Luxury Hans Crescent home inspired by ‘Fendi Casa’
London-based husband and wife duo Aaron and Laura Hammett have designed the Hans Crescent project. Completed in 2014, the luxury two-bedroom apartment is located directly next to London department store Harrods in Knightsbridge.
This interior design project was a full refurbishment of a two-bedroom lateral apartment, including all architectural details, kitchen and two bathrooms. The property boasts a number of pieces of bespoke furniture design.
The clients’ brief was that the property should evoke the feeling of a “Fendi Casa”, but not too dark and heavy. Marble flooring was required throughout the luxury London home, including the bedrooms.
The colours had to compliment the marble floor and add warmth. The hallway could be very dark and dramatic as it has no practical use but the living room and bedrooms needed to feel light and fresh, while maintaining the clients request for a rich pallet.
Materials used in the interior design included Bianco Carerra marble flooring was used throughout the hallways with a peitra grey marble boarder. An Eglomise wall with a 12 carrat white gold backed bronze mirror and bronze silk wallpaper adorn the walls. Dark greyed oak internal doors with art deco polished chrome door handles finish the hallway.
The stylish kitchen boasts high gloss dark greyed oak with Peitra Grey marble worktops. The overall effect is chic and contemporary.
The main feature is the headboard wall with integrated LED lighting. Additionally there are open wardrobes and a dressing area using a specialist veneer with Cracked Gesso inlay in the drawer fronts (from Waterguilders) framed with a polised nickel boarder.
Tom Kirk chandeliers and wall lights in the living and dining room bring a touch of style and glamour to this chic London home.
Statuario marble has been used in the bathroom along with dark greyed oak cabinetry. Accents include Dornbracht brassware and Vola heated towel rails.
Laura Hammett, director and co-founder of Laura Hammett Ltd, said: “The original design was very elaborate and decorative so we stripped it back and used simple art deco architectural features to give it a much more modern feel.”
