Developers’ First Furnishing Choice

After purchasing a property in Point West, our client wanted to substantially upgrade his two-bedroom, 973 sq. ft apartment. Although in need of a thorough update that required heavy refurbishment work, the client was sold by the property’s potential and proximity to South Kensington’s fantastic amenities.
The brief was for the InStyle team to refurbish the apartment and interior design the home using classic upgrades and a timeless palette, full of texture and fashion influences.
The owner was encouraged by our team to divide the kitchen and living room areas for functional and aesthetic benefits. Initially, the client did not want partitioning as one of his main purchasing decisions was based on the open-plan design that provided the illusion of more space. Our best-of-both-worlds solution was a crittall-style glass partition with a sliding transparent door. This required permission from the building manager that the team managed on the client’s behalf.
As well as a clear number of benefits of the crittall door partitioning, each room was able to have its own character which enables interior designer Samera to get particularly creative. Samera included small yet powerful, thoughtful details, like high-quality hardware finishes to give context to the various patterns and colours that the team employed.
This full, bespoke refurbishment and interior design project also included new wood flooring, full rewiring with spotlights and chandelier, built-in kitchen partition, full redecoration, bespoke furniture, curtains and built-in wardrobes. By liaising with the building manager on our client’s behalf, we were also able to obtain the permissions required for AC installation. We also dealt directly with the AC contractor until the installation was complete.
