Putney Wharf is one of the most coveted locations in London, renowned for its stunning waterside views of the river Thames and thriving independent food scene. A guide book written in 1903 stated that Putney was
one of the most pleasant suburbs in London thanks to its close proximity to both green open spaces and the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan area. Given that it's possible for the occupants of Putney Wharf to have the best of so many worlds, it comes as no surprise that we'd find homes in the area being updated to suit 21st century needs. Today we are touring through an elegant and sophisticated apartment completed by Vasechkin Design. You will soon see a light filled and well resolved apartment fitted with all the latest furniture and mod cons to make this home a haven of respite and relaxation for a busy couple or family. Take a look…
The living room is a wonderful melange of stunning modern furniture pieces and well thought out design. To create a more enclosed and intimate space, the lounges have been positioned to face inwards. This clever trick creates distinction between various zones in one open space, yet doesn't sacrifice any of the available light. In the background, bathed in natural light, you can see an elegant black grand piano—what a feature! You can also see that the windows wrap the building, providing the occupants with an unprecedented view of the wharf below.
This contemporary dining room is part of the open plan living room, creating a space that is conducive to interaction and conversation. Whether dining or relaxing with friends or family, it can be done in a welcoming and inviting environment. The colour of the upholstered dining chairs complement the stark white table and moody tones evidenced throughout the rest of the space.
The kitchen is a serene mix of grey tones and stark white, with a cleverly resolved kitchen layout. As you can see, despite the small dimensions, the space has been used as effectively as possible. The majority of the appliances are hidden from sight, with the exception of the oven which has been installed into the extruded corner of the worktop. The continuity provided by the glossy white cabinets maintains the line of sight, instantly making us think the kitchen is larger than it actually is.
On the flip side of the above image, we see a more relaxed approach to dining through the implementation of a small round table and two matching bar chairs. This layout gives the occupants flexibility; meaning they can have a coffee or meal on the run, or a more casual dinner should the situation arise.
The bedroom is a real treat—modern furniture and sleek design come together to create a stellar contemporary ambience. We absolutely love the mirrored surface of the wardrobe, with its unusual square panelling that ties in nicely to the pale gold colour evidenced on the bedspread. In stark contrast, the couch and tallboy provide a dramatic contrast to a fairly muted contrast adding an interesting aspect to the room.
