One Kensington Gardens, Kensington
Located in Kensington’s exclusive One Kensington Gardens development, the brief for this lateral penthouse was to design a luxury contemporary apartment that reflects the lifestyles of potential purchasers. A sophisticated entertaining space, the apartment combines neutral tones with bold, striking accessories that complement the David Chipperfield designed architecture.
The apartment provides an elegant showcase that provides potential residents with the ability to see how they can adapt the existing apartments to suit their personal needs through the addition of unique furniture, bespoke joinery, and eye-catching artwork.
Taylor Howesdesigned this family house for an existing client who had relocated to the United States. Although finished in a stylish and sophisticated manner, the priority for their client was to create a design that was practical for a young family.
Taylor Howes benefits from excellent return business as existing clients extend their international property portfolios, with loyalty driven by the practice’s commitment to delivering not only creative excellence but a design journey that is both seamless and enjoyable.
Taylor Howes’ team of interior designers and procurement specialists deigned this Grade II listed luxury apartment in the heart of Knightsbridge. Over the last two decades, Taylor Howeshas made its name within the industry for interiors that are intelligent, elegant, dynamic, and infused with passion and creativity.
This apartment opposite Harrods, was designed as a show apartment to the client’s brief of designing a classic contemporary space with quirky accents, whilst bearing in mind that as the apartment is in Knightsbridge, luxury is key.
Clunie House, Knightsbridge
Bespoke wood paneling throughout this design, a recent penthouse completion, brings a heightened elegance and refinement to the space. Their interior design practice is talented, friendly, approachable, and absolutely committed to achieving the best design solution possible for any given project, whether private residence, show suite, hotel, spa or restaurant environment.⠀
St John’s Wood
The ultimate family experience was at the heart of this 16,000 square feet private instruction in St. Johns Wood.
Our designers worked directly with the clients and their children, to create every element of the interior design and journey of the 6-story home and separate Mews House for their live-in staff. Creative fun in the children’s areas was balanced with exquisite detailing, including a wine room crafted around an extensive fine wine collection in the formal entertaining areas. Other details included personalized engravings and an entire staircase designed around a chandelier that the client fell in love with.
Trevor Square, Knightsbridge
A combination of chic interiors and multipurpose functionality characterize this Knightsbridge home.
With three bedrooms, a kitchen, and all joinery designed by Taylor Howes and made bespoke, the house is given an atmosphere of luxury. Rich tones pop against a largely greyscale interior scheme. The overall look and feel of the residence are light and effortless, epitomized in the playful light fitting above the dining table, which emulate bubbles and inject a sense of joy into the scheme.
