Elicyon’s recently completed penthouse show apartment at The Broadway, boasts fabulous views across central London
Located at The Broadway in Westminster, the 3,218 sq ft apartment is transitional in style, featuring a crisp contemporary base layered with mid-century inspired swooping curves and warm finishes.
The interior scheme took inspiration from the architectural style of The Broadway and its positioning between the historic buildings of St James’s and the more contemporary architecture of neighbouring Victoria Street. The soft curves of the furniture brining balance to the modernist geometric patterns of the exterior, whilst an array of hand selected antiques lend an air of heritage to the space ensuring it feels characterful and collected.
The team at Elicyon sourced the artwork and antiques predominantly through Lawford Antiques, Cramer & Bell and 8 Holland Street.
The starting point for the living room was an Italian twentieth-century Scagliola plinth. This was the first item sourced for the apartment and set the tone for the soft, earthy green hues used throughout the space. In contrast, a bespoke shelving unit on the other side of the living space has been crafted from Mappa Burr wood veneer with glossy, cherry red detail.
Each of the apartment’s four bedrooms has a neutral palette in which shades of cream and white are present in varying ones and textures to give a clean, tranquil feel. Accents of colour are introduced through cushions, headboards and lighting.
On the wall of the master bedroom hangs a chalk pastel painting of a natural landscape by Tyga Helme. The dusty plaster pinks and olive greens contrast with the neutral furnishings.
Bedrooms two and three feature antique pieces such as a 1950s Italian desk and chair in ash and a pair of golden 1940s Italian ivy toleware sconces. (here’s where you can buy mid century furniture in East London)
But what really sets the penthouse apart is the extraordinary views across London. These can be enjoyed from the terrace which has been landscaped and furnished with three seating arrangements each suited to a different style of entertaining.
Charu Gandhi, founder of Elicyon, says, “This has been an incredible project to work on and is one of the most breath taking apartments in terms of both views and the potential for entertaining. We took inspiration from the architectural style of The Broadway and the building’s distinct exterior set the tone for the modern scheme inside the property.
We wanted to add an air of heritage to the contemporary space – using warm, rich textures accented with artwork and antiques, along with strong mid-century influences to create a space with charisma and personality.”
