Interior Design for a Pied-á-terre in Nine Elms

Interior Design for a Pied-á-terre in Nine Elms

The Brief

Nine
Elms is quickly becoming a prime central London location and it is
clearly set to blossom as a new residential business district. It is
located within walking distance to the Houses of Parliament, Sloane
Square, Tate Britain, Battersea Park and the Kia Oval cricket ground.
With the Northern Line extension set to open next year, it will take
less than 15 minutes to travel to the City and the West End. Its
location and improved transport connections are instrumental in making
Nine Elms super accessible. Let’s not forget its right beside the River
Thames for those lovely walks too.

Its location coupled with a
24-hour concierge service, health, fitness and leisure facilities made
this apartment a very attractive acquisition for Tailored Living
Interior’s client when looking to invest in a London residence.

From
the onset, we established a great connection and rapport with this
client. On brief day, it became very clear that the client loved classic
contemporary interiors. In terms of colour, their over-riding
preference was for a fresh and resting palette. They loved neutral
backgrounds accentuated by a splash of colour.

In the children
rooms, they were keen to have a degree of flexibility. The brief was to
create something that the kids could enjoy, while at the same time guest
adults would also feel at ease when they came to London with friends.

Planning Process

Our
client happened to be in London during the design stage and we were
fortunate enough to be able to meet them face to face. This, of course,
has changed of late with many of our meetings taking place virtually
on-line. It has in fact been working quite well too. It’s no longer an
issue when clients are abroad and we are working in London.

During
the planning stage, we realised that if we followed the architecture of
the room, the natural area that should be designated as the seating
space would only facilitate a small seating composition. Therefore, we
created the illusion of extending the wall with a media unit. This works
really well as this extra space facilitates additional storage. At
Tailored Living Interiors, we love creating interiors that are not just
beautiful but are also functional and practical. We believe that
Luxurious Interiors and practicality should not be mutually exclusive

How it went

The
project ran very smoothly as tends to happen when clients choose the
right interior designer. We instantly connected and were able to read
the style they were after. It’s instrumental for the success of an
interior project to understand clients’ taste and preferences at an
early stage. The brief stage was instrumental to help us pinpoint a
style to follow and ensure that the interior is tailored exactly to
their requirements.

Issues / Problems overcome During The Project

The
implementation of this project started shortly before COVID19 and as a
result, the building works were a little delayed from the agreed
schedule. We also had some minor delays in the furniture supply. This
was lucky for us as this meant we didn’t need to store the furniture
whilst the building works were being completed. Furthermore, with travel
restrictions, the client has not been able to fly to England just yet.
He is nevertheless delighted with the images and looking forward to
walking into and enjoying the space.

Client Testimonial

Tailored
Living Interiors well and truly surpassed our expectations. The final
interior is well and truly above and beyond what we were expecting.
Having previously worked with other design companies, the level of
professionalism we encountered with TL was well and truly amazing. We
were delighted to receive detailed weekly updates from London. Tailored
Living Interiors were recommended to us by our buying agent when
enquiring about an interior designer. We would not hesitate in the least
to recommend their wonderful service and amazing interiors to all our
friends and family.
