Discover the Exciting Parisian Painterly London Home in 2022

2022•06•28

Here we present you a past-hued Marylebone pied-à-terre for a Los Angeles couple crafted by Maddux Creative you might fall in love with.

Having a homeowner willing to take risks and follow the designer’s idea is not something common but when this merges with one the pied-à-terre project, the London-base design firm by Maddux Creative it becomes even more rare and unique. This project includes a couple from Los Angeles with two 20-something daughters, that were aiming for a chic canvas to display their growing collection of contemporary art. They found it in a 1920s building in the Parisian London’s Marylebone neighborhood. It is a charming two-bedroom apartment replete with period details, such as original moldings and parquet flooring.

The architect Scott Maddux worked on the original features of the house and has provided a timelessness and full of personality style to the apartment. The architect started his journey three decades ago when he was relocated to London, which this expressed with a lot of expertise on this project.

Both the floors, which they sanded down for a bare-looking finish and the Haussmannian-style moldings feel very Parisian. All over the place, the designer played with the idea of making the people wonder what is new and what is original to the house structure which the homeowner adventurous vibes helped as they were very receptive to the more artistic and even crazier ideas of bringing London and Paris together in one place.

In fact, the designer presented creative solutions abounding home away from home. The clients were slowly building their art collection and during this project, they weren’t really sure how much time the walls would be kept blank so the team decided to embrace it and turn it into something interesting.

On the opposite side of the main room can be founded the dining space featuring a Cceccotti table and Anna Unwin’s vintage danish dining chairs upholstered in the sheepskin. The walls feature a color-block paint effect, adding modernity and authenticity to the original 1920s moldings.

Right next to the living room, we can find the library area, which contains a Christophe Delcourt sofa, a Paola Buffa armchair, a Villiers cocktail table, a Tufenkian rug, and a vintage pendant light.

The apartment features original details from the ’20s, including the moldings and floorings in the living room. The designers commissioned a bespoke serpentine sofa that’s based on an antique piece, while a Lambert and Harper daybed is upholstered in red leather from Rogers&Goffigon. Can be also spotted a Ross Chisholm painting hung above a Saarinen sofa. Also, a Pierre Augustin Rose’s cocktail tables, while the cabinet is by Victor Courtray is from Foster&Gane. The mirrored artwork above the fireplace is by Sabine Marcelis and Brit van Nerven, the multimedia work to the left is by Silvina Der Meguerditchian, and the light fixture is from Charles Burnand.

On this project, the designer has collaborated with the firms’ co-founder, Joanna Le Gleud, a textile designer turned decorator. For instance, in the main room, where the sitting and dining areas are included, was used a subtle combination of paint shades to layer shapes over the existing wall paneling scheme inspired by the artist Ben Nicholson and his way of layering the colors. It’s not something that intuitive but after a closer loom can be spotted a gradual transition around the room which might be risky but as it is not obvious, the homeowners won’t be bored of it that easily.

The London-based firm Maddux Creative was assigned to design a pied-à-terre for an LA-based couple and their kids with a growing contemporary art collection. The firm’s co-founders, Scott Maddux and Jo Le Gleud, paired the entrance hall’s existing mirrored doors with a Robert Stephenson antique Bulgarian runner, a Mint terrazzo console table, and a pair of vintage lamps found at a Paris flea market. Can be also spotted a sculpture by Abigail Ozora Simpson, and the photographs by Karl Blossfeldt. Photography by Michael Sinclair

Maddux Creative envisioned a playful mural, painted by Isobel Day, for the powder room. The vanity is topped with black marble and a terra-cotta basin from Bert&Ma. Can be spotted an Edition Limitée from the mirror and the lightning is by Michael Anastassiades. Photography by Michael Sinclair

Maddux and Le Gleud tried a different color technique in the adjoining library, which can be closed off from the main living space with sliding glass doors. In this distinct sitting room, were used 3 different shades of green highlighting the original moldings. The room has good solar exposure in which this technique looks like shadows rather than paint turning this original feature into something modern and actual.

Here can be seen the small but functional galley kitchen. It isn’t used for extensive meal prep as the homeowners mostly eat out while they are in town. Rather, it’s a space for making simple meals and coffee. Can be seen some Calacatta Verde marble, brass-clad appliances, and cabinetry, and a 19th-century British painting of a young girl makes for a beautiful vignette. Photography by Michael Sinclair

The primary bedroom is enveloped in an Altfield grasscloth, while the trim is painted in complementary shades of blue. A pair of vintage bamboo mirrors flank a Ross Chisholm’s painting. As the bedroom doesn’t get a ton of natural light they decided to embrace it and go all in the dark and moody blue. Photography by Michael Sinclair

The walls and ceiling of the primary bath are made of polished plaster in a soft green finish. Here, a custom unpolished brass washstand is topped with a Vert d’Estours marble basin, the Water Monopoly sink fittings, and the sconces are by Michael Anastassiades from Sigmar. The mosaic floor displayed is Jean Cocteau murals inspired and realized by Pierre Mesguich Mosaik. Photography by Michael Sinclair

The design firm remodeled the primary bath, installing a brand-new shower with partition walls featuring the same green plaster finish as the walls and ceiling. The designer inspired himself on a trip he made to Menorca from where he return fully obsessed with plaster walls. Most of the flat have very orthogonal geometry, so he wanted to round everything off in the baths to balance that. The showerhead is from the Water Monopoly. Photography by Michael Sinclair

The guest bedroom features a pink Phillip Jeffries wallpaper. The bedroom on the contrary to the other has a lot of natural light see they chose this fresh, joyous shade. The Murano glass sconce is vintage, and the bedside is antique. Photography by Michael Sinclair

If this is not enough, the house count with a small galley kitchen and two bedrooms, there are two suite baths and a powder room overflowed with drama. For the powder room, the co-founders conceived a unique sketch-like mural that extends onto the vanity itself. In addition, in each one of the suite baths, are displaced an intricate mosaic floor Jean Cocteau murals-inspired.

The guest room’s pink theme is matched in the suite bath, where we can see a big emphasis on the green color scheme. The floor features another Jean Cocteau-inspired mosaic, the shower screen is custom, and the sink surround is Jordan Pink Portugal marble. Photography by Michael Sinclair

There is a mosaic on the front step of the building and beautiful stained glass in the staircase and to keep it in the same register the team was aiming to pull those colors and details into the interior as a nod to the ’20s. The designer explained his intentions on this project and the flow through the ambients was one of the big concerts as the floor pattern sort of dances around the objects in the room creating a playful environment that both designers and clients agreed on.

We can say that with this project, the perfect harmony, and marriage between the old and new Parisian London home can be achieved and this partnership between the homeowners and designers was the perfect match for the occasion.
