With the property essentially a ready-to-sell show home, the plan was to create a space that would entice prospective buyers and show them how it could look.
"We wanted it to be a pad designed for entertaining," Rebecca adds, "with loads of personality and one-off pieces of artwork to make it feel more like a real-life lived-in home..."
Rebecca and her team wanted to really max the warehouse setting: "we added concrete and brick back in to run with the urban-loft feel," she adds. "The concrete ceiling [as glimpsed below] worked particularly effectively, too."
The project in a nutshell
The property: A refurbished apartment in a warehouse block
The high ceilings of the property were both 'a gift and a challenge', Rebecca tells us, adding: "We really wanted to make the most of them as sometimes high ceiings can make a room feel cold and vacuous, so that was definitely something we paid a lot of attention to."
Concrete wallpaper and high-climbing book shelves are two of the methods used to make the most of the height; "we filled the shelves with 300 books!" Hunt adds.
The testament to the design of the space is that Rebecca herself would, she admits, happily move into the property were the option there. "The master bedroom oozes luxury," she tells us, "I want to get my own laptop out in the study and work from home there! I want to invite guests into the lovely guest room but that said, I think my absolute favourite room is the main living area, with its view into the dining and kitchen area and the YEAH YEAH wall lights above the metal medicine cabs".
Rebecca's advice for anyone who is currently working on their own redesign project? "Pin down your preferences. Choose items you love and don’t rush into purchases until you know you love them! Give yourself time to live in the space for a little while and get to know how you use it before you try to work out what the rooms need. Make moodboards for each room - this will allow you to see how things work together."
