Our clients asked for our help in renovating a large country house. We worked alongside their main contractors to design each space, including electrical and lighting layouts, colour schemes, furniture, decorative lighting and accessories – right down to a very large Christmas tree! Our brief was to design spaces with impact, drama and elegance; spaces that would live up to the wear and tear of family life but also have wow factor. We combined a mixture of industrial and classical styles with a bespoke five-metre long dining table in cararra marble, contrasted with industrial chairs and a large scale classical mural. Each of the cabinets in the dining room provided ample storage so that the mountain of craft materials, musical instruments and the family computer could be hidden from view when needed.
“It’s hard living in a home that makes people turn green with envy, really, it is. We never meant to do it. We blame Woodhouse & Law.”
