This loud but charming Hell's Kitchen penthouse is a unique take on how we don't have to stay classic to stay beautiful. Using a variety of retro-chic and modern designs combined with intense features, Bhavin Taylor Design have focused on mixture of practicality and style in this top of the world apartment.
The bold elements in this lounge-diner stand out exceptionally well against the neutral backdrop. The feature wall is perfect for showcasing a nice picture or painting, whilst the translucent curtains emit a pleasant ambient glow to pick up on the wall itself and the other stronger colours of the rooms.
A great place to kick back with friends of an evening on the couch or a gourmet meal at the table.
The remarkably simplistic and modern design of the kitchen is very pleasing to the senses. The streamline countertop and work surface gives off the feel of cleanliness that you ultimately desire in the kitchen. Furthermore the pale backdrop of a room like this is the perfect place to draw everyone's attention to a nice floral display (as seen above) or centre piece.
For guests, the feature red at back of the counter adds a bit of fun and ultimately livens up the entire kitchen; putting the finishing touch on the practical but simplistic style used here.
The many textures and materials in this bedroom could give an overcrowded effect, instead the use of the mirrors and furniture succeed in making a retro-chic décor that loans itself quite well. The variety of different types of materials, such as the rug and throws also aid in bringing the room more to life, whilst the dressers promote a touch of class refine.
This penthouse is a real exhibition on how to incorporate loud colour into a home without them being to overbearing. Here we see again the pale background bringing the bold colours into effect. Bhavin Taylor Design have really pulled out the stops in achieving this goal throughout the penthouse. A perfect place for parties and entertaining as well as a practical professional home, all in one.
