Purple Pinch Pleat with Silver Leading Edge

Pinch Pleat Curtains

Brief Replacement Curtains required for Girls Bedroom Inspiration & Design Traditionally styled, hand-finished pinch-pleat curtains are still a favourite with clients who like a classic style using a track or pole. These are so often hung incorrectly but if hung properly, with the fabric sitting under the track, the waste fabric can sit to the back and the stack-back minimalised. The original triple pleat can be modernised with a simpler double pleat finish for those preferring less fuss. A silver leading edge was added to these curtains for a bit of added sparkle. […]

Garden Design Low Maintenance

Town House Non-Gardeners

Brief The clients did not enjoy gardening and had no real space to store lawnmowers & tools so wanted to remove the overgrown field grass and frame their front plot with a low-maintenance planting scheme. Inspiration & Design The central path was excellent symmetry for the entrance to the house but the existing light grey paved path looked old fashioned. We replaced the path with a slate grey modern slab layed on a weed control fabric and dressed the remaining area with purple slate. The boundary to the plot was planted with slow growing Box hedging which only requires light […]

Residential Country Cottage De-Clutter & Restyle

Brief Within a relatively neutral scheme this cottage needed a minor uplift to various rooms to refresh, modernise and bring back to life. Inspiration & Design All rooms were painted white and looked tired so a simple change was made just by adding a small hint of colour to various rooms with the odd feature wall in a stronger colour and refreshing woodwork to brilliant white. A few purchases of cushions with pattern lifted the bedding & seating. The frilly pelmets on windows were removed and replaced with modern soft flatboard pelmets and new curtains with a subtle pattern. The […]

care home relaxation room interior design

Activity Room/Relaxing Zone

The Brief The nursing home hosted a large bright room that incorporated a small modern kitchen, but was tired, old fashioned and rarely ever visited by residents. The space was wasted and generally only used for storage space or as a canteen for staff. The client wanted to change this room into an area that incorporated a large table for craft activities combined with an area to relax, unwind and quietly watch television in smaller numbers to the main lounge. Ideally, they wanted to include burnt orange in the colour scheme. The room was a major fire escape and entry […]

Garden Social Area, Poole

The Brief The clients garden had a low stone wall area in the shape of a U that was quite a focal point in the middle of the lawn but sat empty and looked out of place to the rest of the property. Their dream was to convert this into an area that incorporated a fire-pit for social gatherings and family time. Inspiration & Design My first thought was the wall had to be modernised as being such a dominant feature in the garden it looked shabby and dirty. Any changes made needed to correspond with the style of the […]

Branksome House Project

Brief 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 […]

Lounge Interior Design Christchurch Dorset

Mudeford Beach House

The Brief Working alongside a developer, the waterfront home required complete refurbishment. The cottage had been neglected and modernisation and re-styling for future habitation was essential. The design was to incorporate 4 double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a first-floor open-plan living space. Inspiration & Design Not knowing the age or style preferences of any prospective buyer meant creating the design was a slight gamble. I chose to avoid a ‘typical’ beach theme, but still desired to inject texture, pattern and colours linked to the water. I wanted to respect the age and style of home within the location of […]

Garden Lounge

New Forest Garden Lounge

Brief To refresh the lounge area of a New Forest Care Home within a specified budget and inject life and colour back into the space for the enjoyment of residents. The central zone of the lounge has to remain free from furniture for easy access of hoists and wheelchairs. INSPIRATION & DESIGN Due to the location of the room I wanted to link the space with the tree-line outside the window. Turquoise, lime and neutrals were used as base colours, with additional accent colours in small proportions. All existing furnishings and furniture lacked colour, warmth and pattern and this was […]
