An exclusive London riverside penthouse apartment in central London might be in Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Kensington, Mayfair, Holland Park, Maida Vale, Pimlico, Soho or Chelsea. Good areas for young professionals include Islington, London Docklands and Tower Bridge, and trendy areas such as Shoreditch and Camden. Luxury apartments are tastefully decorated, expertly furnished and finished with exquisite accessories.
The extensive use of glass can make an apartment look sophisticated, but if floor-to-ceiling glass panels aren’t suitable, make use of the windows you do have by framing them with swathes of quality curtains that allow as much light in as possible. Use carefully placed mirrors to increase the feeling of space, and decorate in beautiful shades of neutral colours; there are dozens of variations on white, cream, beige, sand, and oatmeal, or smoky grey and light brown if you feel an accent colour is required.
Have a marble-floored entrance hall and bespoke cabinetry to make best use of space in this area. Incorporate elements of nature in the décor of your main living area; for example, natural oak wood flooring, stone tiles, timber shelving, animal prints and Italian leather sofas and armchairs. Finish off seating areas with cushions in strong, contrasting colours in a variety of rich textiles, and a rug for the floor with colours that complement your scheme. Consider a feature fireplace and mantelpiece and some pieces of period furniture, and if this is your choice, choose accessories to complement the theme, such as wall art, paintings, mirrors, ornaments, and perhaps a chandelier.
- Choose bedroom accessories with the specification of a luxury hotel room.
- The kitchen in a luxury apartment could be minimalist. Choose high-gloss units, a granite worktop, and utilise glass and stainless steel. Add an island or breakfast bar and stools.
- For the bathroom, choose a freestanding or roll top bath or a walk-in shower and a tiled floor. Add ornate taps and a mirror, and storage so that toiletries are not on show.
- If possible, finish off with an outdoor seating area, perhaps with an outside sofa and table, a fire pit, and some potted plants.
Consider quality and environmental impact when choosing and decorating a luxury London apartment. Create a living space that oozes opulence and comfort so that it is suitable for a working professional that needs to be organised, well rested, and relaxed.
