Welcome to our gallery featuring the elegant modern Knightsbridge project, a home designed by Taylor Howes Designs.
This 2,000 square foot apartment, in the heart of Knightsbridge, was designed for a property developer. The brief specified a mixture of classic contemporary styles, with Taylor Howes carrying a large portion of the build itself.
For this intensive project, the interior space was completely reconfigured, with the bathrooms being totally remodeled.
The joinery seen throughout the apartment was designed to appear bespoke and elegant, including a dark timber feature wall. Another striking detail are the sliding Japanese-style shoji paneled doors, dividing the study and the dining area.
The open plan and shoji doors allow for a highly interactive space, incorporating the study into the main reception area or completely closing it off as a discrete room.
Certain key features of the home include a fireplace in the main reception space with bronze detailing, a massive mirrored wall that visually expands the space, and another mirrored feature behind the bed in the primary bedroom. The mirrors add not only space but a sense of glamour.
Exquisite Carrera marble is seen within both the primary bathroom and the kitchen, adding a rich sense of weight and texture. The primary bathroom also houses a halo lit mirror for both visual appeal and high functionality. The bathroom also features polished Statuario marble above the bath, contrasting with stained timber joinery.
The designers were asked to include a complete furnishing package, dressing the property for prospective buyers. A number of beautifully bespoke pieces were commissioned, including the console int he dining area, the large framed wall mirror with floating shelf, and the striking mahogany headboard in the primary bedroom.
The restrained but potent luxury of this home has us feeling more than impressed. We hope you enjoy the gallery as well!
This free standing mirror wall both obscures and expands the visual space in the social area of the home. Framed in a deep black, with decorative elements on a dark dresser in front, it’s an essential component of the design.
The living room enjoys a smorgasbord or intriguing elements throughout its sleek wood panel enclosed space. Artwork on the walls complements a large slab-like coffee table, while a built-in floating desk design meshes perfectly with the neutral walls.
Divided from the living area by sliding shoji doors, the dining room is backed by a dark timber feature wall at center. A side table with matching wood tone stands in front, topped by an elegantly framed mirror.
Those sleek natural wood wall panels allow for innovative features, like this seamlessly mounted television. An elegant button-tufted leather armchair stands beside, adding a splash of traditional contrast.
The kitchen is bright and glossy, with sleek hardware-free cabinetry and a bold marble island at center. The intricate below-cupboard lighting helps highlight the exquisite countertops.
Moving down the main hallway from the open-plan central space, we see the expansive white flooring lit via subtle low wall lights, with the entire neutral space lined with black-framed artwork.
In the primary bedroom, we see the exquisite polished mahogany headboard, spiked with mother of pearl inlay. The backing mirror wall expands the space visually while adding a sparkling glimmer to the look.
The bedroom en suite includes this large makeup desk, with a skirted ottoman for seating. Artwork in the bedroom is mirror-framed, flanking a large window below recessed lighting in the ceiling.
Here’s more of that rich Carrera marble, flush throughout the bathroom from the walls to the bath surround. Dark wood cupboards below the vanity add a splash of contrast.
The second bedroom is wrapped in a more neutral dark beige tone, accentuating the traditional elegance of the carved wood armchair and button tufted headboard.
This bathroom boasts a darker color palette, with deep marble tones and dark stained wood cabinetry. The soaking tub, countertop, and even wall are flush with the rich marble, making for a luxurious appointment.
A third bedroom features a more bright and playful tone, shot through with bursts of lavender. This subtle splash of color makes for a distinctly lighter tone than the rest of the home.
