Mayfair Bachelor Pad

A bachelor pad for a young actor client who wanted to create a home which expressed his personality but also that he could grow with. We were given a fantastic brief with the request to add unexpected quirks to wow guests. Asked to reference Alice in Wonderland to highlight the client’s love of red and black shades,  we got creative and designed a very strong colour scheme.  Our approach was to make red an accent colour to break up what might have felt like a cold monochromatic scheme.

The property is arranged on two floors with the entrance on the upper floor opening onto the living area. The brief required a touch of the unusual,  starting with a delightfully quirky lobby with a ‘street scene’ setting created using a faux tree, paving stones, sky-blue ceiling and a classic exterior door with a knocker. The lower floor contained four bedrooms which we transformed into three impressively sized suites. We worked with the contractors on all elements of the project – from the lighting scheme, kitchen and bathroom designs through to bespoke joinery, decorative colour schemes and selection of all furniture.
