To create a showstopping and memorable two-bedroom apartment for London commuters and young professionals that takes inspiration from the local area and its history.
For over 100 years, Hayes has been steeped in musical history and was once home to the EMI Record Label. Now called The Old Vinyl Factory, it’s home to the Blue Note Apartments; a series of homes that take inspiration from the building’s past but also aim to create a completely immersive environment for potential buyers.
It was our aim to create an inspirational, colourful and daring design throughout the apartment that was brave and eye-catching, whilst still being liveable. We used a striking colour palette of purples, greens and blacks with monochrome elements; reflecting the local street art and graffiti. We combined this with a variety of modern and contemporary pieces of furniture.
We used geometric patterns throughout the property as a nod to the inspiration and in the hallway, we used a wallpaper on the ceiling to draw the eye up and to create the illusion of a bigger space. The design we chose took inspiration from the subtle lines found on a record.
The overall feel of the living room was designed to be bold and bright and we were selective with our layout to ensure there was plenty of space; something first time buyers are always keen to see. Soft curves and bold colours continue into the dining area and further into the bedrooms.
