Understated opulence is, by definition, a difficult concept to achieve, but this townhouse makes it look easy. With sleek, statement-making black wooden floors, nonchalantly offset by delicate grey-painted walls, the space exudes effortless elegance. In short, the perfect setting for our new take on luxury: a grown-up aesthetic that’s as rooted in colour and texture as it is in detail.
Much like its light-meets-dark backdrop, the refined palette is all about balance. Rich charcoals are contrasted with silvery blue hues to ethereal effect, punctuated by mirrored accents alongside pops of brass and gold, lending the look its low-key glamour. High ceilings give ample space for our tall, statement floor lamps, which balance out the townhouse’s generous proportions. In the evening, when the light from the large window dims and the blind is lowered, the lamps emanate an opulent glow, perfect for cosying up for a night in. Large mirrored artwork adds interest to the walls that would otherwise be a blank canvas.
