To the (Style) Manor Born

Hampstead Manor Apartment by Design Haus LibertySome of the best interior design schemes defy description. They combine colours, textures and styles in exciting ways but still manage to create coherent spaces which are stimulating and calming at the same time. This delightful apartment at the Hampstead Manor development in north London is one such example.

Designed by architectural and interior design firm Design Haus Liberty, this apartment was commissioned by a young couple who wants a cosy home-from-home to relax in. The style is contemporary and eclectic, reflecting perhaps the international background of the owners.

The furniture is a confident mix of contrasting shapes, from the sensuous curves of the kidney-shaped sofa to the geometric occasional tables, some of which show a hint of African inspiration. We are also drawn to the riot of contrasting textures such as the smooth, pale wood of the floor against the natural stone wall panels and the luxurious plain-coloured velvets of the curtains and sofas against the highly textured rugs in bold prints.

The designers are not afraid to use bold colours either. One bay window area - walls, ceiling, curtains, armchairs and all - is swathed entirely in moody indigo, creating a soothing, womb-like ambience that naturally draws you in. The main bedroom is a paradise in pink, with clever use of framed panels in different shades and textures to add interest. Definitely more of a calming oasis for adults than a young girl's bubblegum-infected lair. 

This is a beautifully uplifting apartment full of Instagram-worthy vignettes to pique your interest everywhere you look, a masterclass in great interior design.
