How would you describe your style?

"Using sophisticated palettes of refined materials, Covet Noir’s portfolio is defined by neutrality and quality. The studio's style is timeless and considered; rather than follow trends. While every project is unique, each is linked by our distinctive layering of neutral materials and finishes. Curating art, antiques and accessories to create distinctive interiors for their clients to retreat to. Covet Noir are careful to be true to the architectural heritage of their projects, working with specialists to install sympathetic period detailing where appropriate."

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"Covet Noir recently completed the full refurbishment of a beautiful Victorian townhouse in Notting Hill. A stone’s throw away from Westbourne Grove the clients tasked the studio with creating an elegant family home to be proud of. Set across five floors, Covet Noir developed a layered palette for the house that evoked a tasteful sense of luxury. The studio reinstated much of the period detailing that had been removed over the years, adding in beautiful plaster details to the main spaces. Every element from the bespoke upholstery to the beautifully detailed joinery was considered to suit the client’s needs. The overall result is a tailored modern home that their clients absolutely love."
