Rental Tips

How to give your rental apartment the designer look

How to give your rental apartment the designer look 

Following the opening of our Bussell building, our interior designers reveal where to buy the key pieces featured in our show apartments  

Coppermaker Square’s newest block, featuring 282 premium one and two-bedroom apartments in Stratford, East London, has four show apartments – each designed by one of the UK’s most cutting-edge interior design studios.

Whether you’re a professional couple or a cosmopolitan student, you can get the look in no time, thanks to our design guide.   

  1. Studio Heff: young, female and fashion-forward

Amy Hefferman’s one-bedroom apartment uses feminine florals, specially-commissioned works from local artists and soft furnishings to create the perfect home for a young female renter with an interest in fashion and boutique brands.

She explained: “Many of the pieces were sourced from London, giving our renter ideas of places they may want to explore themselves.”

Shop the look

  • Create a real entrance with this console from GamFratesi for Gubi, with two levels for displaying pieces such as this playful lamp from Folie Chambre and Yorkshire-based studio Matilda Goad.

  • Add confidence to the space with distinctive wallpapers, such as bold florals from House of Hackney and this fun floaty ribbon design from US company Schumacher.

  • Textiles from independent female homeware brands compliment the apartment’s existing colour palette and pieces. Find these fun frilly bedroom cushions from La Maison Lisette and a vintage brown silk heart-shaped pillow by Cesca Dvorak.

  1. 2LG: metropolitan male

This husband and husband duo 2LG Studio had a young male renter in mind – with a passion for gaming, the gym, and biking – when they designed this one-bedroom apartment. They used vibrant colours to connect the space to the views of the city outside.

They said: “The personality comes through in the carefully chosen pieces, with a smiley mirror, cartoonish shelving, collectible toys, and graphic rugs.  A lot of fun was had designing this space with a view to facilitating the active gamer who lives there.”

Shop the look

  • Make mealtimes pop with these sculptural dining chairs by the pioneer in recycled plastic furniture Dirk Vander Kooij and the SPACE stool/side table by local designer-maker Madeleine Ann Taylor.

  • This bold graphic statement rug designed by 2LG for London-based brand Floor Story helps to create the perfect gaming space within the living area.

  • Add a touch of retro futurism to your apartment with this funky coffee table designed by James Stickley.

  1. Holloway Li: high-powered professionals

Holloway Li took inspiration from natural textures, colours and shapes, to create a relaxed two-bedroom apartment suited to a young professional couple with high-pressured corporate jobs – as well as a passion for entertaining.

They said: “We wanted this apartment to feel mature and refined, to mix the feeling of a chic Brooklyn warehouse apartment with a modern cosy London home.”

Shop the look

  • Combine comfort with a design statement with the Puffy Lounge Chair from Faye Too Good, complete with detachable cushions.

  • Use lighting to create different living ‘zones’. Heathfield and Co’s Koa Double Pendant will create the perfect mood at a dinner party, while the stunning tortoise shell glass Gigi Light brings a focal point to the lounge and the Arlo Table lamp adds a touch of elegance to your desk space.

  • The living room’s long floating shelf is the perfect place to display different objects and artwork, such as Cornish artist Laura Menzies’ oil paintings and candles by Earl of East.

  1. Jessica Jung: fun-loving young couple

Designed for a creative young professional couple, Jessica Jung’s one bedroom apartment marries unique handmade pieces from East London designers with affordable items from high street favourites.

She said: “I was inspired by the energetic feel of East London as a creative and innovative hub. Bold brights are used throughout to bring a lively energy to the apartment.”

Shop the look

  • Handmade crockery, mugs and vases from Brutes Ceramics, based in Hackney Downs Studio, give the apartment a homely, bohemian feel.

  • Colourful cushions from H&M, a bold throw from John Lewis and a large rug in warm and neutral tones from Heal’s, create a soft layered living space that compliments the bespoke Bobbi Beck wall murals.

  • Paper flowers handmade from biodegradable and recycled tissue, by East London paper florist Karen Hsu at Pom Pom Factory, make a great alternative to fresh blooms.
