ENTRANCE HALL & LOBBY - EXTENSION
The Brief: Design and build. Creating a functional landing space for shoes, bags and coats. Inviting, light & spacious & easy to maintain. Seating.
The Design: A recess ledge in place of a window with the addition of a bronze mirror adds depth & interest. The ledge creates a useful surface & 'landing' space. A vaulted ceiling adds a sense of grandeur and the added volume makes the space feel larger than it is. These tiles are bespoke, taking them onto the wall widens the space. Underfloor heating here for a practical & durable entrance with an impact
THE QUIET AREA - GARAGE CONVERSION
The Brief: Explore options for a garage conversion
The Design: This footprint was divided into 2 useful areas: A small study, accessed via an open space named the 'Quiet Area'.
This seating area focuses around the beautiful garden views. For a client who loves pattern and colour, a bold wallpaper has been used to bring the outside in. The adjoining lounge is narrow so this open area adds a sense of width and space.
KITCHEN EXTENSION & RENOVATION
The Brief: Sociable seating, utility, pantry
The Design: The U shaped kitchen allows for a great shaped lounge area in the new extension. Bringing the outside in and maximising the garden views was my main focus in this design. Glass walls and a large roof light ensure that light floods the space. The exposed brick wall, feature lighting and a detailed mosaic splashback add texture and interest.
OLDER GIRLS BEDROOM
The Brief: Renovation & rewire. Light, bright, modern, to take through teenage years. Desk & social area.
The Design: Based on her memory of a programme with a princess & a window seat, this became the design priority to work around and it creates plenty of storage. Essential socialising space, this seat is functional and adds width to the room. The doorway was moved to improve the layout and space taken from a hallway to create hanging space. A small window was added to give more light & views, as well as a ledge for display and storage. Dual aspect makes any room extra special & the zebra fabric ties the colours & details together perfectly.
The Brief: Industrial loft with glamour
The Design : Microcement throughout with a glamorous chandelier. The luxury of a huge space here - more photos to follow
The Brief: Impressive. Different but must fit downstairs aesthetic
The Design: The built in shelving is a great opportunity when building walls. 3 layers of mood lighting. I love the vertical pattern of the marble tiles and the oak with a live edge adds real warmth. The black metal ties in well to the rest of the house.
