This superb project was an absolute dream. A large Stately Manor with original historical features. It was tired and dated and in need of some sympathetic refurbishment. The brief was to create an elegant yet homely spaces for family life and entertaining. As well as creating personalized spaces for their children.
Contemporary New Build We started off this project after lengthy consultation, by putting together booklets of styling ideas of different finishes and colours for the main architectural elements, flooring – timber and tile, doors, ironmongery, wall finishes etc. We gave numerous alternatives in different colourways and the different looks that would be achieved. Having then decided on warm tones of walnut, and deep figured beiges of the marble floor tiles, we then worked on the finishes for the wall cladding in the Leisure Area and Bathrooms.
Country Estate Further to a full redesign and structural work, we knew that getting the maximum storage into this space without it feeling cramped was key. A peninsular was added which housed the double stainless steel sink and dish washer. Having this area as the ‘prep’ area freed up a lot of other cupboard space around the perimeter for drawers and storage.
