  • An Artful Interior by Sarah Habib

    Where Contemporary Design Meets the Classful Essence

    The Art House by Sarah Habib is an elegant project that puts together contemporary design with classical art forms and structures. The interior designer together and 3D Artist worked together with Zan Architects and created luxurious project with an artistic touch.

    Every single room of the interior is a beautiful example of real estate architecture, that mixes classical lines with boldness from the colour pallet. The mix of natural shades such as the walls’ green and the woody floor, together with the black & white pieces and the metal surfaces, make a perfect balance,

    Entering the dining room, it is visible the matching of luxurious furniture and masterful artwork, as an imponent classical sculpture takes the centre stage, together with Boca do Lobo’s beautiful Pietra Oval Dining Table. This amazing design piece adds depth to the space, where its marble surfaces contrast with the darker walls. Surrounding the imponent dining table, the Nº11 Chair, which takes the cue from key figures of the surrealist movement, brings this art trend into a scenario dominated by classical lines.

    In the stunning living room, following the concept of the whole interior, there’s a gorgeous juxtaposition between contemporary design and the classful essence. Being the central space of the project, the designer needed a focus statement piece as the Navarra Centre Table by Boca do Lobo. This design piece creates the perfect mood when illuminated by the Gala Suspension by Luxxu.

    It is impossible to assign it to any one specific style as it contains everything from art deco to urban style.

    We experimented with colours playing with the dark floor in combination with a yellow sofa and a bright painting on the ground floor. We created a very unusual staircase with an amazing chandelier and designer banisters which can be classed as the centrepiece of this house. Our designers expressed themselves in various ways, especially with the use of dark coloured metals which were used as a base for this project. The first floor features a burgundy/cherry coloured flooring leading to the granddaughter’s room which is designed in green colours.

    Next to it is the youngest son’s room which looks like a separate loft style apartment with concrete panels on the walls, an amazing photo of New Yok city and industrial wall lights made to exclusive designer drawings. Then there is a master bedroom where her dressing room and bathroom are silver and white with elements of blue and his dressing room and bathroom are brown and beige and resembles in style small houses along the seaside.

    Living area
    Every space is thoughtfully designed to every last detail and reflects the idea at the heart of the project that the bedrooms are not just different rooms but also reflect the personality, interests and tastes of each family member. All this may give the impression of total incompatibility but it is not the case as these completely different spaces together create one atmosphere united by specific elements.

    Client & Brief
    The clients are a large family who wanted to create a home that would be their main place of residence. The client’s most important request was to create comfortable spaces suitable for the whole family to spend time together. The other requirements were the sports area, spa and wine cellar.

    Design tricks
    This can be identified as the main design technique – all the spaces are created with different moods, colours and styles but they all seamlessly join together. Dark metal is the main decorative element. It is used throughout the whole project and is the main feature.

    Wine Cellar
    Confirming with the owner’s preference to not build a basement in the house we organised a space on the ground level next to the kitchen. The interiors are divided with a transparent floor made of tempered glass. The textured blued metal on the stairs highlights the graphic black floor and walls. The lack of direct light in the space creates a magical atmosphere of an ancient wine cellar. We were very attentive to the temperature and humidity controls as one of the most critical considerations in every wine-cellar design.

    Spa & Sport area
    The second floor comprises the spa and a gym that features a large sports equipment area as well as table tennis and yoga spaces. Despite its separateness, it also had to be integrated with the house therefore we decided to finish it in Swiss-style. We designed a bespoke hydro massage bath, hammam, spa zone and recreational area. All the spaces are quite cosy and family friendly.

  • Seer Green, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, a New England style inspired house design by Carla Designs

    We were looking for houses that would serve us for the next 3-4 years and when I saw this one I immediately fell in love with the exterior and could see it had huge potential.

    It was cute and importantly close to the train station into Central London and I just knew that I could turn it into a beautiful home given half the chance. So needless to say I managed to persuade my husband that this was the right house for us and after securing it I then had the huge task on my hands to prove I was right and turn it from the ugly duckling on the street to the beautiful swan.
