The Haven

Canford Cliffs

This contemporary apartment was a newly built home. Once the client had bought it from a developer, we were brought in to give it a complete and elegant interior design, starting with a blank canvas. We started from the point of view of the artistic owner, who communicated clear ideas of his taste and style. He also wanted the space to feature luxury elements, with an overall breezy modern high-end feel. We completed everything from new fittings and fixtures, to assisting with bespoke art and furniture selection and placement, and a sophisticated sound system. 

Design’d Living listened carefully to everything I asked for and suggested some great ideas, I love the finish and the style – thank you.’ 


How we made it work

Luxurious flooring and wall coverings were installed throughout this apartment, along with carefully selected furnishings and fabrics, and bespoke artwork from Maddox Gallery in London, among othersMany of the fixtures and furnishings were sourced from contemporary designers in Italy and France. Custom-made cabinets, along with Bang & Olufsen home automation and wireless system installation make this a luxurious yet practical home. We loved sourcing the shimmering Zimmer + Rohde wall coverings which pair beautifully with the Little Greene Paint Company colours used thematically throughout this home. 

Colour theme 

The cool greys, whites and neutral tones which flow throughout this apartment are dotted with bursts of colour in a warm sandy yellow, reminiscent of the nearby coast.  

‘We helped source contemporary art for this elegant modern interior redesign, built custom-made cabinets, and used luxury Little Greene Paint Company colours throughout.’
