Increasingly in blocks like 1 Tapestry Canal Reach, we are being asked to dress and furnish new build properties to give them a unique and interesting interior design that makes them stand out against the other new build properties. With foreign buyers purchasing a large proportion of London new build properties and spending very limited time in the UK, 1.61 London ensures that these properties are designed and furnished to the top specification, limiting the need for the client to fly to the UK. The service we offer is a full turnkey solution. We will completely dress and furnish the property, including items such as cutlery, artwork and bedding so that it really is a turn key solution. We offer elevation design, renders and finishes to be sent directly to the client so they can have as much influence as needed on the project.
The Interior Design we are carrying at 1 Tapestry Canal Reach has been a very interesting project. We have taken off the standard builder skirting and added much more luxurious profiles. We have also rendered both the reception room and Master bedroom giving the client a full understanding of the design we are carrying out. With only 3 weeks to complete the project, we ensured that all our choices were made either bespoke or were on a quick turnaround so that the client’s target move in date was met. We have implemented all the furniture, curtains, headboards, wallpaper, cushions and soft furnishing and build work to create new design elevations at 1 Tapestry, Kings Cross. We are being asked more and more to take on projects of this kind. We carried out works in Nine Elms last year on 3 properties with a similar goal: Kitting out and dressing new build flats in new build blocks. With so many new build blocks like Riverlight, Nine Elms SW8 and some of the Barratt homes projects like Chapter Street SW1, Aldgate Place and Berkeley homes projects like Kidbrooke Village Sw3, it looks like 1.61 London will be carrying out more turn key interior design service solutions. It really is an exciting time and challenge to turn these new build shells into someone’s personalised home. 1.61 London is ready to take on the task
Colourful bathrooms are on trend – but what do interior design experts think?
Colourful bathrooms – and in particularly, sanitary-ware, is set to be one of the biggest and most controversial of bathroom trends, as a growing number of homeowners inject elements of the kaleidoscopic 80s into their bathrooms.
New cladding-style fire crisis could be lurking inside Britain’s homes
The 2017 Grenfell disaster lifted the lid on decades-long hidden problems of fire safety in housebuilding. But in the wake of the scandal, interior designers argue that their sector has so far been largely overlooked.
