The grown-up bachelor pad
An urban-chic look for a classic Soho loft apartment
From street level, you’d never guess that this apartment was even possible. It opens up like The Doctor’s TARDIS, revealing vertiginously high ceilings and vast windows that stare, unblinking, at the jumbled rooftops of Soho.
It’s a real estate rarity, but one that needed much love. Street cred could only take it so far. The bachelor pad needed to mature and exchange utility for a little artistry and refinement.
For maximum impact, we paired an original Damien Hirst with a vintage Soho sign, shagreen leather desk, classic wishbone chair, berry red sofa and geometrically patterned cushions.
While these are standout pieces, they work in concert with each other, calmly and confidently.
No monkey business
Pale oak floors, ivory and blue-grey walls, quietly stylish furniture – these elements provide a subtle backdrop for statement art. And nothing was going to upstage the chimp.
Card Room Green walls breathe a hushed warmth into our principal bedroom. While the large, padded bed, plump velvet cushions and soft mohair throw appeal to the hyper-nester in all of us.
Near the apex of the double-height ceiling sits a sleek writing desk with a framed photo of Soho George. He’s a legendary local, famed for his signature check suit, fedora and bowling shoes. He looks right at home in this stylish spot.
