Contemporary Living Room Interior Design A client with a desire to make full use of their space, in terms of design as well as practicality, is always a delight to work with. And we were thrilled to find this was exactly the case with our latest client, when transforming their Houghton-on-the-Hill based home. Starting with a room that had – as many living areas do – a TV as a focal point, we decided to transform the space into a family friendly haven with a stylish edge and a distinct style. To do so, we split the room into two, with one area – with its stunning bespoke sofa – reserved for relaxation and TV time, and the second as a space to enjoy a moment of quiet by the fire, perhaps with a good book. Taking the client’s personal taste into consideration, we began by gutting the space entirely, and starting afresh. Layering materials with a herringbone floor and teal accents, we transformed the space into a sophisticated haven, complete with feature Black American Walnut fireplace, an armchair reupholstered in velvet, and a false wall with built in bespoke storage for a practical edge in an otherwise luxury driven interior.
Luxury Living Room Interior Design Sometimes in a family home, all of your space becomes swallowed by stuff, especially if you have young children. When our client approached us about creating a ‘child free space,’ then, we knew exactly what needed to be done. Approaching the living room through the lens of a busy parent, we wanted to create something soothing, tranquil and grown up, perfect for relaxing at the end of a long day. Incorporating colourful artwork allowed us that opportunity, whilst showcasing the personality of the client. Taking the room back to the brickwork, we re-wired and insulated for a cosy feel. Replacing the rotten entryway with elegant French doors added instant glamour in an understated fashion, elevated by beautiful walnut flooring and a modern working fireplace, in a surround of muted tones. Sourcing the furniture, designing the lighting and working with tradesmen, we co-ordinated the project end to end, and our client was thrilled with the result, as were we – knowing the owner has a snug to return to once the kids are in bed fills us with joy, and the pride of a job well done.
Stylish Reception Interior Design Making use of additional space in an existing home is a beautiful thing. While some will walk past an unused area day after day without a second thought, our client had other ideas – to use their large hallway as an extra room. With natural lighting and ample space, the area had a lot of potential. Beginning with the removal of an old beam that had previously blocked a window, we matched new panelling to original details, restoring the heritage of the home. Further highlighting the history of the house, we had French polishers restore the original Herringbone parquet flooring, for a truly beautiful finish. Adorning the walls with paper from America, and artwork personal to the owner, we finished the room with subtle lighting, comfortable – yet stunning chairs, and side tables, for a cosy reading snug with an identity all of its own.
Boutique Master Bedroom Interior Design We happen to believe that the most awful part of visiting a luxurious boutique hotel is eventually having to leave it all behind. Luckily for us, our client is a lover of the finer things in life, and they were delighted to discover that our interior design solution was to create their bedroom as if it were indeed a boutique hotel. To start with, we took the bedroom back to its brick shell. We added insulation, re-wired the space and established new woodwork. Closely mirroring the boutique vibe requested of us, we made the decision to expand the chimney breast, which resulted in a clearly defined space for the bed and bedside storage, and deep mirrored alcoves for accessories and personal trinkets. The room was completed with made to measure, bespoke Black American Walnut wardrobes, textured faux horse hair wall covering and bespoke hand blown glass wall lights by Rothschild and Bickers. The master bedroom was transformed, giving the client the exact ambiance they were looking for. Relaxed, sophisticated and opulent, the new interior left the clients stunned, and ready to take a holiday in their own home.
Garden Design We are an interior design studio, and because of this it is extremely rare that we get the opportunity to design an outdoor space and work outdoors. So when we do, we dive straight in at the chance – especially if the forecast is lovely and sunny. In this beautiful Woodhouse Eaves garden space, we were tasked with turning a tired, elevated area which was unloved and used infrequently into a refined terrace – a perfect spot for entertaining and relaxation. To begin with a drawn out removal job – we set about disposing of ageing decking, bushes, brickwork, deep roots and fencing which had all seen better days. After levelling the space, we selected eye-catching Scandinavian fencing, stunning granite tiles laid in a brick bond pattern and bespoke artificial topiary hedges that would provide privacy. In addition to this, wi-fi controlled lights (operated via a smart phone app) accompanied new garden furniture, bespoke cushions and re-upholstered sofa sections. A newly modernised terrace framed in sunlight emerged. Our client was more than thrilled with the end result, and they now spend every opportunity outdoors. Pimms, ice and a slice anyone?
Modern Kitchen Interior Design A dream kitchen is often a large kitchen, especially for the novice chef. When food is your passion, there’s nothing better than experimenting with recipes in a beautiful setting, and even if cooking isn’t your thing, a stunning space is hard to beat. This client, based in Leicestershire wanted to transform their kitchen into a modern interior, minimalist yet sleek and luxurious. The task was an enjoyable one. With such an abundance of natural lighting, the space held a lot of potential, and we were excited to help it meet expectations. Deciding on a bright colour palette in shades of white and chrome, we chose white gloss units and pale flooring, amplifying the light through the use of reflective surfaces. Old patio doors were replaced with stylish new ones, while a modern island with a powerful extractor fan – completed the newly re-wired space. The result was a bright, airy kitchen, adored by its owners, perfect for intimate dining and parties alike.
