The brief was to create a contemporary relaxed home & a new light and bright luxury kitchen for them to occupy during the week as the weekends were spent at their second home in Sandbanks.
The kitchen was our biggest challenge on this project as it was a sub-basement and north facing, which made it terribly dark and somewhat bland.
Our thinking was to open up the window. Whilst we were aware it wouldn't actually allow more light in, it would give the illusion of more light and we would support it with cleverly positioned Daylight LED lighting supplied to us from Orange lighting. This completely changed the feel of the room.
The clients wanted a classical luxury painted kitchen which we have made on several other projects, of course with varying details to make the kitchen unique to the client and handles of their choice.
We were all delighted with the outcome, making a great space for convivial dining and entertaining.
The living room evolved after a visit to Decorex. We were so inspired by the new fabric collection, from a little known company, that we wanted to introduce these into our portfolio. With ink dots and splashes it was so much fun to use.
The contemporary sofas lent themselves to linen fabric, and the Ikat silk cushions added the "pop of colour" that brought the scheme to life, along with some super fun artwork from Trowbridge.
Designers Guild guided our inspiration for the master bedroom with lovely relaxed crème linen for the hand finished interlined curtains and cushions. It all added to the sumptuous seating area and relaxing luxury bed.
