This three-bedroom maisonette spreads across two floors and tastefully demonstrates the elegance of simplicity. Organic materials such as leather and wood combine with exposed brick and tempting soft furnishings to establish a sense of intimacy. The property is considerately arranged, with features that maintain proportion and cohesion as well as style.
The generous open plan living and dining area is an embrace of design’s most warming concepts. Cosy leather sofas layered with soft cushions, timber floors covered with a vibrant rug, a modern fireplace alongside earthy hues create a homely and inviting atmosphere. The symmetrical wall art, cleverly reflected in the mirror, echo the patterned rug, while the wooden floor is carried up into the wall shelves for rhythm.
The dining area features a stunning contemporary chandelier that spotlights the curved dining table and chairs. The smooth rounded forms are contrasted by the backdrop of the exposed brick feature wall that presents an edgy, industrial character to enliven the space. The sophisticated circular mirror introduces an air of sophistication to offset the traditional aesthetic of the wall.
The kitchen is all polished granite and stainless steel, a testament to its functionality while the fluidity of the area enables easy entertaining. Just beyond the kitchen lies a decked terrace for when the warmer weather arrives. Destined for a dinner party, its an enviable spot for hosting, encircled by a light bamboo frame for privacy without being overbearing.
On the lower ground floor, two of the bedrooms have access to a rear garden and all three have en-suites. Shades of greys and creams keep the colour palette subtle in the two primary bedrooms, allowing the rooms to take their cue from the artistic inspiration of the owner. Artwork that expresses their creative passion enhances the area, while the thoughtful soft furnishings such as the knitted throw and ribbed linen provide the necessary textural complexity.
The master bedroom features an indulgent bathroom; a freestanding curved tub with Flemish scroll legs maintain the opulence of this free-flowing room while the French doors open it up to the garden. A flush wooden walkway leads through the space lined with stones, blurring the boundaries between the indoors and the outdoors. White on white, the garden is a tranquil and infinitely calm affair. Another set of French doors lead to the second bedroom that has been repurposed as a lounge and workout area. A morning workout is made more tempting with such soothing surroundings.
