Some apartments were designed to inject a feeling of modern lifestyle combined with the luxury of living in a bright, open space. This Top Floor Apartment in one of London’s central districts – Kensington – occupies 1,285 square feet. Two cozy yet stylish bedrooms, one with a master suite, the other with a separate shower room, designed to use the available space at the maximum, welcome the owner whenever in need for some relaxation or a good night’s sleep. With a double height vaulted reception room, the apartment is always ready for entertaining. The mezzanine level can be reached via the black staircase in the middle of the downstairs living space/ cooking area. Here, day beds invite people to enjoy some quiet moments and a secluded roof terrace ensures easy access to fresh air and views of the surroundings. The top floor location of this apartment allows beautiful views of St. Mary’s Church and Kensington Gardens is just a short walk away. Offered at £1.795 million, the apartment is worth seeing only to get inspired by the beautiful interior design.
There are a few specific styles and themes which come alive in the bedroom with the addition of a green tinge. The first that comes to mind is here is the exotic tropical style. Whether you wish to combine a hint of tropical charm with modern aesthetics or want to create a guest bedroom that is full of tropical flair, green is the color to turn to. A splash of bright or mossy green can turn your boring bedroom into a fun and playful space that reminds of your recent holiday trip to a stunning tropical getaway. Another look that revels in green is the beach style and you can replace the traditional white and blue blend with white, green and a hint of orange to create a unique and exquisite bedroom.
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
