Making A Statement With A Dark Feature Wall

Making a statement with a dark feature wall can seem like a bold step. In this room we mixed the elements of dark and light with pops of colour to keep the room modern and fresh. To see the full apartment tour look at our portfolio page. Our clients requested a ‘New York Loft’ feel to their West London home. As a busy couple they wanted to keep the room simple and clear, with minimal furniture, but a big ‘wow factor’. By using paint and being bold with colour we managed to make the room have a great deal of impact without having to increase the budget on the overall refurbishment, which included refurbishing the entire flat. We updated the existing en-suite to match with the loft style interiors which flow throughout the rest of the apartment.

How to use brick slips to create depth to your interior walls

We used white painted brick slips to the window wall and painted the rest of the room in the same neutral tone, so as not to make the room take on a dark tone. Contrasting the dark wall with a pure white bespoke linen headboard and a low bed, layered with coloured cushions and a fur throw softened the tone, whilst making the colourful artwork spring to life.

For the bedside tables we used these small marble topped side tables, not having drawers was not a problem for this couple as they were very tech savvy, using their phones and other devices rather than traditional bedside books and alarm clock.

Creating a walk-in Closet From Ikea PAX

We also managed to fit into this room a walk in his & hers closet, by building an interior wall with pocket door system. We sourced the interior of the closet from Ikea using their PAX wardrobe system in the ebony colour. Our clients were very happy with the price for this and the result, which had extensive storage and lots of open hanging space.
