘Chinese Emperor’ and Little Greene ‘Confetti’, which are the perfect backdrop for the beautiful scalloped armchair.

Throughout the whole apartment we added antique brass fittings to compliment the strong wall colours in every room this included door handles, new bulk head outdoor lights for the balcony, handrail on the stairs and Corston antique brass switches and socket.
