When Texas-based designer Lucinda Loya set out to transform a cold, corporate London apartment for rising model Maya Henry, there was one thing that sold her on the project: A pair of blush fringe chairs.
Since Loya was given only one month to complete the entire project, the designer placed the emphasis on adding color and personality to space, as opposed to starting from scratch. Having previously worked with Henry’s family in Texas as well as in New York, Loya had a strong foundation when looking for complete creative freedom.
This chic two-bedroom London apartment is the home for up-and-coming model Maya Henry. Loya wanted to take a young, fresh, feminine approach to outfit this flat as a stylish home for the young model. The upstairs study was transformed into a closet to accommodate this young fashionista’s growing wardrobe and accessories.
The designer always begins each project by paying attention to the classic lines and then she can infuse the space with femininity and a stylish edge. Her goal was to provide a fun, bold design for a career woman.
Most of the art was chosen from Henry’s family’s private art collection. The design firm selected items that would complement the design and had them transported to the London apartment.
