Modern Interior Design

This lovely modern penthouse flat in the heart of desirable Hampstead was definitely lacking something. Our client wanted something extra to take his living space to the next level of modern design. Metal, blasted glass and a return to wallpaper were to be our inspirations.

To add character, an accent wall was wallpapered with a dark brown paper that bears a subtle yet bold pattern. This added depth during the day and warmth after dark. Cumbersome double doors through to the landing and the private lift door were removed adding to the spacious feeling of the living room. The chimney breast was treated to the same wallpaper finish as the accent wall. This makes it the focal point of the room and lessens the crowding effect of the awkward angles in that corner of the interior. A bespoke metal and glass display unit finishes the decor.

Bespoke blasted glass doors (not pictured) separate the modern kitchen from the lounge.

The stairwell was originally lit by having a section of the wall in glass. This was replaced by a section of clear glass blocks. The light was retained and a rather ugly internal window was transformed to a sophisticated design feature. The glass theme was extended to the kitchen doors. The original wooden doors were replaced with double sand-blasted glass doors.

 Now the landing was opened up to the living space we could use it to feature some modern design elements. A bespoke backlit mirror was hung over a custom made, glass-topped console table, both made to complement the metal and glass display unit in the living room. Against the glittering backdrop of the glass block wall the simplicity of the bespoke metal balustrade accentuates the clean, modern feel.
