Our clients purchased a tired and neglected Georgian townhouse which had previously been split into flats. They commissioned us to create a classic, yet contemporary living space within the context of a beautiful listed building.
We worked closely with the owners and contractors to sensitively modernise the house, ensuring existing architectural features – cornicing, fireplaces, sash windows and more – were all maintained, protected and sympathetically enhanced.
Our brief included the design of a formal drawing and dining room to entertain guests, alongside a more relaxed, open-plan living space and contemporary kitchen for the family to enjoy.
Across the first floor, we designed a luxurious master suite including a bedroom and seating area in which to relax. We used a palate of warm neutrals to make the most of the abundance of natural light and accentuate the warm honeyed tones of the beautiful Bath stone cantilevered staircase in transitional areas, with stronger accent colours – blues, greens and pops of pink – in the reception spaces.
The dining room is a playful mix of traditional and modern, with a striking glass dining table taking centre stage against a backdrop of our clients’ prized collection of antiques and contemporary art. The chimney breast provides a real focal-point to the room, with its hand-painted silk wallpaper resembling waves, which changes the feel of the space throughout the course of the day and adds a real sense of opulence for dinner parties that run late into the night.
