BRIEF: Completely renovate, furnish and decorate two bedroom property in East London.
- Remove wall separating hallway from living area to create an open plan living area
- Remove ensuite bathroom to create one large bathroom and built-in wardrobe for master bedroom.
- Expose brick on back wall in master bedroom and whitewash
- Remove partition to provide more space for kitchen area
My favourite aspect of this project was the original hardwood flooring, as you can see from the before & after, it was in pretty rough shape. We had a specialist come in and refinish the floors, but left all of the original warping and indentations. The idea was to highlight the existing architectural details, drawing warmth from the flooring and exposed brick. The furniture was chosen to maintain the open feeling of the space, with nothing anchored to the floor.
In the master bedroom we exposed the brick on the back wall and whitewashed it to maintain the clean minimal space the client wanted for his sleeping space.
The bathroom is the most dramatic change, with everything completely removed and replaced. See before and after images at DesignSponge* and Houzz
