Featured Home – Modern Design in Chelsea
When we think of Chelsea, London, we may not necessarily think of modern. In and around the postcodes of SW3 – Sw1, much of the interior style remains traditional Victorian, and do not reflect the rich area’s many vibrant influences.
This month’s featured home on the Salacia blog however blows the cobwebs clean off. Situated between South Kensington and Gloucester Road, this new development of a once pokey Victorian top-floor flat aims to impress and delight.
Designed by award-nominated architects Droo Projects, this renovation of a run down flat formerly owned by the French Embassy has transformed the space into a breathtaking new three bed home.

A neutral but moody palette sets the background for pops of rich colour in the interior living spaces. Soft patterns contrast the oak herringbone floors and highlight the beautiful high ceilings.
Modern artwork, contemporary lighting and a few key intriguing details make this dining space conducive to producing a range of emotions for the guests. During the day, the light floods in from original tall sash windows.
Peace and serenity: the minimal design of the master bedroom reflects a private getaway from the otherwise open-plan living spaces.
And finally…the bathroom. We have discussed our love of black taps in a bathroom many times in our stories, and here is a perfect example of where lasting impact can be made in the smaller details. The backdrop of stunning and spacious Carrara marble then accented by black brassware invites a sigh of delight as you enter the space. Side-by-side basins create a functional, beautiful bathroom experience, as does the free-standing bath. What more can we ask for?
