“Design is really about creating a quality of life, and beauty in that life that nourishes the soul, that makes life beautiful. That’s what all this is about, not just what’s in and what’s out.”
I admit that my instinct for spatial planning makes me the 'guest from hell'. When we designed this tiny London flat, I put my principles into practice, creating a well- ordered space. The flat is small but perfectly formed. For the client, a first-time buyer, we have transformed the space on a budget.
There is never a need to paint an entire small apartment bright white; color can add real drama to small spaces. Living in small quarters also doesn't have to mean sacrificing style for drab storage solutions and "it's the only thing that will fit" furniture.
The client works very long hours and is often away for weeks. She is not a passionate cook so the kitchen was not a big priority. For relaxation she enjoys the garden, a well designed living room for entertaining, and a comfortable bedroom for relaxing.
