Our latest source of inspiration comes from London, where interior architectural company Aorta invites us to have a look at one of its most recent accomplishments. But first, a little something about the professionals in charge…
Being fully aware that creating a stylish, comfortable and trendy interior can be quite tricky, not to mention time-consuming, Aorta makes all the difference by working one-on-one with clients. This is to discover exactly what their needs and wants are, but also to acquire more information on their existing spaces to get a feel for the client’s personal style and taste.
Conjuring up breathtaking spaces, creating bespoke furniture and delivering commissioned artwork is nothing new for Aorta. After all, this firm, one of London’s most creative design studios, is quite seasoned when it comes to working across various sectors, which can be seen in its expanding portfolio detailing boutique hotels, restaurants, private residences, retail interiors, and art galleries.
And the company’s keen eye for detail, as well as its commitment to deluxe results and satisfied clients, is evidenced by its 14 years of experience in the furniture industry.
Let’s get inspired by one of their residential projects entitled ‘The Eclectic Kitchen’.
Where many designers play it safe by staying in a neutral colour palette (and working with a restricted selection of materials), Aorta decided to be brave by colouring this space full of character – and it works splendidly!
Being an open-plan kitchen already restricted what the designers could do here. However, the dusty sky blue splashed across the living room wall on the other side complements the warm earthy tones of the kitchen perfectly. And the fact that an abundance of natural light floods indoors already goes a long way in making this kitchen seem much more open and welcoming!
As the designers had very limited space to work with, it was decided to have the kitchen, dining area, and living room flow seamless into one another.
Behold: a modern and generous L-shaped sofa perfectly framing the far side of the room while becoming part of the culinary corner; a timber dining table with matching chairs beautifully adding a touch of the industrial style into the space; and a kitchen with off-white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances to balance with the rest of the room’s colour schemes while conjuring up a cosy little cooking corner.
The result? An interior space that proves size does not matter – it’s what you do with it.
When working with small rooms, one can’t play around with furniture- and décor pieces that waste precious space. Hence, here we find a very clever layout, a decent amount of storage areas, plus adequate accessories that are both quirky and practical (like these wall units resembling oversized clothing pegs for important notes, reminders and a calendar).
Let’s enjoy a few more images that further portray the cleverness that went into conjuring up ‘The Eclectic Kitchen’.
From one interior space that inspires to another, let’s discover this Three-storey maisonette in Chelsea that oozes excellence.
