Britain’s top 30 interior designers
Ever thought of getting in a professional interior designer but worried the result would be like living in a showhome? You are probably right. In the boom years, many decorators aspired to work for luxury developers, and more recently have targeted the influx of foreign investors in London’s super-prime postcodes, so the trade has gained a reputation for the type of intercontinental, manicured monochrome that these clients, who have multiple homes, love.
The English Home
Our client had a large landing area that was unused and was looking for ideas to maximise the space. We designed a study and library with built-in joinery, providing an elegant, organised solution. The reading bench incorporated into the joinery of the library fully utilises the area as well as creating a decorative space. On the opposite side we created a built-in desk, shelves and cupboards providing a lot of extra storage.
The English Home
“We often find that by creating an overall feeling of symmetry, a room then has the layers on which to build an interior scheme. We find that the instinct for symmetry can be very strong for some of our clients. Here in this living area, we have brought a strong sense of symmetry to the interior. Although there is a powerful use of pairs, they are used to create layers and depth, bringing a clear sense of rhythm and continuity. A few asymmetrical touches keep it looking natural.”
The Atlantic look is contemporary, luxurious and elegant, but driven by their clients’ requirements and tailored to their needs. They are used to large building refurbishments and detailing every aspect of the property.
