A striking piece of contemporary art adorns the Bradstowe House reception, playing on the light-transforming characteristics of beautiful stained glass. This elegant embellishment is the vision of renowned interior designer Naomi Cleaver, who worked across the entirety of the Bradstowe House interiors.
Naomi has a stellar career both behind and in front of her. Having studied three-dimensional design at Willesden College of Technology and Kingston University, she is now a highly recognised design consultant and interior designer who has worked with a wide range of prestigious clients.
Her inspiring and practical vision resonates throughout Bradstowe House, with the amenity spaces teeming with contemporary fittings and fixtures that give an edge to the everyday and carry through a theme of utilitarian glamour. The Residents’ Lounge is a prime example of this with a reimagined shared family kitchen area and the room’s centerpiece, The Book Façade, which is an intricate wall consisting of thousands of book spines, providing an extremely unique backdrop to this vibrant communal area.
When it came to the reception area, Naomi wanted to produce something a little different to fill this spacious and bright room, and create an enticing entrance for residents, guests and passers-by alike. She saw the space as an opportunity to exploit the 7m ceiling height and the abundant glazing by commissioning a very special installation of ceiling jewellery created by London based jewellery designer Lily Kamper.
A graduate of the Royal College of Art, Lily Kamper has her own jewellery label and creates pieces that are truly one-of-a-kind and express a feeling of modern luxury. With so many accolades to her name for a young designer, Lily is in high demand and Bradstowe House is very lucky to be housing one of her creations.
The detail and care it takes to produce such an exquisite piece is apparent by its residing beauty. Each section of Perspex was carefully dyed by hand with each colour having been mixed individually to the highest specifications. It’s no wonder that since Lily launched her label at Paris Fashion Week her work has gained recognition in the fashion world and lead to connections with the British Fashion Council, The Global Fashion Awards and Vogue.
Many of the pieces within Bradstowe House are distinctive because they are truly bespoke, designed by Naomi and made by her network of highly skilled makers. This means you will see things in Bradstowe House that you won’t find anywhere else, making this a very special place to live.
All of the interiors promote a feeling of lavish living but with a high sense of practicality about them, meaning residents have everything they need and feel completely comfortable in the space they can now call home.
