An English, classically elegant aesthetic was the overall look the owners wanted to achieve. Being a semi-detached home, the windows are only located on three sides, so it was very important that the home felt light throughout.
All the rooms have been planned to ensure they feel larger than they are. Keeping the rooms uncluttered, using simple, classic products and materials has ensured a continuous flow and mood.
Each room, however, has individuality, making it an interesting home to walk through.
We began with the kitchen, bathrooms, and powder room. Once the new, functional layouts for these rooms had been established, we could then set about linking them to the bedrooms and living spaces, through colour, ensuring that the hues worked well with the homeowner’s personality and lifestyle.
The original kitchen had tall cabinetry both sides, which felt claustrophobic. In my new design, the fridge was moved to the other side of the kitchen, nearer the dining area, giving it a more spacious feel.
The stained timber herringbone floor was positioned to fit centrally between both sides of the galley kitchen. This, combined with the flowing veins of the stone benchtops, draws your eye towards the more spacious dining area, with its abundance of natural light.
