Located in Chelsea, Antigua House is so-called because Maurizio Pellizzoni was asked to create interiors which echo its owner’s second home in the Caribbean. Evoking colonial charm, Maurizio opted for polished wood floors, natural linens, coir matting and a cream, taupe and chocolate colour palette. MP carried out major structural work on the period property, adding an extra bedroom and bathroom on the top floor, and excavating the basement to add a cinema room, a sauna and steam room and two further bedrooms for guests with a separate entrance. The outside terrace was re-designed with skylight windows to bring daylight into the room below. Reading and working areas are dotted throughout the house to create a relaxed, flexible space.
