Interiors matter: they change the way we think and feel. They change the things we say and the way we say them. They change the things we do and the way we do them. That’s why Rose Uniacke works as hard as she does to design harmonious interiors that are at once reassuring and uplifting. Have a look at her projects here and enjoy – they’re beautiful!

 

The Buckingham

Every aspect of this design has been meticulously considered, to form a remarkably light and bright apartment. Rose was commissioned to design an interior that puts gentle contemporary twists on a classic style. Every aspect of the layout and design has been carefully considered from the grand first-floor drawing-room, positioned to overlook the neighbouring Palace, that creates an unparalleled formal entertaining space, to the vast floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing light to flood into both living spaces and bedrooms.

Holland Park Apartament

 

Rose Uniacke: The Pursuit of Both Simplicity and Refinement

 

Rose Uniacke is an internationally renowned designer, known for her mastery of light and space, and her pursuit of purity and refinement. Detailed yet apparently simple, Rose’s work draws upon historical influences, combining the restrained richness of character with warmth, serenity and timeless elegance. The vision for Holland Park Villas is one of understated luxury and refinement. Using natural materials and organic textures Rose links the interior spaces to their dramatic exterior context. Soft drapes frame verdant park views through the full-height windows, blurring the boundaries between inside and out.

 

Marylebone Apartment

An important collection is given the space to breathe – and shine – in this beautifully balanced apartment. This 1940s apartment in central London required substantial renovation. The brief was to design an open, spacious setting in which to house and display the client’s extensive collection of art, books and music. Rose created a beautifully, cleverly balanced interior that is at one and at the same time lively and relaxing.

 

Richmond House

This imposing manor house in Richmond, London typifies Roses’ sensitive approach to the restoration of an important listed building, originally built during the reign of Charles 11 then extended during the Georgian period. This is a light-filled, restful family home where the past and the present harmoniously co-exist, with calm uncluttered spaces and an understated atmosphere of refinement and elegance. Modern luxury is respectfully and unobtrusively integrated within the structure of the old building.

Godwin House

The house was originally built by E.W. Godwin between 1878-1879 for Frank Miles, a society portraitist and friend of Oscar Wilde. The current homeowners wanted to acknowledge and respect its history – and they also wanted to create a home appropriate for a busy, modern family. This was not an academic historical re-creation. Using the wealth of archive material as a starting point, Rose peeled away the layers and additions, restoring the spaces purity, architectural integrity and authentic spirit whilst delivering a fresh timeless quality and new functionality.

 

Mayfair Apartment

 

Rose Uniacke: The Pursuit of Both Simplicity and Refinement

 

Rose was asked to design this apartment by a private client who wanted a simple, comfortable retreat. It is set in the attic space of a period building in Mayfair, in central London, that had lost many of its original period details. Rose’s goal was to create an interior of interest, charm and softness within a relatively minimal setting. Her design included, in the main living space, a fireplace wall with inbuilt bookshelves and log storage; and a custom-built wood and marble kitchen that can be partitioned from the dining area with rich yet unobtrusive drapes.
