From city apartments to country houses, we develop schemes that are both beautiful and practical. From the initial creative concept, to fulfilment and project coordination, we have it covered. Take a look at our case studies below.
Set in the Somerset hills, this beautiful old barn hadn’t been updated since its conversion back in the ’90s and the owners were keen to give it a refresh and bring it in line with 21st century living.
We were tasked with creating a fresh, contemporary home filled with natural light and a space that was super stylish but also inviting and practical enough to stand up to the day-to-day needs of family life.
The project covered everything from interior design to spatial planning, bathroom design, lighting, colour schemes, bespoke cabinetry, window treatments right down to furniture and accessories.
We re-developed an annexe to create a decadent master suite; a grown-up haven for relaxation, with its own private sitting room, dressing room and bathroom.
A formal drawing room and double-height reception hall were added, for that real sense of grandeur every time you walk in and we accentuated the original exposed beam detailing with hidden state-of-the-art lighting.
Concealed doors were used to make the space as versatile as possible – meaning the ground floor can adapt from one large open-plan room, perfect for entertaining, to more intimate, private spaces in a flash. This flexibility also allows the layout to evolve with the family.
The new-look barn is a modern light-filled wonder meets characterful country home and the serene space is one the family now want to spend lots of time in.
We commissioned by a musician and her family to design the interiors of their country house. The design team worked in collaboration with the client and her husband throughout the programme of works, which included the addition of a contemporary glass extension to a period building. The house is nestled within the Somerset countryside and large expanses of glass help connect the house to the landscape beyond. The design team took material and colour references from the surroundings, including the large natural timber dining table and the forest green accent colours that feature throughout the property. The result is a great combination of intimate rooms and spacious, light filled spaces in which to live, socialise and be creative.
A lateral conversion in the heart of the city, which included lighting and electrics, spatial planning, elegant furniture, relaxing colour schemes and decorative lighting throughout.
The clients were delighted with their new luxury pied-à-terre, especially the lovely warm rust tones echoed throughout the space.
Our clients demolished an existing property to build a large family home in the centre of the city. We worked alongside the architects and contractors over two years to design the interior and gardens of the property. Engaged from the beginning of the project, we provided advice on spatial planning before developing detailed designs and specifications for all rooms including the kitchen and bathrooms. Our remit also included designing electrical, lighting and AV, as well as detailing ironmongery and internal joinery. We also designed, made and installed the kitchen, utility room and all cabinetry. We looked to accentuate the beautiful architectural design, combining the latest technology with beautiful furniture, decorative lighting and accessories. The result is stylish and contemporary but equally a welcoming and relaxed home for busy family life.
Commissioned by our client to work alongside their contractors and architects, we were asked to develop full plans for the renovation of this listed townhouse and its gardens on one of Bath’s iconic crescents. Our duties included fully detailed designs on every one of the house’s rooms including electrical plans and detailing on ironmongery and beyond. With a remit that included the design of all cabinetry, we built not only the hand-crafted kitchen but also the bespoke cabinetry of the dressing room and storage throughout. Our design ensured that existing furniture, art and the property’s stunning original features were seamlessly mixed and enhanced with new additions and sympathetic treatments. The result, a Georgian property given a respectful, contemporary new lease of life as a stylish family home in the heart of Bath.
This sympathetic renovation of a Grade-II townhouse and garden on the eastern outskirts of Bath is a true reflection of the owners’ personal style. The result, a home that acted as a backdrop to the art and decorative pieces the owners had collected together, which would also act as a canvas they could continue to add to over time.
Our clients bought the top floor of the world-renowned former pottery and brewery as an empty shell. We were commissioned to create a stylish, contemporary coastal retreat. Our brief included every aspect of the design, from spatial planning and electrical and lighting through to finishing touches such as soft furnishings. The project was particularly challenging given the sheer volume of the space, the number of beams that span the property and its listed status. We played to the industrial heritage of the building combining natural materials with contemporary furniture, lighting and accessories. Stark and deliberate contrasts were created between the exposed stone walls and gnarled beams against slick, stylish kitchen cabinetry and upholstery. The overall feel is luxurious and contemporary but equally relaxed and welcoming.
Our clients asked us to work along side them to create a glamorous yet serene master bedroom. We looked to complement the style of their existing en-suite and worked closely with the cabinet makers to design the scheme. We used a combination of decadent materials including silks, lustrous velvet and faux fur to contrast the slick, clean lines and rich, ebony finish of the cabinetry. The moire silk wallpaper is a decadent backdrop to feature table lamps, with the oversize headboard giving the room scale. The overall feel is luxurious and restful.
Our client’s wonderful art collection was the inspiration for this scheme. We wanted to provide a backdrop for their bold, contemporary art and Asian furniture that was sympathetic to the period of the house and classic architectural features. We used a combination of black american walnut, with aged and antique brass and neutral linens on sofas. This provided a rich and warm backdrop for punchy and fresh accent colours. The richer hues come to life in the evening and look wonderful as the colder nights set in too. Lighting was also key to the success of this scheme and we took time to tailor a lighting and electrical layout which incorporated new and existing AV equipment.
“Woodhouse and Law work hard to know their client and as such their design work is spot on, always managing to insert something special into the equation. We have happily recommended them to family and friends alike.”
