KITCHEN

The on-trend blue kitchen opens out to a stylish outdoor terrace via chic Crittall-style doors. A marble splash back behind the hob complements the marble-topped kitchen island, while the industrial-inspired brass kitchen taps add to an overall cool, on-trend look. The kitchen island pendants are kept simple, sculptural and white.

LIVING ROOM

In the living room, painted lights from IKEA act as downlighters, illuminating the bookshelves that frame the TV. The corner sofa creates a cosy nook, while a throw was framed and mounted on the wall to create a striking focal point.

The exposed brick wall was painted in several coats of white to create a sense of calm, while keeping the brick’s textural appearance. A small curation of artworks on the left are aranged in gallery wall format, but are spread out to avoid the wall looking cluttered.
