Mix together an adventurous young couple and a fantastic Grade II listed 18th century barn in the Kent countryside and designer Adrienne Chinn and this is what you get – a light-filled space showing off original beams, stone and brick with an eclectic, yet harmonious, mix of antique, Chinese and modern furniture. Ethnic accents from the couple’s international travels add quirky touches.
In the living room the Neutral tones on upholstery and curtains provide a foil for the rich colours of the paintings, figurines and antique Persian rugs. In the dining room the striking cream, aubergine and celadon scheme was inspired by the owner’s collection of Chelsea ware. Adrienne designed the bespoke rug and special built-in display units.
This modern kitchen design occupies a new extension built onto the back of our client’s house. The circular breakfast bar was cast from molten magma and space-saving storage solutions feature heavily.
The juxtaposition of black granite worktops with clean lined, traditional painted kitchen units adds a touch of drama to this combined kitchen and dining room.
Sleek stone tiling and polished plaster bring an air of clean luxury to this penthouse bath and shower-room.
This bathroom was carved out of an existing bathroom, toilet, airing cupboard and part of a corridor. The original art deco bathroom’s features were preserved and enhanced with vintage and modern reproduction fittings.
Adrienne kept the basic hotel design simple and practical, with dark brown floors, sturdy tables and chairs, rustic lighting and sage green and cream on the walls and woodwork in the restaurant. The dining room is simple and classic with its mix of wooden furniture and Lloyd Loom chairs.
An international company opening up a London office requested a traditional “Gentlemen’s Club” interior to reflect their central London location. Adrienne worked with their local designer to create a comfortable interior full of custom-made mahogany furniture, leather seating, and Oriental rugs. The offices came with the added bonus of an outside deck, and Adrienne collaborated with landscape designer Tim Jackson of Kingdom Garden Design on the design and supply of the planting and all-weather furniture.
