Nestled in the heart of Belgravia is Boscobel Place. A unique offering to the area, the set of mews houses were originally Belgravia stables giving them a contrasting design to much of the area which was largely built to the vision of Thomas Cubitt. The prevalent builder who is hailed as transforming the face of London, was inspired by Italian architecture and his grand, white stucco houses still stand proudly throughout many of the capital’s streets, particularly Bloomsbury, Pimlico and Belgravia. The mews houses of Boscobel Place however belong to an older, more dated style of design with small, dark rooms and it is one of these houses that top interior design practice Accouter Design were tasked with transforming for their most recent project. The LuxPad takes a look at the beautiful Mews House interior…
Inspired by bringing the outside in, the foundation of the entire project was to open the previously small and dark rooms to create a haven for the home’s residents. A sense of nature was implemented through the organic color palette combined with original design features and foliage throughout. The secret garden is the hidden gem of the Mews House interior. Located within the master suite, it is an exquisite sanctuary with a retractable roof to be enjoyed in any weather. Designer Mia Kitsinis has spoken about the secret courtyard:‘There are few, if any places in Belgravia that can claim to have their own secret garden – a perfect place to escape the hustle of the city. A coveted spot for leisurely book reading and intimate summer soirees.’
Minimalistic and modish, the garden has been accessorized with a comfortable herringbone corner sofa with complementary occasional chairs, perfect for enjoying your morning tea or coffee at. Parallel oak beams run across the space to accommodate foliage with graceful tendrils of wisteria visible in the imagery, with two brass box pendant lights providing a contemporary juxtaposition for the delicate flora.
Great consideration was taken by Accouter Design in future proofing the Mews House interior and will include a study along with two other bedrooms in addition to the master suite. The study has been created to be easily transformed into an additional bedroom should the owners require more space further down the line. Accouter Design have ensured this by providing electrics with a bedroom configuration in mind and a privacy wall between the bathroom and reception.
The overall design of the Mews House interior is characterized by the use of plush textiles which complement the marble seen throughout the property and the emerald green tones used in the color scheme. The reception area sets the tone for the rest of the home with an expansive fireplace crafted from fine Italian marble framed by two rock crystal wall sconces to add further luxury to the space. The kitchen and dining area has been transformed into the heart of the home with plenty of space to cook, dine and entertain. As with the rest of the Mews House interior design, a fresh tonal palette has been utilized in the kitchen joinery with a vivid pop of color from the emerald velvet banquette creating a focal point for the room.
Also on this level is a full sized garage, giving this property an edge not only in Belgravia but the rest of the capital too. Exuding chic glamour at every turn, Accouter Design have answered the needs and desires of the Belgravia demographic, giving potential buyers the option to use the Mews House as both a family home or a London pied-a-terre. Mews House is being artfully transformed by Accouter Design for Kapital Estates and you can track the process of this luxurious new property via the developer’s website.
