- Our World
The handsome house is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, amongst sprawling countryside, with the most beautiful vista from the rear of the property. On entering the house it is possible to see right through the reception hallway into the existing garden room and out to the sensational garden and pool area, with double doors leading through to the large, elegant sitting room. However, our clients felt the existing style was rather too "safe and obvious" and really wanted us to challenge them with a creative and vibrant design that created that "WOW" factor on entering their home.
It was important to the clients to retain some of the original features of the property, such as wood panelling in the entrance hall and living room and the characterful fireplaces, but to consider how we could change the overall look and feel to be something unexpected!
Our clients wanted to make sure each area had its own vibrant design scheme and personality however each room needed to flow seamlessly through to the next. This meant clever consideration on colour theory. For example, when selecting the NCS colour for the kingfisher blue hallway panelling, we wanted to find a playful patterned fabric for the bench which would perfectly balance the room. The colours in the fabric were then used to create a bespoke rug under the centre table which helped to soften the room and overall aesthetic.
As a family of five, our clients asked us to create a comfortable living space they could all enjoy together, but that really pushed the boundaries of the "norm". For example, the existing garden room felt small and dated, however, the clients realised due the abundance of natural light and exceptional views, this is where they would want to spend the majority of their time relaxing with family and entertaining friends, so this space needed to be completely reimagined.
Our clients gave us full reign to get as creative as possible, which brings us to the bespoke octagonal ottoman. We love the use of fabric and bullion fringe which adds a huge amount of fun and interest to this area of the living room. It includes an inset removable tray and great to sit round to play games. We had lots of fun creating the lampshades in the living room with very eccentric lampshades picking up on the touches of green that carry through the design scheme. We always carefully consider the lighting layout and this is evident in the living room where we have centred the directional downlighters onto each wallpapered panel – allowing for the light to wash down and gently bounce back into the room.
The underused orangery has now become a beautiful and elegant bar area which exudes elegance. The bespoke low-profile sofas and soft furnishings exude sophistication and comfort, perfect for sipping a cocktail whilst listening to soothing music and enjoying the incredible views of the gardens.
