For this week’s fitting, our boys found themselves in one of the most expensive areas to live in all of London, Kensington. So expensive in fact that we weren’t far from what used to be one of the most expensive streets in London. The South Kensington area is a favourite of ours here are Plantation Shutters for the Natural Science Museum and the amazing V & A Museum as well as the string of beautiful homes scattered throughout the area.
So naturally, when a resident here had an interior designer transforming their home, only the best shutters would do for their windows and this stunning conservatory. And that’s where the guys at Elephant Road Studios got in touch with us we sent them one of our highly experienced surveyors to take a look and see what we could do for them.
This conservatory is right by a lavish living room with an extra set of doors to the left that heads to the garden and with a space as large as this, their client wanted Full Height shutter panels here, something that has become more and more popular with our clients recently.
As we mentioned, the living room was perfectly constructed by designers which, of course, meant that a huge amount of detailing went into it. With this, their client wanted the colour of the shutters to synchronise with the room flawlessly. This lead to a custom colour match for the shutter’s colour. The colour in question was the stone-grey colour known as Ammonite, an incredibly popular colour in London’s interior design circles, something that we noticed on our visit to the Chelsea Harbour Design Centre last year and, as they predicted then, it looks stunning.
Along with the colour selection, their client was after a premium hardwood for the material. With the rustic look of our Pearlwood shutter material, it was the perfect choice as our very lightweight hardwood material. Both the colour and the material looked stunning together alongside the wicker furniture (and adorable mascot).
