PEEK INSIDE A TURNKEY HOME IN LONDON BY JEAN

PEEK INSIDE A TURNKEY HOME IN LONDON BY JEAN

The Drawing Room
One place he never holds back: the entry hall,
as illustrated by the custom geometric door and bronze door-and-wall trims he designed for this project.
An antique Venetian lantern hangs overhead, and the custom floor is in Carrara and Nero Marquina marbles.
“First impressions last,” Deniot says, “and I wanted to mesmerize visitors straightaway.”
He also took pains to design unique cornices for each room and to include a few surprises.
For instance, in the closets, some drawers have glass faces so you can see what’s inside , while others are lined with cedarwood.

 

Cost cutting—an exercise in which Deniot is actually quite well versed—took place elsewhere.

His interiors, even for private clients, are rarely awash in fancy designer names. He has a knack for transforming

a bargain buy into a star turn simply by reupholstering it in the right fabric.

For the Belgravia project, he imported textiles from Thailand or had them custom made in Morocco and opted for bamboo rugs over pricier silk ones.

Stylistically, his goal was to concoct a timeless look, but with just the right amount of personality—“enough to stand out,

but not too much to deter a potential buyer.”

To that end, he adopted a neutral palette, adding interest in the form of sunny yellow and rich blue accents.

“The weather’s fine when I’m in London, but apparently that is not always the case,” he says with a smile.

Where Deniot’s turnkey interiors particularly sing is in his use of antiques—a rarity in the spec-house world, where the norm is contemporary furniture fresh from the factory.

Here, the living room’s 18th-century English neoclassical armchairs and the dining room’s Louis XVI crystal chandelier

deftly add a historical layer without jeopardizing one of Deniot’s golden rules.

“In a turnkey project, you have to avoid giving potential buyers the impression that they’re entering someone else’s home,” he says.

“They want to feel like nobody has ever sat on that sofa or used the bathroom.

It needs to be fresh, fresh, fresh!”  รับออกแบบบ้าน
