The 7-bedroomed house had been completely renovated with new wiring, flooring etc etc and had been painted in an off-white colour throughout. However, the property wasn’t achieving the desired look the clients wanted.
As new furniture and soft furnishings had been purchased for some spaces we needed to work alongside these existing items to avoid additional costs. The couple wanted the house to come to life but had different style preferences, with one liking traditional and the other preferring clean lines and minimalism. The house is split over 3 levels and the design was to be implemented in stages starting with the ground floor then working floor by floor.
Inspiration & Design
The priority was to look at products already in situ to work out if they could be relocated to an alternative space or purchase items alongside them that would pull everything together. Adding elements of colour to rooms was essential, alongside pattern to provide form for both style choices. It was necessary to achieve a flow between all areas over the 3 floors, especially to please the minimalist.
Working alongside the client’s existing sofa and curtains the room felt empty and unloved. The wooden floor was warm in colour but left a large blank expanse so we relocated a rug to this space to add texture.
The client also wanted to install a desk into the space so a zone was created behind a sofa with a wall hanging desk and small chair. Apart from the curtains the room again lacked pattern so a textured and patterned wallpaper was applied to one wall creating a feature and a large traditional floor standing mirror was placed on the opposite wall reflecting both pattern and colour around the room.
