A Timeless and Feminine Home with Hollywood, Art Deco Glamour
Project of the Week
This week’s instalment of the #SBIDinspire interior design series features the residential design for an elegant 3-bedroom apartment in London’s prestigious One Hyde Park development in Knightsbridge. The alluring combination of soft neutrals with accents of burnt orange, petrol blue and dusky plum melt together in a holistic blend of Hollywood glamour, balanced with Art Deco styles to create a luxurious and contemporary feel for this timeless, feminine home.
Sector: Residential Design
Project: Project Vera, One Hyde Park
Location: London, United Kingdom
What was the client’s brief?
The layout, flow and final dressing of the apartment was hugely important to the client as this was the first time she was creating a home purely for herself. This is now her main residence and it represents a moment of self-discovery for her through design. The space needed to be multi-functional in order to work for her when she is there alone but also cater for when her children and grandchildren stay.
What inspired the interior design of the project?
The exquisite residential space is designed in a Hollywood Deco inspired scheme of soft neutrals, enriched by strong accents of burnt orange, petrol blue and dusky plum. Central to the living area is an elegant twisted glass chandelier with polished 24kt gold. Striking geometric patterns and bespoke marquetry joinery flow throughout, creating a contemporary feel to this timeless and feminine home.
What was the toughest hurdle your team overcame during the project?
This is our seventh project in One Hyde Park and so we always have to truly challenge ourselves and push the boundaries in order to make each apartment we design in the building unique.
What was your team’s highlight of the project?
I loved working on the dining room in the apartment – it featured a silk wallpaper with an hexagonal print, referencing the art deco period, which was challenging to install but created a beautiful end result. I was also very happy with the glamorous glass chandelier we added to the reception.
I actually ran into the client recently and she told me how much she was enjoying living in the space – hearing such positive feedback and knowing we were able to deliver exactly what a client was looking for in their home is very meaningful.
