Whilst some clients want a complete overhaul of their home, there are also some who want something a little simpler in its style. Or they are looking for a refresh that still keeps elements of the home as it already is.
This particular client is a fine example of this. They came to us asking for a new look in their one bedroom apartment, yet they wanted it to include some of their existing furniture. Such as chairs, the sofa, the coffee table and the dining room table.
They created a brief for us to follow when designing their home. They wanted it to be lighter, have plenty of wow factor and also have a cosy and comfortable atmosphere. Something that we were sure that we would be able to do for them.
The living room
We started off by creating a focal point of the room, this came in the form of pendant light. Not only does it offer up a great level of light, but with its original shape, it is also a funky and fresh addition to the space.
Our attention then turned to the walls, with one main wall being covered in distressed, yet top quality brick. Distressed brick is a great material to work with. Not only is it a great way to add character to the space, but it also makes it feel and look warmer too. Just what you will want in an apartment.
Once these main points were put in place, we looked at the joinery, fighting and other textures in order to create the finished look. We knew that the right way to head was with warm, yet neutral accessories, as this would not only work with the space, but also any existing features that it already had.
We installed a warm and neutral rug, completely original acrylic paintings (created by Alicia Zimnickas from AZ Interiors) and an utterly fabulous and stylish mirror.
Our brief also covered the kitchen. We decided that this particular kitchen space would really benefit from a made to measure touch, which we arranged via a local joinery company.
Some apartment spaces really benefit from having a fluid style. Which is why we chose floor tiles that would work perfectly with the parquet floor that was originally installed into the living room, as well as the light in colour kitchen furniture.
Finally, we took a look at the bedroom. One of the most important rooms in any home. We wanted to create a contrast in this particular room, so to do this we used white, build in wardrobes alongside a navy wall colour. Not only did this create a beautiful look, but it also created the perfect flow between the bedroom and living room.
Here at AZ Interiors, we love taking on a variety of home projects. We want to make sure that our clients have the homes that they are searching for, a warm, stylish and inviting place, that they can call their own!
