How To Do Urban Chic in Southwark London With Aplomb

Rushworth Street is a boutique style development in central London near Blackfriars by Alexander James Interior Design. I love this development because it shows how you can do urban chic in Southwark London with aplomb without sacrificing quality or eco-credentials.

The 9 luxury flats are a subtle mix of palette colors blending beautifully into the urban environment. There are a lot of greys and white oaks with pops of warmth added by bronze and brass details. The decor is likewise unique – giving off the sophisticated vibe of a well-traveled aesthete. The look is neutral but not boring – a difficult combination to achieve!

The Rushworth Street development is part of the regeneration of the Southwark area. It’s in a trendy area conveniently located near Southbank. Unlike the rest of South London, there are convenient Tube stations nearby and the area is attracting young professionals priced out of Bermondsey and other ares that have already had the urban regeneration treatment.

There are eco-friendly features throughout the development as well not visible in these photos. For example, there is a green roof with a sedum covering, solar PV panels provide electricity for the common areas and air source heat pumps providing low-carbon hot water and heating for each flat. All of these features means this development not just looks good but also is meant to be a long-standing quality addition to the neighbourhood.
