Family & Dining Areas
In the family area, furnishings were kept simple but with strong styling lines, a bright red retro styled sofa with chaise end and a rug together with a statement Flos spun floor lamp and bright artworks, warm up the area. A limited palette of greys, creams, blacks and reds added drama to the space.
In the dining area the Flos spun floor lamp was repeated and a honed granite table with upholstered slimline dining chairs were specified to inject texture and as a contrast to the block of Flos Fuschia glass hanging ceiling lights above.
TV / Lounge
The larger reception room was repurposed as a TV / lounge due to it’s lack of natural light. It was important to make this room warm, welcoming and cosy especially as it had been so under used in the past. The palette was kept to oranges, taupes and greys, together with a walnut floor. This progresses harmoniously from the open plan area adjacent to it. A sizeable and comfy L shaped sofa along with an orange accent Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair and a large textured rug were specified. An oversized classic arc lamp finishes the space, along with dramatic artworks that complete the room.
A full width, bespoke lacquer wall hung unit was specified, under lit with a warm hum of LED. The 65” TV was set flush into a bespoke stud partition, so, although large it didn’t dominate the room.
Interior Architectural Details & Intelligent Lighting Scheme
All the painted panelled joinery doors were removed and new flush walnut veneered doors were specified, to create a contemporary feel. Some doors were specified with glazed panels to maximise light levels. New door furniture was specified throughout including projection hinges to allow for 180 degree opening doors to the new dining area.
Engineered American Black walnut flooring was specified in the TV / lounge, study and hallway and large format porcelain tiles in the open plan areas.
The entire open plan area was underfloor heated and new contemporary radiators installed elsewhere.
A new lighting scheme was designed and specified including new fittings and garden lighting. An Intelligent Lighting system was installed in order to create moods, ambience and timed events internally and externally, controlled from wall mounted keypads and also by iPads / iPhones.
Study & WC
The second reception room became a bright Study for the couple’s two children. A bespoke wall hung unit with LED lighting allows for ample storage and 2no. back to back desks with classic Eames EA108 chairs in bright yellow and turquoise Arne Jacobsen AJ table lamps complete the look, making it an uplifting space to study.
The small downstairs WC was transformed with sleek floor and wall tiles. On one wall a full size mirror was installed with led strip below. New lighting and a wall hung WC and basin completed the revitalisation of the space.
