The transformation on this Paddington terrace bedroom and bathroom was remarkable. The client brief was to create a hotel plush feeling where one could relax and escape to. Pushing out to the boundary walls we created an 8 meter x 4 meter bedroom which included all built in custom joinery to keep the room as slimline and contemporary as possible. Using a porters paint finish we kept the wall colours, joinery and ceiling all in the same matt finish. Contrasting with a feature recycled timber support beam and black glazed feature windows that open up to a courtyard garden below, the room is flooded with natural light all day long making it feel calm and relaxing. We used feature lighting by Monde Luce and Artemide in the main bedroom and ensuite bathroom.
The ensuite was tiled in Elba marble on the floor and walls. Spanish handmade tiles in a soft mint were used as a feature wall in the shower recess. Designer bathroom fittings and a huge skylight window give this bathroom a feeling of luxury and style. A wool knotted light carpet was chosen to keep the consistency throughout and compliment the surrounding finishings.
French dark linen curtains and black blinds teamed with a charcoal linen bedhead work beautifully against the bedroom palette creating a contrast of accents in the room. The client has fabulous black and white artwork that feature prominently throughout the room.
Inspiration for this courtyard renovation was simply a love of Rome. We wanted to create a perfect garden window that can be seen from the entry of the house looking right through an open planned living space to the rear of the house.
A garage was built discreetly behind this wall with a narrow side entry to the back. Feature wall tiling in encaustic spanish green tiles were complimented with the sculptural planting of mature cloud trees, a Roman water feature and designer lighting was used to add a wow factor that allows light to reflect and flow into the house. An oversized mirror from MCM house creates a feeling of space, light and shadow against the old reused brick tiles sourced from Gatherco and popham black and white floor tiles contrast perfectly against the old and the new.
Feature wall pots of Italian rosemary and a discreet designer built in bbq give the perfect ambience for entertaining and enjoyment in this little garden of Rome.
