Apartment Living | The piano Room

Piano and Study Room

Some projects tend to lead to other projects, as was the case with this client. After the living room makeover in this same apartment, we were asked to assist with something quite unique and certainly new to our portfolio – a piano room. The space was already partially decorated when we stepped in to help – and since this particular client has a great eye for design and detail, he had accumulated a few key pieces that were to remain in the room. The piano, of course, but also a perfectly worn-in brown leather arm chair purchased years ago, an iconic photographic print of Naomi Campbell and a super stylish, not to mention suitably retro drinks trolley.

Our challenge was to pull the room together with a distinguished and refined vibe, akin to that of a moody cigar lounge. We also had to source and accommodate a small but stylish desk that would complement the style of the room, not only in colour but also in size. Having looked around in the market, we weren’t successful with the specific dimensions required, so we opted for something custom made. The result of our desk design was so good that we almost had to pry it from the hands of our carpenter who was eager to keep it for himself.

Knowing that our client would be comfortable to have us push him somewhat out of his usual comfort zone, we didn’t run with a black and white feature he requested, but instead proposed this rich and lush greenish-blue wallpaper. Thankfully, he loved the result. In fact, it’s safe to say that he is thrilled with the overall outcome of this space and we have to admit, so are we!

  • Did I mention I got a new floor? 🤪😂 #laminateflooring #waterresistant #wholenewworld #livingroom #flooring #homeinspo #houseofhawkeshq #finally #mydomaine #myhome #myhomevibe #dubaiinteriors
  • Yesterday I assisted at a @fronteriors installation at the beautiful home of @shoestova - she opted for our brand new slatted doors in grey with matte black handles and the combination is ace! We love seeing customers play with the options to achieve their individual vision.

  • There's nothing quite like that first night back in your own bed. #home
  • I can't quite explain how happy I was to open the front door and see our new flooring all finished when I got home this morning. Home sweet home just got sweeter. When I left last week, @floorworldllc were still working on the installation and they've done such a great job on the finishing touches. Feeling all the good feel this Monday morning. Now to attend to that to do list!

  • I'm on a quick trip to Portugal which turned into a very spontaneous girls catch-up when my cousin from Dubai joined me and a friend of ours flew in from England to meet us. We found such a cool little villa on @airbnb that overlooks the rice fields in Carvarhal, Portugal.  Enjoying the end-of-summer beautiful weather. Happy Friday! X
