Hamptons in London? Yeah, its possible thanks to Melissa and Miller Interiors. Inspired in the Hamptons beach houses, there is a sophisticated house in central London designed by this amazing design studio. The clients have always loved the look of a Hamptons beach house, therefore, the designers used the warmth, comfort and colour often found in these homes as the main inspiration for this project. BRABBU makes a statement in the living room, with the No 20 Armchairs, a focal point of the room when someone walks into the front door.
Since it is located in central London, the designers were very mindful of the local urban environment and the need to elevate the look to match the sophistication of the clients, combining the ease and relaxed-vibe found in the Hamptons. BRABBU is present in the living room, with two No 20 Armchairs. The space is fully completed and decorated in bold colours – clementine, citron, cobalt – to act as neutral among the soothing aquas, warm whites and rich wood accents.
As told by Melissa and Miller, No 20 Armchairs were a perfect complement to the relaxed, bespoke sofas. The strength and grounding the chairs offer the room, combined with the femininity and subtlety of its open arms, provided a grandness yet an ease to the living room. Plus, the designers specifically sourced a chair with gorgeous back detail and openness, so that the pieces were flattering from any angle – particularly when coming up from the terrace outside.
The clients, along with their two children, love to have an open house for their friends and family; entertaining is at the forefront of their minds. So, the designers took the lead from them by creating an open-plan kitchen and a family room space. Even the home’s entrance is vast and open – large enough for a party, yet intimate enough for just the clients to enjoy.
For Melissa and Miller this was an exciting project – “It’s always an exciting challenge to “dig deep” in the subterranean London ground, and this project was no exception (the kitchen and office spaces are both below- ground level). And staying innovative, as it is always critical to us to steer away from repeating any looks we’ve created in the past”.
