Interior design studios Atelier Ochre and House of Dré have collaborated to design the vibrant and glamorous interiors of Ember Locke, a 121-room aparthotel in Kensington and the first Locke property in West London.
The interiors of the apartments have been curated as a series of retro boudoir rooms with colourful tones, plush materials, vibrant patterns and Art Deco details. The design echoes the golden age of Kensington while maintaining a contemporary approach reflecting the modern traveller’s habits. Impactful textures and tones are celebrated, defining the immersive look and feel of each room.
The guest’s experience of the apartment is articulated through bold character pieces: sweeping rolled banquette seating, deconstructed wardrobes and retro fittings.
Elements of glamour in brass detailing, fringes, tassels, heavy dividing curtains and curated artwork lend a sophisticated feel to the apartment rooms. Each space is curated with an eclectic mix of character pieces and punctuated with bold pattern fabrics, crafted furniture and fine rattan structures.
