Stockholm kitchen

We popped over to Sweden to make a compact kitchen in this funky apartment. The wall cabinet doors are designed to incorporate the handle, and the drawer fronts and base cabinet doors routed out in the same shape as the drop down 'jigsaw puzzle' pattern as the wall cabinets, then all lacquer sprayed in sage green, inspired by the success of this colour in a previous maple and sage kitchen. Multi-coloured glass tiles create the splashbacks. A PH5 lamp by Poul Henningsen for Louis Poulson hangs over the super-eliptical table  (designed by mathematician, scientist and poet Piet Hein, with some contributions from Arne Jacobsen and Bruno Mathsson, in 1968.

Some of my seascape photographs are hanging in the living room, and Stig Lindberg fabric cushions continue the owner's theme of bright and super stylish accessories.

This was a very interesting project that encopassed many different decisions and risks. The existing bathroom was pokey and pretty irredeemable, so we converted a spare bedroom into this airy and spacious family bathroom, and converted the old bathroom into a study area.

The key features to the room were the stand alone shower unit, the large square bath and the very large basin along with the simple and striking fireplace. We wanted to keep everything incredibly pure, minimal and clean, creating s space that despite the monochrome palette and straight lines is not at all harsh, but calming and meditative.

Units above the toilet provide the storage along with the vanity unit. The chimney breast 
allowed us to inject an element of texture into the room, to sit alongside the nibbled sugar cube effect tiling  in the shower. We re-plastered the chimney with the plaster sucking away at the moment it dried, leaving flat platelets behind. This was then painted and the effect is subtle but effective. Swimming pool glass
