— Fish Island, Hackney Wick
The design inspiration for this 3-bedroom apartment came from the development being closely linked to the rich local creative scene and the vibrant street art that can be found in and around Hackney Wick. The living room features a stunning wall-length collage of abstract art, posters and lithographs and the colour palette is a punchy mix of burnt oranges, hot pinks and citrus yellows which are used through feature paint effects and furnishings, influenced by the bright colours of the local graffiti. To complement these, monochrome finishes have been used in key pieces of furniture such as the sideboard, dining table & chairs and lighting.
A key element of the design was the need to create a sociable entertaining space, with clear delineation from the open plan living space. This was achieved by designing and building banquet seating upholstered in hot, punchy orange fabric, complemented by a matte black round table and chairs. The funky orange sofa, statement occasional chair and bold styling pull the whole scheme together.
In the three bedrooms the vivid colour palette is continued, balanced by warm neutrals and touches of industrial matte black. The whole scheme is enhanced and brought even further to life by the generous use of plants and foliage.
