Penthouse Promenade des Anglais

  • 6 years ago

Project; Interior Design South of France. The advent of the The Grand Tour in the 17th century put the Côte d’Azur on the map for many well-healed European aristocrats. These established families were looking for change of scenery from and an escape from the dreary north. Following in their predecessors footsteps in the latter half of the 18th century.

Many wealthy British families took up winter residence in the city of Nice and its surrounding seaside towns. Increased foot traffic along the seafront called for a solid infrastructure to be constructed. This was to accommodate the city’s growing population. As a consequence, La Promenade des Anglais was established. Ever since the inception of the promenade this part of Nice has flourished. 

The Property in Detail

On the top floor sits an impressive penthouse boasting ample room of 220m². This wealth of space gave us permission to display our design prowess. Our client’s love of antique furniture and classical design was the impetus behind the design. Additionally, the property’s location and the Côte d’Azur influenced the colour palette chosen.

Firstly, an open kitchen creates a social space where guests at the dining and living areas can all interact with ease. Secondly, bedroom sizes were adjusted, this created a comfortable space. As a result, this abundance of space in bedrooms allowed for us to play with patterns and textures with ease. Playful patterns and a Riviera inspired colour palette are referenced throughout the property.

The inspiration for these colours was drawn from the Côte d’Azur, gold representing the abundant sunshine and blue is a nod to he crystal clear seas adjacent to the promenade. Moreover, one of the most exciting aspects in interiors design is that every client’s brief is unique. Therefore, as designers, this keeps us on our feet and encourages us to think outside the box for each and every project.

The client had an appreciation of Classical French design with a modern twist. This allowed us to exercise our creative flare in the quintessential Luxoria manner. Old-world charm is reflected throughout the home in the design details. This Niçoise penthouse conversion reflects the town’s old world charm and understated elegance in a dynamic way.
