Luxury House in The Country
We were thrilled to be asked to provide our comprehensive interior design service for this luxury new-build country house, deep in the heart of the Lincolnshire hills.
Our client approached us as soon as his offer had been accepted on the property. This was ideal, as it meant we could be involved in some important decisions regarding the interior architecture – for example, the design of the kitchen and the state-of-the-art lighting and automation systems.
This beautiful country house now boasts an ambitious, eclectic array of design styles and flavours. Some of the rooms are intended to be more neutral and practical for every-day use. While in other areas, Tim has injected plenty of drama through his signature use of colour, statement pieces and glamorous artwork.
Formulating The Design Brief
At the initial briefing stage, our client came to the table with a head full of ideas. Potential themes and styles to incorporate – thoughts on how each room might look and feel. As always, Tim listened closely. Ideas were brainstormed and explored; requirements carefully talked through. Tim then formulated a tight brief for us all to agree on before embarking on the designs.
As with all our interior design projects, we presented our concept designs here through a beautiful set of CGI visuals. This enabled our client to see exactly what his finished interior would look like at the end – right down to the finishing touches. Working this way brings great clarity and joy to the process. Everyone is on the same page – we know what we are proposing to you and you know what to expect at the end of the project. We have found it works beautifully for all.
Metropolis Meets Radio Gaga Grandeur
Two areas of special importance to our client were the grand, double-height entrance hall and the formal drawing room.
The brief we settled on for the hall was Metropolis – Battersea Power Station – Radio Gaga Grandeur. And for the drawing room: James Bond’s drawing room where French antiques meet strong, metallic engineered Art Deco pieces.
The other rooms had equally stimulating design briefs, which Tim and his team responded to with the same level of enthusiasm.
Tim listened and learned about our family before he started designing. He used art that we had collected from our travels around the world to build a colourful, cosy, look that has some wow factor. He listened to our feedback and advised us like a friend. We very much enjoyed working with Tim and hope to use him for interior design projects in the future.
