TRIBAL INFLUENCES

This 1,800 ft2 three-bedroom apartment kicked off the interior design based on the love of two fabrics with an African print. The result is a fun yet sophisticated décor with an ethnic vibe. Subtle references to the original textiles have been carried throughout the space to give cohesion to the interesting and unexpected colour palette.

This apartment and Studio L were both recently shortlisted by the International Design and Architecture awards for "Best Living Space" and "Best Bathroom".  Stiff + Trevillion were the architects and Alchemi Group were the development managers on this project.

 The upholstery from Dedar and curtains and wallpaper from Pierre Frey were fallen in love with because of the sophisticated African feel of each pattern. Studio L was to make it all work together in a distinctive way without being too referential.

 The kitchen was semi-customised by adding brass handles and a bespoke veneer to blend seamlessly with the flooring. The upper cabinets were sandblasted glass painted in a RAL colour. The backsplash tiles went through many prototypes before getting the iridescent petrol cast just right!

 The walls in the master bedroom were wrapped in a felt textile for a cosseted effect. Studio L designed the bed in oxblood red leather with wood riveting detail running down the sides. The curtains reminded Laura of a Kuba cloth print used in an elevated fabric. The master bathroom’s Moroccan zellige tiles are incorporated as a feature seen through the glass of the double doors.
