An Award-Winning Apartment with Color Accents in Notting Hill

You will find this beautiful award-winning duplex apartment with two bedrooms in a historic townhouse in the famous Notting Hill area of London. The house was redesigned by Gunter & Co, and in 2022, it won the Home & Gardens Award for Best Residential Project. And I can see why, the apartment perfectly blends the elegance of the historic building and its original features with contemporary elements and fun color accents.

During the three-year renovation project, heritage details in the living room, such as the intricate ceiling rose and the coving and wall moldings, were carefully restored and paired with a neutral base of white walls and warm wooden flooring, putting the spotlight on these fantastic historic features.

“We aimed to design a space with all of the elegance and architectural detailing of a grand residence but with unexpected, fun, and unique detailing, color palettes, and a whole host of commissioned artworks, bespoke furniture, and accessories to reflect the creativity and love of art of the homeowners.” – Gunter & Co


The duplex apartment is located on the first two floors of the historic London townhouse. The lowest floor houses the bedrooms, while the top floor houses the living room and kitchen.


The stylish living room features the previously mentioned original details. A large l-shaped sofa sits opposite the fireplace in the center of the room.


The room has a large bay window with a window seat wrapped in La Maison Pierre Frey white boucle. The front door opens into the living room, but on the left of the door is a built-in closet to hide coats and shoes.


The living room has subtle color accents in the cushions and rug and with this ochre yellow “Isabella” chair designed by Simon James.


Curved oak glazed doors separate the living room and the kitchen.


The beautiful kitchen is custom-made by 202 Design and features floor-to-ceiling sage-green cabinets combined with brass handles and a marble kitchen island. The wine bar and coffee corner can be hidden by sliding pocket doors.


With glass-fronted cabinets, you need to think about the inside of your cabinets, in this kitchen design, they chose a ribbed background for texture which gives it a unique look.


A glass extension by McGuinness Architects is home to the banquet dining area with a sky-blue bench.


The ribbed tiles in the powder room echo the interior of the kitchen cabinets. The pink sink adds a subtle color accent.


When you head downstairs to the bedroom floor the use of color becomes bolder. The master bedroom is a beautiful room decorated in a variety of pink shades which gives it a romantic and soothing vibe.


The bay window is home to an Agape Vieques Bathtub, adding a hint of industrial design to the room.


The bed with a natural green velvet headboard sits in the center of the room. Behind the wall, you will find the walk-in closet.


The master bathroom is also a colorful room with terrazzo tiles on the floor and the walls combined with forest-green shiplap panels. The arched doors with ribbed glass give access to a double shower with a terracotta color ceiling.


The small second bedroom is also decorated in pink tones with pink polka dot wallpaper and darker pink built-in wardrobes.


The second bathroom is completely different from the first. Black Maison Bahya tiles add a dramatic tone to the room.


The bedroom gives access to a generous city garden with a lounge and dining area.
