Interior Design and Refurbishment of an Existing House

Client: Private
Status: Current
Budget: Undisclosed

Our clients were unhappy with the layout of their existing 1980’s house. The layout didn’t suit their lifestyle and there was little natural light, creating dark living spaces. The formal sitting room was infrequently used, and they spent most of their time in the small study and kitchen. Working alongside the architects in the office, we reorganised the ground floor layout and proposed an interiors scheme to modernise their living spaces.

The formal sitting room will become the new larger kitchen, the disused dining room will become the study, with views over the garden, and the former snug and kitchen are knocked together to create a lounge with dual aspect views and access to the garden.

We created mood boards to explore the new style for the house. Our clients had requested to use blues, greys and neutrals, and to work with existing pieces of artwork. They wanted the lounge to feel warm and inviting and to be a haven, where they can relax at the end of a long day. The mood boards are a fusion of styles and fabrics, with strong accent colours coming through. The mood board for the new entrance area uses yellows and neutrals, which work well with the proposed oak timber floor boards.
