Step through the front door of this two-storey flat and you’re met by an extraordinarily long and wide hallway running front to back. A runner by Marcel Wanders at Moooi makes a statement, while artworks on the walls add interest.
The cooking area was moved to one end of the kitchen to make space for a family dining table. White goods, utensils and food are concealed behind a wall of dark wooden doors.
A limited-edition Ikea print sourced in Switzerland injects personality into the kitchen-diner.
The west-facing living area is bathed in sunlight in the afternoon and early evening. A long curtain in fine white fabric was made to hang along one wall, to add softness, both visually and acoustically.
The white, floor-to-ceiling drapes make an elegant backdrop in the living room. The vintage advertising poster is for a Swedish newspaper; find something like it at PopArtUK.
Muted greys and deep, soft carpet give the master bedroom a boutique hotel feel. There are no wardrobes cluttering the space (there’s a walk-in wardrobe next door). The walls are painted in slightly textured, pearlescent paint to add extra depth and warmth.
The wall-mounted television has been camouflaged by surrounding it with matching picture frames. In this way, an unsightly telly becomes a digital artwork when it’s switched on, and blends in with the rest of the decor when turned off.
A combination of simple, angled shelving and long hanging rails helps to keep this walk-in wardrobe organised. Aplaceforeverything.co.uk has a great range of storage solutions for wardrobes of all shapes and sizes so, even if your storage space isn’t as big as this one, it can still be stylish and functional.
