Luxury apartment in Marylebone Village, London
London-based interior architecture and design studio Laura Hammett has designed the Devonshire Place project. Completed in 2015, the two-bedroom apartment is nestled in the heart of Marylebone village, London, England.
Situated in a Grade II listed, six-storey stucco and brick front Georgian townhouse, this unique home showcases the perfect combination of classic and contemporary design.
Spanning 2,200 sq. ft. and located a short distance from the shops and restaurants of bustling Marylebone High Street, the clients desired their home to be a modern sanctuary.
Laura Hammett, co-owner of Laura Hammett Ltd, said: “As this apartment was situated on the lower ground floor it was key to create a streamlined open-plan feel. In reference to the property’s Georgian heritage we incorporated black steel into the simple designs used for the doors and banister, a material which would have been utilised in the home originally. These period features were thoughtfully balanced with the furnishings and finishes to create a contemporary home.”
Champagne and cream tones were used throughout the living room, providing a neutral canvas to display the client’s Tibetan art collection. The art is complemented by the deep tones of the inbuilt joinery with chocolate stained oak and a large bespoke eglomise and bronze coffee table at the centre of the room.
The luxury London home also features incredible entertaining spaces at the request of the client who enjoys hosting lavish gatherings. This was achieved by opening up the large kitchen and dining area with a white central island which incorporates a hob and minimalist Laura Hammett bespoke bar stools.
The outdoor courtyard located centrally to the home, with direct access from the living room, master suite and guest bedroom, cleverly transcends the inside to the outside with mature bonsai trees and a chiselled slate fireplace flanked by benches decorated with elegant Holly Hunt fabrics.
The master bedroom suite showcases a feminine palette of pearly whites and greys. This colour scheme flows seamlessly into his-and-hers dressing rooms which feature pearlescent veneer, mirrored and silk wall lights. The bespoke glass fronted shoe cupboard also includes strip lighting to ensure the client’s extensive shoe collection is clearly on display.
