Westbourne Gardens, W2
This Notting Hill apartment demonstrated just how effective simple yet meticulous design features – space, light, clean lines and function – can be when paired together. These assets form an integral part of Scandinavian design, something the owner wanted to achieve from day one, and something he has produced with beautiful effect.
Purchased in 2014, the owner undertook a complete renovation that involved opening up the third-floor kitchen, dining room and lounge, and adding a contemporary banquette to provide a dining space and social hub. Inspired by mid-century and contemporary Scandinavian style, the owner opted for a neutral palette of white, black and wood tones.
The bespoke kitchen was manufactured by Pronorm. Sleek in style and intelligent in design, the space included top of-the-range appliances and Silestone quartz work surfaces.
Upstairs, the owner changed the bedroom configurations to provide two generous sleeping spaces, both with en-suite bathrooms and their own private balconies. Brilliantly light and bright, the property’s contemporary feel shines through the white-washed oak flooring, fully integrated Sonos music system and various retro furniture pieces curated by Augustus Reaves.
The owner says: “The property stood out for me because of its location, proximity to the centre of Notting Hill and the appeal of the street itself: a beautiful, quiet, tree-lined street with some of the most impressive architecture in London. The flat also offered an abundance of natural
light that I couldn’t turn down.”
