Contemporary makeover for London flat

Clean lines and a modern makeover for this bijoux London space

Following a recommendation from another satisfied Barbara Genda client, American Diana Sherer need help with the design and production of her new London flat. The scope included a full refurbishment of two bedrooms with wardrobes, bedroom furniture and headboards. The initial brief included the living room joinery and a subsequent

brief added a coat and utility closet in the hallway. The brief for this compact and bijoux apartment was to create a contemporary space with clean lines. As well as a modern finish it also needed to be practical for everyday living.

LIVING ROOM

Once Mrs Amin saw details of some of Barbara's other bespoke kitchen designs, she decided to have Barbara design a new kitchen for her house, getting rid of the cheap, high street kitchen units the house had been sold with.

MASTER BEDROOM

To bring a contemporary calm to this space graphite oak was chosen for the wardrobes, which have a high gloss finish and finger pull handles. To meet the requirement for practicality the matching dresser has nine drawers providing ample storage. An ingenious radiator cover was created with a vanity drawer and mirror for a purposeful dressing table.

GUEST BEDROOM

The guest bedroom needed to be a flexible space for a single or king bed, so a zip and link bed provided the perfect solution. A panelled wall headboard with two freestanding lights was designed, which can be moved around the linked or delinked beds to suit. A matching wardrobe in gloss-lacquered finish was also created in the chosen contemporary colour scheme of grey oak veneer.
