This modest and quirky refurbishment of a compact 1 bedroom Georgian townhouse conversion, a stone throw from the fashionable Granary Square and a Coal’s Yard in Kings Cross, West London came with two main challenges: the size and the lack of natural light.
Its occupants, both in the industry well-respected chefs who are also long LGBT partners desired a distinctive yet practical temporary home that celebrated their personal love all culinary and a pop of colour interiors.
Within the precious box that separates the mature couple from the hustle and bustle of the outside world satisfies their daily rituals from an early rising start.
From the morning rush for the long and demanding day of a chef’s life, to never missing a morning double expresso from the Bialetti moca express machine while overlooking the gardens through the colour-pop joinery that sets the mood for the day. The carefully selected vintage furniture offers a clutter free start.
Solely inspired by the couple’s culinary professions and their desire to inject the exuberance into a seemingly size-wise underwhelming apartment. Into a multi-sensory and minimally furnished home with a touch of self-confidence.
Mischa’s response is a great example of her thoughtful detail in livening up smaller spaces that resulted in nothing but the infusion of warm minimalism, calmness and masculine clean lines, allowing the couple to visually break free within their new contemporary home.
Boasting with intentional touch points like the pop-of-colour tailored build-in joinery in the Kitchen, that with its clean lines geometry hugs the existing interior architecture it sits within. A quirky ‘natural drinks cooler’ or Portuguese handmade concrete print tiles to liven up the gloomy mood.
Swanky singular 2-wall curtain detail in the bedroom stripped to minimal furniture for the quietly gallery-like sense of a drama. The apartment pierced through a singular hand-woven rug artisan that introduces curves to otherwise masculine interiors.
