Bachelor Pad Flat
Our team thrive on the challenge of transforming a blank canvas into a home that abounds with style and personality. A recent project involved the design and styling of both the living and bedroom spaces for a contemporary ground floor apartment situated in the heart of one of Cheshire’s most sought after conurbations.
Recently purchased as the first residence for a young man about town, we were commissioned to deliver a home which reflects his stage in life as well as offering the perfect space for entertaining.
The primary requirement was to cultivate a contemporary and youthful feel throughout the apartment. The scheme was to offer a distinctly masculine overtone with a focus on relaxation as well as delivering social spaces which lend themselves to entertaining guests.
Ultimately our client desired a luxurious home crafted with a subtle hue of glamour.
Details & Specific Points of Interest
The apartment is situated on the ground floor of a new build contemporary complex. It was built for broad appeal, with neutral tones used throughout, wooden floors in the living areas and carpets in the bedrooms. However, the space was lacking in standout features and a sense of individuality. This is where our creativity came to bear with the team executing a scheme which delivered both style and character.
The main open plan living space is accessed via a rather narrow, long hallway. We dressed the walls in a silver champagne silk effect wallpaper which serves to build a sense of heightened anticipation for the rooms beyond.
Simple yet impactful changes
The kitchen, living and dining area is designed as one seamless sociable space. Our team chose to underpin the scheme with neutral tones. Accessories and soft furnishings in accents of royal blue add a depth and sophistication to the scheme. This feeling is further reinforced with cabinetry and furniture crafted in a luxurious dark wood complemented with detailing in warm antiqued brass tones.
Within the over-riding design theme one challenge was to allow for separate zonal areas whilst ensuring they blended flawlessly together as a whole.
In the kitchen deceptively simple changes dramatically altered the mood of the space and how it can be used. A goalpost detailing in a solid wood finish was affixed to the centre island and, with the addition of sleek contemporary bar stools, this transformed it into a sociable casual dining area. Using stunning mirrored bronze splashback to replace the pre-existing plain lacquered one has successfully elevated the feel in the space to that of sophistiacted luxury. The look is completed with curtains and linds that frame the large windows. Crafted from an opulent fabric in vibrant shades of blue as well as beautiful intertwining shades of silvery grey.
Turning our attention to the master bedroom we opted for opulent finishes and rich fabrics to create an indulgent and somewhat decadent feel. The main feature in the room is a bespoke headboard designed with a distinctly masculine feel, the central panels sit within a dark wood frame and are upholstered in a sumptuous navy velvet which is replicated on the bed base. Flanked by antiqued bronze mirrored panels featuring inset retro style glass and nickel wall lights, to create the ultimate centre piece for the room.
Atmospheric textured wallpaper in a rich shade of gold adds to the sense of lavish drama, whilst bedside tables and a chest of drawers in a black ash veneer with polished brass details underpin the masculine tone to the room. The bed is dressed with scatter cushions in navy and gold contrasting fabrics and full length royal blue curtain frame the windows. The scheme is completed with the addition of a feature pendant chandelier in textured glass with a gold band surround.
The guest bedroom is designed to create a boutique hotel style experience. A neutral colour palette is employed with wallpaper in a light grey complemented by floor to ceiling curtains in a bronze tone with a stylish geometric pattern. Pride of place sits the bespoke headboard which features an ebonised timber frame and with beige velvet upholstery styled in a large format geometric herringbone design.
This contemporary two bedroom apartment was a thoroughly enjoyable project to work on. Whilst designed with functionality and budget in mind it also delivers a stylish home with quality finishes and exceptional attention to detail.
Our team delighted in creating a tranquil and sophisticated yet playful space which will mature as our client transitions through life.
