£13m showhome unveiled at Regent’s Crescent as apartment sales hit the halfway mark
Millier, who also developed the full interior scheme for the project, have designed the three- bed show residence, which spans nearly 3,000 square feet and across three floors.
The Marylebone-based studio has delivered on a brief to “celebrate the historical significance of the building and the grandeur of the Regency period…whilst introducing a modern touch to create beautiful spaces for contemporary living”. Subtle references to the era and surroundings include hanging pendant lights, gilded ceilings and hand painted botanicals; furnishings have been inspired by the tailors of Savile Row.
Helen Westlake, Creative Director, Millier: “The Regency Period was a time of great innovation and enlightenment. Many Royal Societies were founded in London, introducing new thinking and achievement. Our design of the first residence at Regent’s Crescent takes reference from this period of refinement, embracing elegant touches and references and applying them with contemporary finish.
“Regency proportions and neoclassical lines give an immediate sense of grandeur to the residence’s entrance hall. Hanging pendant lanterns are a modern interpretation of the elegant gas lights first illuminated in London during the Regency period, whilst the era’s Royal Astronomical and Horticultural Societies are subtly referenced through the hallway’s gilded specialist ceiling finish and bespoke sideboard featuring hand painted botanicals in relief. Other horticultural touches include a large fitted, hand-painted eglomise glass panels within the master bedroom; referencing the flora of adjacent Regent’s Park. Luxuriously tailored seating and upholstery features throughout, with pieces incorporating buttoning and smart pleats, inspired by Savile Row.
