    A contemporary family home that is both relaxed for everyday family living, whilst striking & functional for regular entertaining & holding the clients’ company corporate events.

    Design Brief:

    To create a contemporary family home that is both relaxed for everyday family living, whilst striking & functional for regular entertaining & holding the clients’ company corporate events.

    As the house is big enough to accommodate dedicated rooms, rather than the need to be multi-functional, each room needed to be tailored exactly to how they would be used, allowing for more creative freedom for design aesthetics within each zone.

    To push the clients’ boundaries on contemporary design as the clients have historically opted for a more classic & traditional design.

    Key aspect of the project:

    Creative freedom to push the clients’ boundaries & imagination, working with a blank canvas as the property was a new build.

    Why does the design work so well?

    As the clients’ children have recently grown up, the worry was the house might feel too big when it is just the 2 of them there, with lots of areas getting unused. With the feel of open plan living, yet still zoning off key areas for everyday living, the space feels proportionately right, which is enhanced by the flow of texture, colour & furniture layout.

    How do you feel the design integrates into the wider environment?

    By using as much natural textures where possible, complimenting the large windows with simple soft furnishings to help frame the fantastic view.

    What specialist or artisan skills were involved in the making of the project?

    Carpentry

    Handblown glass

    Bespoke soft furnishings, upholstery & re-upholstery

    Handwoven silk rugs
