As many of our clients know, Carly Madhvani, CEO of NW3 Interiors, has a passion and keen eye for interior design after spending several years working in the industry. Working with Knoll and other trusted brand partners, Carly has assembled a spectacular collection of high-quality and luxurious furniture in her home – which doubles up as the showroom for NW3 Interiors!
We’re delighted to announce our October open house event, where Carly will be opening the doors to her home and showcasing stunning collections, advising on the latest trends and how-to’s, and exhibiting designs from local, independent designers. Split across three days between the 10th and 12th of October, the event will allow Carly to share her breadth of knowledge to help inspire you and your home!
Starting at 9:30am on Tuesday the 10th of October, the first day is designed as an all-day drop-in for architects, developers and estate agents to see the latest trends in design and gain exclusive insight and industry knowledge in to the world of interior design.
The following two days are open to registered guests only (click here to register) and will both run from 9:30am to 4:30pm. Wednesday the 11th will showcase the property and its interiors, with the highlight of the day being a talk from furniture brand Knoll, who will be showcasing their new collection. Featuring new products such as the Avio sofa and the just-released red marble, this is an unmissable session.
The last day, also open to registered guests only from 9:30am to 4:30pm, will have Carly sharing her award-winning knowledge on interior trends and how-to advice, starting at 2:30pm. This is an ideal opportunity to see what products and designs are out there, and get inspiration for how you could give the interiors of your own home a new wave of freshness.
Carly will also be displaying the luxury products of local, independent designers. A range of lifestyle, homewares and various other products, these collections cannot be found on the high street and can add an element of uniqueness to any home.

We’ve now shared 3 of our recent interior design projects – and you can read all about them here – but our blog this week has a slightly different story arc. Over the last few months Carly and NW3 have been working in Primrose Hill, helping a client revolutionise their outside terrace, and it’s been exciting and rewarding.
Our client’s garden terrace features a large section of dark brown wooden flooring, and NW3 were tasked with bringing the area to life. This client’s outgoing lifestyle involves lots of hosting, so we needed to create a vibrant area that was also functional and practical. It’s important that the design work could create a garden to be used all year round with relatively low maintenance.
Originally fixated on wooden furniture, we managed to persuade our client of the benefits of more durable materials. The dining table (pictured) is a Knoll classic, designed by Richard Schultz, and was manufactured in Italy. Fortunately, shipping was super-fast and the table arrived quickly! Paired with the table were the dining chairs, procured from the beautiful Italian brand Moroso. The chairs added key details with white, dark blue and black, complimenting the client’s design briefs. Carly’s drawings also enabled the height of the side of the chairs to fit in with the requirements for the tables – a crucial calculation, as we all know. Finally, the sofa and armchair selection were chosen for outdoor suitability, and spiced up with a variety of cushions thrown on! The white of the sofas, despite the client’s initial hesitation, contrasted the brown floor perfectly. Coffee tables from Hay and honeybee lanterns from Serralunga completed the space. Throughout the project, Carly co-ordinated multiple suppliers and organised the installation. Using NW3 meant the client’s terrace is now full of colour, lasts all winter, and has been professionally designed whilst utilising discounts available from suppliers.

Read our interview with Helen about the NW3 Interiors experience…
We asked Helen a few questions to see how she found the process, and to see if she loved the outcome. You can read her Q & A below:
1) How did you know of NW3 Interiors and what was it that attracted you to instruct us?
Carly has established for herself a fantastic reputation as the go to person in North London. Having worked with a few interior designers in the past she is the only person I will speak to now. She has a brilliant eye and an excellent relationship with all her suppliers. Her service is seamless. She always makes her herself available and is not happy until the job is 100% done.
2) Can you recall which important pieces of information you provided to NW3 Interiors to ensure the design was suitable for your situation?
I told her not white! The best advice I can give is to trust Carly and believe in the process as she is always right as white is the only colour I would put out there now! She was very practical as I also wanted outdoor cushions and she advised me that with the weather being what it is in this country we needed something more durable. Now we have patio furniture that not only looks amazing but will work all year round!
3) What feedback would you give regarding the process from design concept to completion including time and value?
Carly came over and did all the measurements, sent us digital images of what it would look like when completed and we loved this! Carly always finds us the best possible deal and always manages to work around our budget.
4) How does it make you feel now, to sit on your terrace?
Very happy indeed. As always, Carly nailed it!

