The London neighbourhood of Belgravia is known as one of the most expensive areas in the world, hosting some of the most prestigious homes and well-to-do names as residents. TLA Studio is responsible for the interior of this breathtaking apartment, which plays with stunning material textures and a wonderful interior spatial layout; a truly spectacular setting that must be viewed in full to be believed. Take note of the various details scattered through the home—from the intricate ceiling work to incredible statement pieces of marble. So, without further ado, let's take a look…
It is only fitting to capitalise on a stunning view over Belgravia, with an extraordinary rooftop terrace to match! The dove grey couches complement both the slate rooftops of the neighbouring roofs, the white balustrade and pale grey tiles. You can just imagine the balmy evenings spent outside when the weather is fine, in solitude or with friends—the perfect city escape!
The lounge room is yet another picture perfect example. A mixture of soft beige and cream, this is a really a setting that epitomises class and luxury. The mixture of different furniture shapes and styles provides an interesting contrast in the muted scenery, balanced wonderfully by the pop of brown on the curtains and on various pieces of furniture. Take note, too, of the stunning cornice work in the ceiling, a carefully salvaged aspect of this room that provides us with a glance at its history.
The dining room could be seen in the background of the living room, cordoned off by a series of semi-transparent sliding panels. This is a great way to ensure that the available light can penetrate every corner, allowing the spaces where the occupants relax and entertain to feel light filled and spacious. This dining room is really something special—an effect created by a unique oval-shaped table which is highlighted by a large skylight overhead. Again, the white and brown colour scheme is evident here too, tying the two adjacent rooms together nicely.
Continuing the wonderful theme in the dining room and lounge, the kitchen is too, a wonderful melange of white and beige colours. The marble kitchen island is the standout in this room, highlighted by the unique vein of grey running over the surface. Though the choice of colours is fairly limited, the textural differences and array of material qualities provide all the contrast and variation that this space needs.
In this first bedroom, we see a very contemporary take on the traditional four poster bed. A very unique element indeed, this framework shows off the true purpose of this bedroom—relaxation. The colour palette provides a serene and neutral setting, balanced wonderfully by the rich material textures, carefully placed artwork and chaise lounge. There is a certain geometry evidenced in this space, created by the linear nature of the bed frame and sleek decorative features.
Into the bathroom, we see a stunning mix of reflective surfaces and marble. Again, the white-on-white scheme is broken up by interesting textures with the lack of natural light being accounted for by highly mirrored panels. This is a clever
trick up the sleeve of interior designs to make a space look bigger and more light-filled and has worked to great effect in this beautifully contemporary ensuite bathroom.
Just like out of a scene from a 5 star hotel, this bedroom is multifaceted both in decoration and layout. The coffered ceiling provides yet another beautiful feature, causing the eye to think the room is taller and wider than it actually is. Stormy greys have been introduced into this bedroom, afforded with a pop of colour by the bold artwork on the rear wall.
Lastly, but definitely not least, we are treated to a view inside another one of the bathrooms. As you might notice, the layout is quite similar to the ensuite seen above, yet the detail from the marble has been replaced by a high gloss surface of white. The window to the left of the image bathes the space in natural light, which is bounced off from every nook and cranny thanks to the mirrors and fresh colour scheme. The double sink means there will be no arguments in the morning when two people are contesting to get ready—yet another peaceful aspect to this already serene and poised apartment.
