Located in an enviable positions on London’s Chel Embankment, this substantial corner house has sweeping river views, large rooms and appropriately high ceilings. A complete redesign and refurbishment was carried out by a Mun-rich-based designer for her German client, whose brief focused of total comfort and relaxation. She has achieved a synthesis between a very classic European style combined with Asian antiques and the owner’s memorabilia. The most striking aspect of the house are the enormous windows in the double-aspect living-room, which are luxuriously curtained in a cream and caramel striped fabric from Andrew Martin. This fabric was the anchor of which the colour-scheme was established.
The floors are covered in fine Persian rugs and the furniture is upholstered in a silk-and-wool fabric. Many of choice antiques were bought by the designer, including the tall gift Baroque mirror frame that leans on the study wall framing an artwork created by the designer. She also sourced the many Chinese pieces and the pair of Indian stone columns in the hail. A stay at the Hemp el Hotel in London inspired the decoration of the ivory-and-red master bedroom, a vibrant departure from the warm whites throughout the rest of the house.
