It’s all maths, but thankfully not as you know it. This re-worked apartment, on the top floor of what was once a schoolhouse, was an exercise in balancing the shapes of contemporary furniture within a historical frame. So get ready for a union of Art Deco and Moorish style in the bathrooms, and mid-century design alongside modern lighting. The result? A beautiful home with artistic influences against a delicious backdrop. Full marks.
THE NEW SCANDI
Give Nordic vibes a twist with a dark and moody palette. Sharp shapes create a modern spin to the aesthetic – so think delicately angled coffee tables and sleek chairs with a classic design. Throw in a mix of textured throws and washed linen in cool greys and you’ve got a contemporary look that’s completely of the moment.
Forget playing it safe with white – it’s time to fully embrace your fifth wall. Whether you go for wood panels which can match any colour scheme with minimum effort, or tin tiles that give a vintage vibe, we’ve got striking ways to take your decorating ideas sky high!
