THE CLANRICARDE GARDEN PROJECT WITH HAVWOODS
Located in a secluded cul-de-sac in the heart of Notting Hill, the Clanricarde Gardens project is a striking two-bedroom apartment that combines period charm and contemporary functionality, with stunning flooring by leading wood specialists, Havwoods.
The design brief was to renovate and modernise the property with high-quality materials, whilst enhancing the original period features, such as the high ceilings and beautiful bay windows.
Designer Furniche London has used the incredible amount of natural light to their advantage by introducing a neutral colour palette of off-whites, greys and soft earthy tones, which as a result, provides a larger sense of space.
Championing sustainable flooring solutions across their portfolio, Havwoods’ contemporary and textured Fendi 13 Prime engineered boards from the Venture Plank were chosen and used throughout the home. A key design decision was to lay the flooring diagonally across the room in order to add width and length. This technique was continued throughout, giving the sense of a much larger property. The boards are particularly appealing due to their variation of dark and light tones, which not only add a design element to the space, but also a contemporary aesthetic.
In the open-plan kitchen and living space, a mid-century modern style has been incorporated, consisting of curved accent pieces, abstract artwork, layered materials and dark-stained wood, all of which contrast beautifully against the Fendi Prime boards.
The same flooring continues on the first floor in the corridors and into the modern farmhouse-style bedrooms, showcasing how versatile and beautiful the planks truly are, no matter whether it’s a contemporary or traditional home.
With an array of flooring to perfectly complement any home, Havwoods’ varied collection combines the best of style and functionality, offering both traditional and contemporary designs in a range of colours and patterns.
