Projects Completed

Below is a selection of the Interior Design projects I have completed to date.  They cover most rooms found in a typical house and describe the Interior Design requirements proposed and the outcome of the work completed.  These examples cover work undertaken over several years and show how I have designed the rooms involved to make the most of the space available and maximise the light.

Front Entrance with Wow factor

The Interior Design Brief was to make over the front entrance to create a wow when visitors call.

A spa hotel look for a new Loft Room

During the planning of the loft extension, the room design included a separate walled off en-suite bathroom.  Upon reflection of the use of the room, any need for a wall to separate the bedroom from the sleeping areas was discounted.  This was to be a private sanctury for the user, and the lack of barriers meant that the room would seem much larger and more opulent.  A roll-top bath, mirrored screen and wooden flooring added to that feeling of a spa-hotel.  This room is all about space, light and comfort.  Shut away at the top of the house, the luxury of lying in the bath whilst being able to watch the clouds roll by through the rooflights takes one away from the hustle and bustle of London.

From a small galley kitchen to the heart of the home

The extension of a kitchen can only add to its ability to become the heart of any home.  This side return project, has allowed a once galley type kitchen with limited light and waste of outside space to breath and expand into a beautiful space for entertaining.  The use of slate tiles over underfloor heating, a feature wall, also of slate, concertina windows and sky lights, have made this room seem bigger than it is.  A central island where you can cook, wash up and chat to your family & friends, makes this kitchen a sociable space.  A cosy reading nook where you can read recipies, have breakfast whilst looking out at the garden or share a glass of wine all add to this room's feeling of calm.

 

Ex Student bedrooms become a cosy living room and sophisticated dining area

Once two student bedrooms, the rooms have undergone a transformation into a single multi-use space, with a warm and cosy living area, and a sophisticated dining space.  The removal of two walls, blocked up doorway, and the two entrances to a kitchen extension have made a previously cramped space appear to be open and spacious.  Light and air have been brought in, along with sensitive replacement of period features, and use of a warm colour palette.  Bespoke built in features have added much needed storage space, and practical elements such as shutters and an understairs toilet have made these rooms useful as well as comfortable.  Gas fires and feature fireplaces have added opulence and warmth to the room, and the muted greens, blues and creams of the colour scheme placed against the dark brown flooring and sofas provide a nod to the Edwardian era house.

 

A welcoming entrance way.

The entrance to a home gives the first impression to visitors.  This Hallway was transformed by blocking up a doorway, removing the wall between the dining room and stairs, and adding a clear glass wall to separate the living areas from the stairs. Adding back in the dado rail, cast iron radiator and other period features, as well as hanging some unique art pieces has created a sophisticted but warm welcome to the home. Mirrors have added the illuson of space and light to this entrance way,with a spectacular lighting feature as the finishing touch. 

The dado rails and grey paintwork, along with the dark brown wooden floors with paler stair risers have been continue throughout the three floors of the hallway, with lighting features, a roof light, mirrors and pictures throughout adding interest and personal touches for this space.

A boring front entrance gets that WOW factor.

These types of late 1800's/ early 1900's terraced houses can all look the same from the front.  They disguise a 'tardis' like property behind a bland facade.  The aim of the work carried out was to bring something different and unique to the front of this house. Putting back a black and white mosaic path, victorian decorative tiles in the porch, and adding a clear glass external secondary door has really given the front of this house an uplift.
