Lateral living meets considered design. A period footprint uplifted with the contemporary eye of Rachel Walker at Raw Interiors, St Charles Square is stylish, soothing and serene.

Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Capacity: 3
Outside, St Charles Square bears all the hallmarks of its period pedigree. Inside, find a two-bedroom apartment reimagined with timeless style for the modern urban dweller.  

A soothing natural palette characterises the living space. Its all exposed pine floors, warm tones and reams of natural light. A dialogue between the old and new, heritage features – the sleek marble fireplace, high ceilings and sash windows – converse with mid-century dining chairs by W. H. Klein for Bramin, an Italian chandelier and relaxed tuxedo sofa. Flawless finishes are indictive of the precision taken in the home’s design; note the bar area which pairs green marble surfaces with subtly curved joinery. It’s a stylish corner for cocktail creativity. Cook up a storm in the kitchen, where white Marlborough Tiles and Belgian blue limestone counter tops are sleek and streamlined. A state-of-the-art Devialet sound system sets the scene for evening dinner parties.  

With soft hues and serene atmospheres, the sleeping quarters are tranquil places in which to press pause. There’s a timeless minimalism to the master bedroom’s pared-back palette, complete with floor-to-ceiling wardrobe and Howe London cherry bedside tables. In the bathroom next door, dusty pink Tadelakt walls contrast with marble floors and gilded faucets. A cosy guest bedroom is wrapped in Robert Kime wallpaper, with an antique Danish desk positioned for those peaceful home-working days.
