Historic Chelsea Townhouse
Built in 1714 for the Duchess of Hamilton, Mark was appointed to undertake a complete redesign and refurbishment of this Grade II listed townhouse in the heart of Chelsea. Spread across four floors the accommodation boasts such original features as the pickled pine paneling in the drawing room and further paneling to the dining room, snug, and stairs.
Mark’s designs for the house allow its original historic spirit to shine whilst through decoration schemes the house has been brought right up to date for a young cosmopolitan family in 21st century London. Specialist painters from Switzerland created feature finishes on the original paneling. The original drawing room pickled pine paneling was preserved and restored to provide a backdrop to important antique pieces, bespoke upholstery, and bold 1970’s artwork.
All bedrooms and bathrooms were completely gutted with the services and layouts updated. The bathrooms are finished to a high specification using book-matched marbles and marble mosaic linings to the showers.
