Beachfront Penthouse

The latest project that we have undertaken is a frontline beach penthouse in Marbella, Spain. Although not a vast property, it has been built with large proportions and its wide corridors, open plan layout, large windows and high ceilings give it a feeling of light and space.

We have decided to keep this airy feel by using a very neutral colour pallet and minimal decor, selecting only the finest pieces to compliment the rooms and allowing the space and the fabulous sea views to take centre stage.

We kept marble floors throughout the apartment and used rugs from vintage and antique markets in the bedrooms and one zebra skin in the living room. This animal feel gave a slight colonial theme to the room which we complimented with an old antique colonial coffee table and we sat it between two hand dyed leather Chesterfield sofas. We chose a worn leather to give the room that extra character, and the brown leather sofas complimented perfectly the antique pieces which we offset with lanterns and soft lighting.

In the corridor we chose a chesterfield chaise longue, again in worn brown leather and it is positioned Underneath a large wrought iron hung lantern.

In the study we chose a large antique mahogany desk, with all its original features and a traditional desk light in pride of precedence. Complementing that room we had commissioned two Delightful mahogany Chesterfield tub chairs, which we had made in a tan leather and were made to our specific requirements. For our desk chair we also commissioned a swivel Chesterfield chair, once again in mahogany and tan leather. The final result was slick and elegant but not without character.

All the Chesterfield furniture was from Chesterfield Lounge, our favourite supplier of genuine Chesterfield furniture.
