With a unique take on design, Home Studios transformed an apartment into an expressive, elegant and detailed home ideal for a young family. The project, called Bond Street Apartment, emerges as a contemporary home with a deliberate balance of simplicity.
On every window there is a row of plants to bring more life and an extra touch of colour into the space.
This flat of about 185 square metres dates back to 1925 and was last renovated in the 1980s. Home Studios completely stripped the apartment and then reworked the open floor plan to put their own stamp on it.
A well-considered use of colour was chosen, as in all other Home Studios projects. The basic colours white, cream and wood are inspired by the 1920s and allow the other interior elements to be fully expressed. The walls within Bond Street Apartment were covered in the distinctive colour 'Pointing', a neutral and fresh colour with slightly warm undertones. This colour was named after the colour of lime mortar used in traditional brickwork. It complements the other kitchen details, such as the blue-grey kitchen cupboards and the marble countertop from Rosa Aurora, Macchia Vecchia. In addition, a row of plants was added to each window to bring more life and an extra touch of colour to the room. The natural stone wall at the end of the corridor also adds extra colour and depth to the calm and neutral palette of materials. The niche is made of Santa Caterina travertine and beautifully frames the James Hawksworth photograph. This creamy colour tone matches perfectly with the maple floor elements. In addition, the washbasin made of Arabescato Classico marble in the main bathroom compliments the ash-grey floor, black colour accents from Waterforks for the taps and green mosaic tiles.
This renovation is proof of the solid cooperation and vision between Home Studios and the clients, who approached the design studio after falling in love with its remarkable previous projects. The end result is a direct reflection of Home Studios' practice. Thus, Bond Street Apartment is both expressive and finely detailed with both contemporary and vintage influences united. Home Studios offers its residents a place where a collection of art and vintage is consciously distributed and which generally exudes a magnificent elegance.
