A beautiful Victorian town house in London, which hadn’t been modernised since the Seventies
We were approached by a couple who had seen our work and were keen for us to mastermind their project for them. They had lived in this house in Richmond for a number of years so when the time came to embark upon an interior design project, they wanted to get all their ducks in a row first. We spent many hours together, brainstorming ideas and formulating a tight interior design brief prior to hitting the drawing board.
Eclectic Furnishings and a Mixed Colour Palette
Reimagining the interior of an old building comes pretty easily when you’re working with a gorgeous example like this. The proportions of the windows and doors are deserving of emphasis. The layouts lend themselves so well to virtually any interior design treatment you choose. For this reason we do love working on period properties.
It was quickly decided that we would extend the house at the rear to accommodate the new kitchen-diner. The Shaker-style kitchen was made bespoke by a specialist joiner and hand painted. We had three brightly coloured glass pendants made bespoke for the kitchen which provide an elegant feature over the island.
Immediate Wow Factor Through Carefully Sourced Statement Pieces
The initial brief for this project came through very clearly in our brainstorming sessions. As we expected, we were all very much in harmony when it came to the design style and general aesthetic of the interiors.
In the entrance hall, stairwell and landings for example, we wanted to create an immediate wow factor. To achieve this, we specified our signature in-your-face Roger Oates stair runners. A quirky wallpaper by Cole & Son and some statement plants pull the scheme together nicely.
Tim’s professionalism and knowledge was very evident. Time lines were consistently met and responses to communications were always very prompt. Tim is a professional with a strong work ethic and I would have no hesitation in recommending his company and using him for interior design again in the future.
