Located in 77 Mayfair, one of London’s most exciting new buildings, this project brings colour and eclecticism to a Manhattan-style Squire & Partners designed apartment. Designed for an international family who are first-time London buyers, the property itself features a multitude of glass and open loft layout. The space calls for large decorative features, surprising colour contrasts—a teal curved sofa and bold pink dining chairs—and unusual finishes including an impressive faux marble. With the addition of a wonderful bar, the space will become an ideal London base.
Studio Vero has planned the refurbishment of this Grade-II listed house overlooking one of Knightsbridge’s most prestigious squares. The young, international clients have been keen to capture a Parisian attitude while paying homage to the stateliness of their historic home. Panelled walls, imposing double doors and marble cut flooring in mint, jet and white tessellating tiles will create an atmospheric living space. Set across five floors, including a gym, exquisite internal courtyard and four generous bedrooms, this home intends to offer contemporary opulence around every corner.
Inspired by Charles Voysey and the Arts & Crafts movement, this exceptional family home lends itself to entertaining on a grand scale. A gallery entrance hall is set to lead to a vast drawing room with doors opening directly on to wonderful gardens, while a rich palette, enhanced with bronze fixtures, timber flooring and traditional panelling will underscore a sense of heritage. In contrast, a more contemporary wing apportioned with Crittel windows, will offer an informal space for the five-strong family to enjoy the wonderful vistas.
St. John's Wood
This spacious new home designed by classical architect, Ben Pentreath belongs to a long-standing Studio Vero client. Over the past five years, the design has evolved around planning and renovations, becoming a labour of love and collaboration. Beyond the beautifully proportioned façade, visitors will find a striking contemporary contrast. A Scandinavian palette of light wood, eau de nil and powder pink will be punctuated with bold furniture and one-off design accents, while a blend of materials including brass and timber aims to create an elegant, but also eminently liveable abode.
This project involves the full gutting and refurbishment of a consummate Chelsea duplex. From a decorative perspective, the aim is to fuse tradition and modernity. Totally resisting a single design outlook, each room cherry picks elements from disparate disciplines. The use of colour—powder blue, soft raspberry, striking wallpapers and an unconventional pale pink dressing room—will work to upturn expectations, while curated objects and artworks will underline the confidence of this client’s taste. One-off ceramics, antiques and textiles are set to add layers and magpie-like richness.
