Hi from Amok.

We are really proud of our most recent design collaboration at Queen’s Park.

In 2012 our clients bought a first floor apartment in trendy Queens Park and Amok helped to design them their first home together.

Seven years on and the family had expanded a little, one son and number two on the way demanded a little more space.

Fortunately they managed to buy the ground floor flat and we helped to convert the first floor apartment into a functional yet glamorous family home.

The Living space feels really pretty and calm. Parquet floors were used but in a modern zig zag pattern. Pale grey walls toned with neutral furnishings and a splash of dusty pink.

Throughout the house there are cool colours, dark woods and antique brass fittings. It all feels a little bit glamorous and a touch more grown up than the old apartment.

The kitchen was moved from the first floor apartment downstairs and funked up with new fabulous marble slab work surfaces and a gorgeous retro pendant lamp.

The bedroom, which had previously been the living room, was glammed up with grey silk wallpaper and new bespoke joinery with antique mirrored glass, creating an exotic yet cosy space.

It’s been a busy year and let’s hope the next one is even busier.

Wishing you a Happy Christmas and a wonderful 2020 from all at Amok.

Best wishes

Neo Mint Seafoam

Hi from Amok.

This year’s Interior Design shows had a distinct feeling of growth, life, plantlife and organic forms. Lots of pastel colour palettes and tonnes of greens. The new colour of 2020 being ‘Neo Mint’.

Bethan Gray’s stunning sideboard embodies the new mood. Shades of light and dark green with brass inlay and organic shapes.

‘This new directional colour heralds the start of a new decade’– evolving from the popularity of soft pastels, ‘Neo mint’ retains similar fresh young/youthful vibes. Colour director of WGSN, Jane Boddy– describes the shade as an ‘oxygenating fresh tone; that succinctly aligns futuristic development with nature.’ Neo mint is a fresh tone of green that has a cool futuristic feel; in fact, it is a colour chosen to harmonize science and technology with nature. In addition to this, neo mint brings some nostalgia “the past”. Now, more than ever, we recognize the importance of the environment and the preservation for future generations and neo mint represents this. Seafoam is also predicted to be a key colour for 2020.

This pretty dining chair from Duisst has a slightly retro feel, brought bang up to date with antique brass framework, the curved shape and pretty pale green suede upholstery.

This room shot shows the 2020 palette altogether. Going for green walls and green furniture is a brave choice but pairing it with coral, the colour of 2019, brings the room to life.

Hello from Amok

Amok have completed some really special homes in the last year.

We are focusing on making sanctuaries for our clients. Somewhere to relax, recharge, be private; spaces to entertain and to laugh and to love.

Colour is a really personal decision. Living Coral is the Pantone colour of the year but a brave choice.

We specified coral and pink fabrics in this master suite combined with natural stone, pale grey walls and antique brass and it created a really fresh personal room.

In this Victorian Townhouse we used a neutral palette as the background for the walls and original cornices, then added slick contemporary furniture pieces and fun accessories to make the home more personal.

These bold drop pendants in this en-suite bathroom make quite a statement, helped by the mirrors that make them appear to be four instead of two. Side lighting creates the best light to your face for shaving and makeup.  

We are on the lookout for new exciting projects this Spring.
If you have a project in mind please contact us to book a free initial brainstorm and design consultation.
Best wishes
