In the Autumn of 2015, we began work on our first residential project which involved the restoration of a six-storey townhouse in Kensington, London. Originally built in the 1860s, many of the period details, such as lathe and plaster walls and ornate cornice work, were in need of replacement. We had the privilege of working hand-in-hand with some of London’s finest architectural restoration companies and consultants to restore the original glamour and elegance of the decorative detailing.
Every finish from the dental-block cornices, to the bespoke basket weave mosaics and the reclaimed Versailles panelled timber floors were painstakingly analysed to ensure they felt as though they belonged to the property and felt authentic to the original fabric of the building.
We sourced furniture and lighting from antiques shops in New York and Paris, as well as Pimlico Road and Lillie Road in London. The final result of the attention to detail is an elegant and timeless, yet eclectic and vibrant home that creates the perfect backdrop to the owners extensive art collection.
