A small apartment project with super successful results. A very happy client here, sometimes small projects are really satisfyin
Space was the major obstacle here, this was a small private non rental apartment for ‘boys holidays’ with the odd holiday with the wife thrown in.
Due to lack of space the lounge needed to include a sofa bed one – usually one of my personal dislikes as they can make lounge areas very limited in their layout. It also meant that whilst the apartment was designed for 4 people we had to consider 6. Everything from storage of linen, crockery space, to where do you put the duvets for the sofa bed when not in use, all had to be considered. Also to include a table to seat 6 in a space designed for 4 was a big challenge when electrics had already been set in place for overhead lighting.
The clients brief was taupe, greys and metallics avoiding bright colours – a friends and family ski pad which felt warm and welcoming .
Katy was the main lead on this project and it was right up her street as she loves dealing with a challenge, “ I love small spaces, making use of every nook and cranny, it always creates a challenge with inwards opening exterior doors and outward folding wardrobe doors.”
Bold, masculine choices were made on the lighting and a very clever use of mirrors reflecting light from wherever possible. We choose beautiful textured fabrics for the curtain adding warmth to ‘white box rooms’. Here a feature wall was a great way to add a sense of depth to a small living space, using a textured wallpaper that had the touch and feel of fabric. A great addition to this very cool ski pad.
Art work was sourced from Sue Neal, a local artist, to finish off the project.
