The living area is central to the design with the bedrooms forming the top and tail of the space. Double doors to each area provide the illusion of greater space and expertly frame the room for artistic effect. Light wide oak floorboards and individually designed rugs compliment the scheme whilst providing tactile textures upon hard surfaces to maintain the comfortable, homely ambiance of the space. Each room has a very unique feel, quite different from the next but working well together. The design expertly marries masculine and feminine influences for a universally impressive design which works well in all seasons, settings and lights.
