A Georgian apartment interior design project

We work with some truly talented interior designers here at Go Modern and we were incredibly impressed with a recent design project that we thought we’d share with you.

Furnish Interior Design is based in the heart of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.  They’re a fun, very creative bunch and passionate about what they do. Their brief was for a beautiful Georgian apartment in Cheltenham, and in the following pictures you can see the open-plan space they worked on using a number of different pieces, including some from the Go Modern collection – the Lars sofa and Nikos armchair from Bonaldo, and the New York Suite sofa from Saba Italia.

Furnish Interior Design’s clients requested a scheme that would be both luxurious, rich and calming but introduce edginess to contrast. Director Daniel Cook from Furnish described the project to us. Read on to see how it was achieved…

“The scheme was a delight for Furnish to work on; we were overwhelmed with the apartment’s Georgian architecture. The tall ceilings, room proportions and original features such as the fireplace and decorative hand-crafted coving contribute to the strong character of this apartment. They were all elements that we of course wanted to celebrate and consider within the design.

“Our clients had a desire for us to create a space that had a subtle connection between each room whilst maintaining intrigue and a sense of individuality. The colour palette of the reception sets the scene for the rest of the apartment where the punches of colour and geometric shapes can be seen throughout.

“Earthy grey tones for the walls were inspired by those that exist in the marble fireplace. The neutral walls and organic nature of the sisal carpet helped to set the calming backdrop. Juxtaposing this, bursts of blues, mustard yellows and magenta showcase as signature colours in the sofa, rug, cushions and accessories throughout.

“The amazing Saba New York sofa sitting in front of the black sculptural character of the Tom Faulkner furniture in the dining area adds the perfect injection of beautiful mustard yellow. The artwork by Miranda Carter was commissioned especially to subtly pick up on these yellow tones and add gentle blues, reflected in the cushions by Jessica Zoob.  A huge bespoke antique mirror rests on the fireplace allowing the details of the ceiling and large-scale gliding pendant light to be bounced back into the room.

“It was an especially tricky project for Furnish as our clients are based in Bermuda. Therefore, most communication, design presentation and development had to be achieved via Skype calls and emails. Through the use of intricate and detailed mood boards, material sample boards, technical plans and drawings we were able to clearly determine, communicate and successfully achieve the look and feel for our clients perfect space.”
