Show Flat

This was the first in a series of flats in a luxury development which I styled for the same client (an estate agent). It was a spacious two-bedroom flat that had a double-height open plan kitchen/dining/living area and was the main show flat for a development of 29. It had to appeal to a broad range of potential buyers, from young professionals to retired couples. To achieve this, I focused on accessory details, using luxurious textures such as velvet and faux fur and a tightly edited palette of light, earthy tones, punctuated by chocolate brown and black.

A particular challenge in the Living area were the two bare compact fluorescent lamps that were attached to extremely short flexes. They were suspended from the double-height ceiling by the kitchen island and were completely lost in space, about five metres off the floor. I overcame this by extending the flexes and adjusting the drops to different lengths. Oversized black pleated pendant shades finished them off and provided a focal point for that area. I used the same shade over the dining table, linking the two areas.
