Apartment in England
My husband and I decided to explore features layouts of apartments and houses in different countries. And at the same time to create the design for it. And the first country that we have chosen is England. Typical apartment (townhouse) in the English residential area has its own entrance from the street, has two floors and rear patio. The facades are designed strictly in the same style,the interior of the apartment may look as tenants will want. Often from the entrance you get into the kitchen and then into the living room. On the second floor traditionally there are the bedrooms and nursery. About the English style in the interior I will write a separate post.
In this project I used vintage pieces from different epochs, as well as my favorite brands such as Anthropologie, Westelm, Kare design, Arteriorshome. The hallway we visually separated from the dining area by a translucent partition.
The facade of the kitchen is made of steel, the floor is of marble. (2). The dining area is reminiscent of the marine mood with dining chairs in the ship’s helm shape (7) and carpet in blue stripes. (6).
Living room has turned out light, little silver, more with a French mood. One of the walls with wooden panels. This is one of the peculiarities of the English interior. TV Rack – in my sketch. Behind the elegant sofa (5) is a French screen 19th century (3). The chandelier in the Empire style (2), has most decorative role.
The bedroom is light, with peach and blue accents. The room is small so here is a high canopy bed in the form of tree branches. It makes the room visually bigger. One of the walls is painted with geometric pattern imitating wallpaper from the Belgian company Bekaert (3). The advantage of the walls painting allows to choose the any size and color of the pattern. Bright Moroccan tables (4) in the role of bedside tables in color with the wall art decor (1). The closet in my sketch with finishes of natural wood.
The kids room was created for the two boys. The key tones are light with red accents. Here is a bunk bed and a work area with a pair of vintage chairs 50-ies (7). Small sofa with ears (6) in the English style and table with wheels (5). The funny ceiling chandeliers reminiscent of baseball ball in the basket (3). Wallpaper with a pattern of silver stars (2). And windows Roman shades trimmed with red tassels (4).
