Did you know that we have our own team that can take care of Design Services for your short let flat? We receive constant requests from our hosts to put our magic wand on their flats and transform them into the unforgettable gems of London that they really are. Take a look at The Lillie Road Residences, our most recent case of the redesign.
1 – The initial situation
The Lillie Road Residence I, II and III were three flats very well located with a huge potential for short let, but sadly unexploited in terms of decoration and furniture improvements. Our very own City Relay Design Team stepped in and took charge of revamping these hidden gems by combining homey elements with modern appliances.
2 – What we did
Our Design Team went to visit the three flats and came up with a list of high-quality furniture items and amenities they considered essential for short let. Thanks to their experience in short-let, they perfectly know which items will give a homey and cosy touch to your flat. Pictures speak for themselves, take a look below!
Lillie Road I:
The first flat was a blank canvas which allowed our Design Team to let their creative juices flow. The flat benefits from lots of natural light, which made it easy to add the decorative elements in the right places, so as not to overcrowd the areas. The open space used as kitchen and living room is quite spacious, so a big dining table with five bold chairs was the first element needed. Extra lighting was important, but not imperative. The two pictures hanging on the kitchen wall created the transition between the kitchen and the living room area. As for the bathroom, the white marble and the high-spec fittings made it necessary to keep everything simple and clean, so the Design Team went for a simple pot of greenery.
Lillie Road II:
The second flat benefitted from a large tilted window in one of the upstairs bedrooms, which allowed for the natural sunlight to penetrate the room perfectly. Warm, neutral colours were chosen for the decor and the bedding, in order to fit the wooden flooring.
Lillie Road III:
The third flat benefitted from a very similar fitting, keeping all properties consistent in terms of looks and decor.
3 – The result
These 3 flats were furnished and decorated to a very high standard, keeping the owner’s level of satisfaction really high. Making our host happy is #1 priority and thanks to our Design Team we managed to achieve this one more time!
