Kingston bachelor pad
When developing new furniture layouts I quickly realized that flipping the living room furnishing layout to better accommodate a big screen TV without it imposing on the room and provide better circulation in general. With my trusty tape measure, we stepped it out and my client agreed.
To disguise the AC Unit’s pipe I drew up a new built in pelmet which also houses motorized sheer roller blinds and lined linen curtains to control light and provide insulation. We quickly realized with all the changes that hardware and lighting would also need to be updated to fit.
The combination of moving is the AC, new windows and window treatments has resulted in a higher comfort level in the apartment.
Fully costed Furnishing plans and moodboards were presented, which included custom built wall units and comfy generous chairs. Our client generously let us do a surprise room in the guest room which meant the entire apartment was completed and ticked off with nothing left to do for at least a few years. Once furnishing were approved we set about project managing 115 furnishing items for a furniture 3 day installation. We install everything from the sheets to the wall unit.
It turns out that our client has a knack for accessorizing and we enjoyed styling in accessories with him.
