Fresh and Vibrant Home in London with Innovative Storage Solutions

Fresh and Vibrant Home in London with Innovative Storage Solutions

Kia Sunda from Kia Designs has recently sent us a lovely design project which we are happy to share. Here is the description we received: “This home is based in Highbury, North London, relatively close to the new Arsenal stadium.  Although the clients gave us almost complete artistic control they also provided us with numerous specifications that needed to be fulfilled.  It was of paramount importance that the ‘living room’ be spacious as the owners often use the room for yoga.  In order to make the most of the available space in the room we designed beautiful bespoke shelving as well as a seating area by the window which also acted as a storage system for yoga mats!

The clients also specified that the room should have more of a ‘winter’ feel to it: in order to achieve the necessary warmth we chose a attention commanding blue which we felt was soothing and fresh, as well as inviting. The bedroom also required bespoke storage in order to house a number of items that would otherwise clutter the room.  Many of the panels behind the bed are actually storage compartments and even the platform upon which the bed sits houses deep drawers.  This project was made possible through the use of clever storage: although bespoke furniture is expensive it allows one to make the most of their precious London space and can make for a clean and stunning finished article.” (Photography of bedroom: Charlie Sunda (Artistic Director, Kia Designs, Photography of living room:  Sylwester Przybylski).

    Hi Vic, The colour is Dulux Heritage DH Oxford Blue. It’s a great colour but make sure you try a sample pot first! Kia

    Hi Harry,

    I actually designed them myself. If you are looking for something similar The Rug Company in Notting Hill can do bespoke designs, also http://www.orientalruggallery.com/ can do them too – Julian is wonderful to brainstorm ideas with! Hope that helps!
