Paying homage to the surrounding area and the building’s Arts & Crafts pedigree, the design for 7a Charles Street is inspired by the tailors, couturiers and fashion houses that historically have resided in the area.
Anchored in celebrating British Craftsmanship and design, with a further nod to the building’s heritage, we took the opportunity to feature a whole host of British design brands. From Chesneys fireplaces and Samuel Heath bathrooms to Bert Frank lighting and Havwoods flooring – to name a few.
There’s a noticeable transition from formal to relaxed living throughout the property. The historic nature of the exterior is celebrated in the height and imposing nature of the study, living and dining rooms, but there’s an easiness and femininity to the design of the bedrooms and lower-level spaces that make it instantly calming. Crittall-style doors and windows complete the central atrium and partition the upstairs spaces, reinforcing the feeling of the grand hosting rooms of the past, whilst introducing modern and crisp sentiments.
Dressed with art curated by Tanya Baxter Contemporary, the walls are adorned with original works by prolific artists, including Gustav Klimt, William Scott and Adrian Heath. Above the fireplace in the central living space is a 2009 signed Damien Hirst.