Having recently shared information on our Century Court project and divulged details of a bathroom renovation in Primrose Hill, our blog this week looks at a recent redesign undertaken by NW3 in Camden.
Located just off Kentish Town Road, the Camden Mews project featured a lovely 1960’s mews house. The property is arranged over two principal levels, with the large open-plan reception/kitchen on the first floor enjoying excellent levels of light from the large south-west facing windows. It also boasts a versatile mezzanine area, two further bedrooms and two bathrooms occupying the ground floor. Starting in March, and finishing in June, the project was completed in just 4 months.
Carly’s role was to redesign the bathrooms to better suit the size requirements of the client, which meant moving a wall! The overall aim with the bathrooms was to create modern, luxurious, individually identified bathrooms. NW3 Interiors completed the design and created the colour scheme, as well as providing the fittings in budget and organising a building team to install the bathrooms to a very high finish.

Outside of the bathrooms, the house was crying out for some beautiful and unique pieces of furniture and design so that we could turn this couple’s house into their forever home. The challenge for Carly was to design and create a warm and inviting home, whilst maximising the potential space and adding luxury and ambience to the overall feel. However, by incorporating a colour scheme and furniture collection that reflect the iconic 70’s theme of the property and key changes to lighting, NW3 helped with the dream renovation.

Following our recent sharing of our very own showroom transformation and our detailing of our Century Court project, we have decided to create another piece in our transformation series. Aware that spring has broken into its stride, we promise not to use too many Easter/blossoming metaphors!
The Primrose Hill bathroom project was an incredible experience for NW3 Interiors. Our client had decided they wanted to revolutionise their bathroom. But this project wasn’t a new coat of paint – the bathroom was designed to be reminiscent of their favourite hotel, Café Royal, a 6 star Piccadilly paradise.
The challenge for NW3 was to create a true, immersive, luxurious experience in a small space. To do this, we needed trusted help. As an authorised deal of Neutra, NW3 had the perfect resources available to create just the feel. Neutra specialise in washbasins, bathtubs, shower trays and shelves with a contemporary design, with coatings from refined textures and furnishings, the result of an inspired dialogue between natural materials and advanced technologies. The marble veining was meticulously planned and installed to create a perfect movement of natural stone. The builders were amazing, installing the heavy marble with great care to ensure everything went without hitch.
This project certainly tailored to some of the finer tastes; the bathroom includes heated wall panels to dry towels and keep robes warm. We’re proud of the transformation, and hope you enjoy some before and after shots.

Having shared our showroom transformation a few weeks ago, we’ve been looking forward to creating a similar piece around our work with Whitehall Park – a group of developers with properties in North London. Century Court has been one of our favourite projects to date, and we’re very proud of the transformation that the property underwent. Our challenge: transforming a dated, top floor apartment with spectacular views of Lords Cricket Ground, into a modern turn-key masterpiece ready to be sold to private residents.
Century Court is a residential building based in St John’s Wood, London. For those non-cricket fans amongst our readers, this is the view that we were trying to maximise…
With such an excellent view, we needed to create a high-end experience using quality furniture and lovely fabrics. I have used lots of teal/blue throughout the apartment, which looks great with dark woods like walnut. An Alexander sofa from the Sofa and Chair Company, wallpaper from Arte and rugs from Rugs by Ana were crucial furnishings, and were supported by large structural changes including knocking through the wall dividing the kitchen and the main living space. This project was full on – I decided how to spend the budget, chose all colours, materials, decorations and negotiated terms with the suppliers. I worked alongside the builders and collaborated with architects to ensure this property got the makeover it deserved.
Taking the best part of 9 months, the renovations to the 113sq. Century Court have transformed the project, shifting the property from “offering unparalleled views” to “boasting considerable charms for the anti-cricket too”. Below, we have a collection of before and after photos to show how we rejuvenated the apartment.
