The brief was to create an elegant interior to complement the traditional period features of this refurbished property. A muted light colour palette was used with fine ebony wood, antique silver finishes and luxurious tactile fabrics to enhance both the heritage and modernity of the building. Family had to be at the forefront of the design. The furniture and finishes had to compliment the grand architectural details and yet still feel like a family home. While still being classical, we were careful to ensure the design was family focused.
This is particularly highlighted on the basement floor, where an impressive pool area encompasses a large swimming pool, changing rooms and wellness spa. The pool sits next to a casual sitting room, and extends from the house out to the garden with arched glass doors that create an inside/outside feel to the space. This enables them to move freely between these areas, as a growing family, an entirely idyllic set up.
From a quirky homework room to a formal gentlemen’s study, everybody has their own uniquely designed space as well as many multi functional communal areas. The basement also houses a Cinema Room with ample cloud-like seating, where a beautiful Agate wall punctuates the plush bar area giving the considered mix of luxury and practical design all in one space.
