As summer party season gathers steam, we are gearing up for the official launch of Henry Moore Court – one of our latest projects in Chelsea.
Henry Moore Court is an exclusive development which has been named after the British artist, Henry Moore. Although he is probably best known for his semi-abstract sculptures, Moore was also the head of sculpture at the Chelsea College of Art formerly located on the same site.
Along with fellow British designers, William Yeoward and Linley, we were chosen to design a three bedroom apartment with the brief to bring elegance and a refined touch to this sought-after location just off King’s Road. Our design concept was loosely inspired by my fondness of sailing in summer and so we developed a tranquil palette of watery blues and soft greens set against a backdrop of linen and textured wall coverings to create a sophisticated scheme.
The image above shows fabric swatches from an early mood board for one of the bedrooms, while the photograph below is of the end result featuring a bespoke headboard.
In addition to bespoke furnishings, we also sourced the most beautiful tables and lighting from Vaughan, a British company which is among my favourites for quality pieces. The photograph below shows the completed drawing room and dining area. With open plan spaces, the trick is to create an overall harmony while distinguishing different areas of use. In this space, harmony is created by a neutral palette and considered use of pattern and accent colour, while different floor treatments and lighting techniques give each area its own character.
