At the heart of Gabriel Square is a modern communal garden for all the residents to share; the inspiration came from the contemporary architecture of the planters and walkways and to reflect an element of the outdoors, indoors. The scheme for Gabriel Square is sophisticated, with playful touches mixed in to appeal to both families and young professionals and to honour the heritage of it’s St Albans location and the lively community who are shaping it.
In the main living area, tan leather is paired with embellished cushions and a textured rug that gives a stylish, boho feel. Warm neutrals are balanced with fresh greens and lots of plants makes a harmonious, calm place to welcome guests.
The snug room houses furniture from the exclusive John Lewis & Partners + Swoon collection. Marquetry techniques create tactile, geometric facades in dark wood with opulent brass accents and paired with deep-coloured velvet upholstery, creates a rich but cosy space to relax at the end of the day.
Upstairs, the Master bedroom has a refined feel that offers a calming space to unwind and indulge in night time routines. Combining luxurious bedding of charcoal greys, silvers and golds, with sleek marble-topped furniture and warm lighting this room is a luxurious and glamorous space taking inspiration from boutique hotels.
In the Guest bedroom the John Lewis & Partners Padma bedroom collection is a timeless choice with a parquet pattern. The natural dark colour of the acacia wood and utilitarian design strikes the perfect balance against the blush and teal colour accents in the scheme.
The top floor is designed with teenagers in mind, eye-catching, typographic artwork and the use of lively patterns makes for a fun, energising atmosphere. The study and bedroom expertly use bold yellow and turquoise shades that work with the impressive, elevated view of the Gabriel Square garden.’
