Designing a luxury four story home. The brief was to make their new four story house especially homely but glamorous, as the client loathes the winter months in the UK, but then who doesn’t? And being a second home, it needed to meet the comforts of her sons who would live there in the client’s absence.
As a great lover of music and all things cinema, we were to create a gorgeous cinema room, along with the rest of the property that could accommodate a party at almost a moment’s notice, to which the exciting design process begun… Starting in the lower ground we created a cinema room, including a raised floor to accommodate the 2nd level of viewing, bespoke joinery exclusively designed and orchestrated by April Hamilton which encompassed the screen to the front as well as a delicious cocktail bar to the rear of the room, with plush Jacaranda Carpet, textured wall covering from Tektura & bespoke seating set the scene for a fabulous cinema experience with state of the art audio visual. Whilst we moved through the house, a personal favourite was the dressing room.
The client has a wonderful collection of designer clothes, along with handbags and shoes that required housing & we were to design and fabricate the beautiful dressing room, with pearlescent fabric and bespoke Perspex and petrified wooden handles, it was a dream… the client was especially accommodating with our designs and we loved how it came together.
Whilst we tend to steer towards a timeless approach, we still like to stay on trend incorporating the most recent popular styles, like the headboard and gold accessories & details on the furniture, which we brought into the master bedroom scheme. We have used the cushion fabric before, but couldn’t help ourselves as the scheme evolved, they seemed to be the perfect solution & echoed the colours, textures and accessories within the room to present a fait accompli.
What a lovely project for April Hamilton Architectural & Interior Designers to share…
