Jo Malone commissioned Rose to design their global headquarters: a Regency town house, in central London, comprising offices, a generous drawing room, a room for large meetings and a smaller, cosier garden room for more intimate gatherings.
It is an interior of interesting contrasts: some subtle, some more striking.
It is a space that is understated yet characterful, with some dramatic details and distinctive, high quality antiques.
It is light, airy and minimal but also textured.
It is understated but also characterful, with exquisitely chosen, dramatic details.
The reclaimed wood floors and wild greenery soften the architecturally imposing setting and hint at the botanical origins of the brand’s renowned perfumes, candles and cosmetics.
Its pale walls and generally neutral palette contrast excitingly with the black detailing that appear throughout, an allusion to Jo Malone’s product packaging; they are also the perfect foil for the opulent fabrics, distinctive antique furniture and intricate mouldings that are important features of the scheme.
The definition of understated luxury, it pays subtle homage to the 18th-century grandeur of the townhouse in which the offices are located.
