INNOVATION & DESIGN
I loved working on this project with amazing views over Mudeford Quay. My clients had recently moved in and wanted to renew the dated eclectic mix of styles and fashions the previous owners had installed. With every room needing renovation we had a clean slate to work with and my client had created a great reference book of their style likes and dislikes for me to work from. Grey was their chosen colour and we opted for a warm grey tone throughout all areas with complimenting carpet to the 2nd & 3rd floors. The ground floor was purely utility with a wood effect floor laid through the office, cloakroom, and open plan kitchen, dining, living space. A new kitchen was installed that included a wood effect bank of floor to ceiling units that hosted plenty of storage, the fridge/freezer and various cooking appliances. I wanted to ensure the kitchen didn’t dominate so avoided handles etc so when in the relaxing zones it didn’t “look” like a kitchen. This bank of units then allowed for other units to be low level to ensure the sea-views were fully on show. The kitchen incorporated various materials, including a glass Splashbacks, matt white curved units and the wood effect so we continued these materials in the furniture purchased for the dining and lounging zones so that everything complimented each other.
Neil and the guys at Custom Made did an amazing job on the made-to-measure furniture for the office and all the bespoke storage units in the three bedrooms, the lounge, the entrance hall and utility room. Using reflective glass doors on many helped bounce the light around these rooms making them appear larger. Floor 2 incorporated a lounge, a bathroom and a guest bedroom and colour was added in the accessories and window treatments to these rooms to differentiate them whilst still allowing a subtle flow moving from room to room / floor to floor. The top floor hosted another guest bedroom alongside the master suite. We opted for an organic reflective wallpaper with silver curtains and dark blue accessories that offered glamour for the wife and masculine colours for the Husband. Christchurch Bathrooms did an amazing job on all bathrooms, but the master ensuite is my ultimate favourite. Modern Wave curtains dressed all the windows in the property adding texture, pattern and a modern finish. The client then added all her own personal touches and I hope it will be enjoyed by all who reside and visit.
