Highgate, London

A turnkey refurbishment project in Highgate, London which included all new fixtures, fittings and furniture through to all decorative accessories.

We completely stripped out and redesigned this substantial 4400sq ft property spread across 7 floors with five bedrooms and 3 large reception rooms in the heart of Highgate village. 

Our clients who have two young boys asked us to transform it into a contemporary home that has warmth and doesn't feel too contrived or over styled. It has to be practical for the reality of having two young boys but not be kid-centric or dumbed down in terms of design. The new design also has to enable lots of entertaining and guests to stay over.

Kitchen with open plan dining

Contemporary, highly practical, open plan kitchen and dining space with an industrial edge.

Interior design details include: a beautiful random timber plank feature wall to add interest and amazing warmth to the space; cork flooring which is warm, robust and offers acoustic properties; industrial styled lights and bespoke reclaimed wood and steel dining table with rattan and steel chairs.

Informal dining area

An informal, highly functional yet stylish dining space for a busy family who have lots of visitors and do lots of entertaining.

Hand made dining table in reclaimed wood and steel base with matching bench offers a robust solution but with character. Honey coloured rattan chairs provide great texture and match in brilliantly with this pendant light which hangs low over the table. Roller blinds behind pendants soften the look.

Kitchen, dining & family room

A great example of broken plan living. One large space is cleverly designed to create 3 different zones:

  • Full kitchen with island which is positioned to mark out the zone and enable interaction whilst cooking

  • Informal Dining which seats up to 9 in the middle of the space

  • Lounge area with low backed L-shaped sofa to break the space up and provide an area for relaxing, chatting or watching TV. Beautiful leather trunk adds to the vintage / industrial look in the space.

Kitchen feature wall

Stunning random timber planks are used as a feature wall in this contemporary kitchen with an industrial edge. Provides fantastic warmth, texture and interest to the space. Glass section sits behind the hob to protect it from cooking on the hob. Industrial pendant lights set off the industrial theme.

Family room

Contemporary family zone with a vintage / industrial theme.

Gorgeous hit of colour from these red wine coloured leather armchairs which by having open sides also provide elegance to the space. Reclaimed wood and steel TV cabinet, vintage rug and leather trunk work brilliantly together to ensure a rich, warm and interesting area to kick back and relax.

Hallway landing

Adding both interest and functionality to this landing with an industrial style bookcase and hide patchwork stool.

Lamps provide fantastic mood lighting in the evenings.

Boy's bedroom

Inspired by Arsenal Football Club, this young boy's bedroom features fun wall decals of his favourite player and quote. Easily removable at any time should it change!

Bespoke cushion on a highly practical bench for toy storage and a vintage/industrial inspired desk which is super robust in metalwork. Use of red items throughout the bedroom including bed linen, lamp, chair and curtains all reinforce Arsenal theme.

Entrance hall

Beautiful, highly practical and industrial themed entrance hall.

24 drawer chest provides a brilliant storage solution for a busy family's bits and pieces whilst making a real feature.

Different mood lighting with an industrial edge and vintage inspired accessories complete the look.

Entrance hall console table

Industrial brass table lamp adds the perfect finishing touch to this 24 drawer reclaimed wooden chest. Great mood lighting and visual interest. Scented candles in a variety of interesting holders and vases bring different textures and smells to the space.

Under stair storage

Super smart shoe storage which we designed and hand built into the under staircase space. Deliberately open fronted for quick and easy access.

Back section is on wheels and pivots to enable extra storage behind.

Games room

Part of a games room for two young boys who use this end for gaming and movies. Bespoke storage units which also house the TV screen provide a combination of closed and open storage to keep some toys and items on view and others hidden away.

Beanbag lounge chairs are perfect for reclining when watching movies or gaming or just chilling with mates.

Multi coloured rug adds texture, visual interest and adds warmth for sitting on the floor.

Games room

Centrepiece for this end of the games room are vintage Back to the Future trilogy film posters - the family's favourite movies.

Cork floor provides great acoustic properties and warmth. Table football and a table tennis table (out of shot) provide the entertainment.

A beautiful, formal dining room with vintage inspiration.

Glass medical cabinets from a Polish hospital provide a focal point as well as a stunning glass topped round table with anthracite sculptural base. Makes dining much more social being able to see everyone.

A lime green Chesterfield sofa that we had made provides a lovely seating area for before and after lunch/dinner drinks, games and relaxing.

The colour scheme was designed around these two armchairs which the client already owned.

Soft furnishings, lamps and accessories all complement this luxurious bedroom.
