Austen apartment at boutique hotel, Flemings Mayfair, London
London-based award-winning interior design consultancy, Suna Interior Design, have completed the full redesign of the Austen Apartment project. Completed in 2013, the luxury apartment is located at the boutique hotel, Flemings Mayfair, in, London, England.
Located adjacent to one of the eight Royal Parks in London, Green Park, boutique hotel Flemings Mayfair is elegant and exclusive. Read our review of the Flemings Mayfair here.
Suna Interior Design was commissioned to completely redesign the Austen Apartment for this elite hotel – a design that would encompass everything from the interior fittings, bathrooms and kitchens to the fabrics and soft furnishings.
The brief was to completely redesign the apartment, keeping in mind that guests will most probably be staying for longer periods of time. The design continues on from the themes of the rooms in the hotel, but is a far more elegant and classical interpretation.
The interior design scheme drew inspiration from the locality, with Green Park being a main point of reference. The colour palette of the design reflects this, with soft greens and blues and abundant references to the varied ornithological selection of wildlife that flutter among the branches of the ancient, nearby trees.
As you enter the luxury London apartment, away from the bustle of the city and sirens of the streets, step into a world of tranquillity where the birds branch over to twitter their tales and luxury tends to your every need.
The upper half of this captivating entrance hall is lined with an attractive wallpaper by Cole & Son. While the lower half of the walls are lined with a blue-grey-silver wallpaper, cleverly creating an internal/external play and reiterating the park theme.
The entrance hall is opulently furnished with a stylish silver chest, a large circular metallic mirror and an oversized lantern light. At the end of the passage, leading down from the hall is a guest cloakroom, one of the additions that resulted from the layout amends made by Suna Interior Design.
The calm and sophisticated living room radiates serenity, greeting you as you enter with a rich colour palette of green-greys and refreshing touches of white. The oversized, plush deep grey velvety sofas are accented with white piping. At the centre of each sofa sits a bespoke Flemings Mayfair cushion, further emphasising the subtle Flemings Mayfair branding. The bespoke wallpaper features a floral scene with butterflies – creating a spring theme in the room. This feature wall is reflected in the mirrored enclaves that house matching chests of drawers and stylish horn lamps. The wall paper lining the remainder of the walls in the room is a subtle teal-green. The contemporary ceiling light adds to the distinguishing and unique design in this room.
A large flat screen TV is framed and hangs above the ornate detailed white mantel piece. The remaining furniture in this room comprises a selection of dark wood and glass surfaces. Creating a sleek and stylish design effect. An oval dark wood and glass topped dining table sits at one of the windows, comfortably seating four. The coffee table, made from dark wood with a glass top, houses two ottomans in the same fabric with the same white piping finish as the sofas – maximising seating and storage space at the same time.
The master bedroom is rich and warm with a tartan green-grey with touches of teal colour palette. A velvety textured cloud wall paper lines the wall behind the bespoke deep grey with green buttons velvet punch button headboard. A linear dusty teal-green with textured subtle white lines paper covers the remainder of the walls in the room, focussing the eye towards the feature in the room: the bed.
On the designer’s instruction the bathroom wall was pushed back creating a space for the wardrobe in this room – as a result, best maximising the use of space and ensuring that there is adequate storage for longer staying guests.
The en-suite bathroom is furnished with a stylish Hans Grohe large rounded showerhead, an under-mounted Duravit Foster basin and a Crosswater Kai lever wall mounted basin tap, large format tiles and bespoke cabinetry. A sophisticated and clean design.
Continuing with the theme of nature, the second bedroom features an ornate horticultural scene of birds and butterflies frolicking on golden branches. This wallpaper is delicate and intricate comprising a palette of baby blue, green, teal and lemon yellow with gold. The large bed is headed with a bespoke button detailed tweed textured headboard.
The opulence in this room is enhanced through bespoke luxurious velvet curtains which fall from the high volume ceilings, and a contemporary glass chandelier hanging from the ceiling.
This en-suite bathroom features a large walk in shower with a large rounded Hans Grohe showerhead and Crosswater Designer hand shower kit. Built in bespoke cabinetry, wall hung WC, Crosswater Kai lever basin taps and a Duravit Scola wash basin.
Throughout the apartment the designer has paid detailed attention to the specification and finishes. The result is a stylish and practical and sleek design. The parquet style flooring in the hall is created using Amtico, a practical alternative to high maintenance wood flooring while the bedrooms and living areas have softer, carpeted areas. Both are strong, sound absorptive materials. The detail on the door knobs adds to the sense of elegance and opulence – with a beautiful ridge detail. The brushed metallic toggle light switches complete the classical contemporary design.
The sleek, stylish and modern kitchen boasts a composite polished stone worktop with appliances from Siemens. Flint coloured kitchen cabinetry with handless, soft closing doors ensure ample storage space with an integrated fridge/freezer. The large floor to ceiling window guarantees plenty of light on the light powder blue walls. This kitchen is fully equipped should you wish to host a dinner party.
This bespoke apartment reflects the unique design that Suna Interior Design created – a classical affair in a contemporary world.
