New build London flat

When one of my readers described my interiors style as taking a trip to Scandinavia via an English car boot sale, I could not have been more flattered. So when The Spaces contacted me about featuring a collection of new build London flats, not far from my own home, that have Japanese and Scandinavian influences with an English twist, I scheduled it in immediately.

Having bought two new build flats in the last ten years, based on affordability and location, and having viewed a million more, I know the soulless white box syndrome well. However, the architects of the New Cross Lofts (for sale, btw) have done something amazing with the space and design of these flats; their use of colour, texture, wall and floor finishes, windows and outside space make these new builds more characterful and interesting than anything I have ever seen in this price bracket (all relative, I know – but in central(ish) London you’re doing well if anything is under a million these days). I also love how peaceful and serene the interior is; perfect for busy, hectic city living.

Personally, I love the light, space and clever design of these flats that make them so much more than a generic new build (like my own!!). You can see more of both flats and the sales details over on The Spaces.

Would you ever consider living in a new build?

    Have to admit I’m a convert to new builds Katy. They just need a bit of extra imagination when styling and there are some lovely bits in this one. x

    Car boot sales are my favourite thing. Along with charity shops! That new build looks amazing. Just like finding beautiful things in a car boot sale styling a new build just takes a cleverer person with taste and a good eye.

    How lovely Katy – the tonal textures on the walls is beautiful 🙂

    Enormous windows, concrete, bare plastered walls. I’m sold!

    At least with a new build you can start from scratch and make it your own. No need to be peeling off endless layers of woodchip wallpaper or dealing with the aftermath of someone else’s DIY disasters.

    Oh the colours and simplicity of design are just so calming to my eye – love!

    What a lovely new build! Having just moved into 1 myself, White Box Syndrome has inspired me to schedule in a number of interior DIYs for my blog! 🙂

    These are just around the corner from me and I have wondered what they are like inside! Very nice indeed!

    Love the outdoor space and the chairs. The warm plastered walls feel really ‘now’ too,

    Hi Katy,

    I really enjoy reading your blog. I am often inspired by some of your ideas and incorporate the ideas for clients of my design & build firm. Im curious, what type of wood floors are these in the flat pictures above? Style/manufacturer please?
