Kensington Interior Design – A Brief History

Michael Reeves would like to take you through a brief history of the Kensington area. It is well-known for being home to London’s most expensive real estate. It has gained enormous recognition for the magnificent Regency era architecture in the area and is where many of London’s most famous landmarks are. You can find the Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace, Holland Park and the Natural History and Science Museums all within a few streets of each other.

You will notice that the streets of Kensington feature beautiful Georgian and Victorian homes that have set the architectural styling of the area for many years to come. Furthermore, this sophistication has been matched by the interior design of Kensington homes and those in the surrounding areas.

Kensington oozes class and sophistication as it is an affluent area. For this reason, it is challenging for someone to create interior design that not only matches this divine history of the area, but also reflects the tastes of each individual client.

Interior design for homes in Kensington are inspired by one particularly famous Kensington interior that drives the landscape to this day. It is the home of world-famous interior designer Justin Van Breda and his “early Victorian workers’” cottage, which was renovated in a style that he believed would reflect both the area and his, and his partner’s, personal tastes and he christened the result as a “gradation in sophistication.” The property is adored by people in Kensington and, indeed, throughout the world and it has featured in several home and style publications internationally.

As Kensington is home to some of the country’s most magnificent architecture, famous buildings and landmarks, as well as one of the most affluent communities, catering to the interior design of both residential or commercial properties in Kensington perfectly is vitally important.

Michael Reeves creates contemporary designs that he calls “quite luxury” as they add even more style and class to the beautiful Kensington neighbourhoods without being too extravagant. If you live in Kensington or around the area and require the help of a local interior designer, then get in contact with Michael Reeves today and we will happily consult on your project.
