Open-plan living spaces and a contemporary colour palette bring an inviting synergy to this two-bedroom duplex apartment.
Arranged over two floors of a Kentish Town townhouse, step inside this Gaisford Street duplex and you’ll be greeted by its sense of openness. Found on the lower ground level, the open-plan living space unravels towards a glass-fronted extension and a garden beyond. Zoned into living, cooking and dining areas that flow seamlessly into one another, both form and function have been considered.
Large format grey tiles cover the floor, uniting each space and setting in motion a restrained colour palette that’s striking in its simplicity. Neutral-toned walls are contrasted with dark accents to cinematic effect, while subtle touches add definition to the interiors. In the deVOL kitchen, brass handles put a classic stamp on the contemporary cabinets. Every detail is as ergonomic as the next; deep drawers offer ample storage for cookware and are positioned in easy reach of the Belling range cooker and marble-topped island.
Natural light is in plentiful supply. Found beneath a skylight, the dining area features bi-folding doors that open onto a patio and lawn, blurring the boundaries between inside and out. Also on this level, tucked away under the stairs, is a convenient cloakroom painted in sage green.
Upstairs, the colour palette takes a more soothing turn. In the inviting family shower room, soft plaster-toned walls are combined with rustic terracotta floor tiles. There’s a pared-back feel to the immaculately presented guest bedroom, too. Blow away the cobwebs by opening the double doors to its Juliet balcony, overlooking the garden.
The principal bedroom suite is similarly calming. A row of floor-to-ceiling fitted wardrobes reduces visual clutter and keeps the space streamlined, while a large bay window adds a touch of period elegance. With its intricate fan-shaped tiles, brass finishes and double shower, the en suite bathroom elevates the everyday.
