Project by: Jane Richards Interiors
Location: Norwich, United Kingdom

Who among us hasn’t dreamt of an impossible stylish weekend getaway? “Oh me, I’m just jotting off to Norwich for the weekend, going to read on my gorgeous patio.” Anyway, this project by the team at Jane Richards Interiors is a true stunner. Full of sleek European design and a joyful use of color, the design plays up the natural light and architectural features found in the home.

From Jane Richards Interiors: Located within a short walking distance from the centre of Norwich in Norfolk, we were commissioned to design the interior of this large penthouse apartment. Primarily used as a weekend retreat, the objective was to create a harmonious flow between the two main living spaces and adjacent terraces.

The space was repositioned and redefined to create the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics. A quiet color palette contrasted with bold detailing features throughout the apartment, ensuring a calm and elegant, yet fresh and contemporary feel.

Steered by our clients’ enthusiasm for Dutch design, key pieces from the collections of Moooi, Piet Boon, Artifort and Studio Job were selected, injecting the spirit and playfulness of Dutch design into the apartment. In addition to the main living spaces a further three rooms are to be developed during the winter months.

Thank you to the Jane Richards Interiors team!
