The Surrey Style Project19 October 2020
Recently, we had the opportunity to reimagine a four-story home in Surrey. The challenge: create a space that not only serves as a comfortable escape, but is also capable of entertaining guests on a whim. What’s more, underpinning our client’s creative vision was an inherent passion for music and film, combined with a desire to throw a blanket over the cold, dreary days that are reminiscent of winters in England. With plenty of space and natural light to work with, we set out to design the ultimate home-away-from-home for our client. Striking the perfect balance between glamor, comfort and entertainment, we’ll walk you through the Surrey project in this post.
As we embarked on a journey to fulfil our client’s dream interior wishes, we applied a timeless color palette, breathing life into the space with trendy accessories that add a pop of character. If simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication, we used an elegant combination of neutrals, textures and fabrics throughout the house, and decorated with cushions and metallic accents for added luxury.
In the master bedroom, a divine floor-to-ceiling headboard makes a bold statement. Gold accents add an inviting feel and bring subtle hints of glamour to the room. Combined with a calming neutral palette, the bedroom serves as a comfortable escape with luxurious, second-home feel.
For the client with an extensive designer clothing, shoe and handbag collection, we curated a luxe, bespoke dressing room to suit. Opting for a sophisticated white color palette throughout, we dialed up the glamour factor with the addition of a scalloped velvet armchair in heavenly pink. Subtle gold accents are hard at work elsewhere in petrified wooden handles. Coupled with pearlescent fabric and bespoke Perspex, we confess that this dressing room is most certainly our personal favorite in the house.
Designed to satisfy both the film connoisseur and guests who appear at a moment’s notice, enter the cinema room. Situated on the lower-level, this uniquely bespoke entertainment haven bedazzles with its show-stopping detail. Inevitably, heads will turn at the fully-outfitted cocktail bar, sitting patiently in the back, waiting to entertain. In an effort to create the ultimate cinematic experience, we outfitted the floors with plush Jacaranda carpets, adorned the walls with textured wall covering from Tekurta, and orchestrated the installation of a state-of-art home theatre system.
No cinema room is complete without bespoke seating. Here, we drummed up fiery orange tones and earthy brown upholstered fabrics that promise to keep a low profile as the ambient lights go out. For the full-cinema experience, a raised floor offers second-level viewing comfort. If the goal is to entertain while escaping a harsh winter, this cinema room delivers.
As a second home, this glamorous escape holds the key to a retreat our clients can look forward to enjoying throughout the year. No matter the temperature outside, entertaining proves effortless in this Surrey home. In the summer, guests can take to open outdoor space. And when the temperature dips, there’s no shortage of options to keep both family and friends feeling lavishly entertained.
