I worked closely with the clients and a specialised restoration team, to pare back and preserve much of the early character of this beautiful 16th Century red brick house, in the heart of Eton.
All the furniture was either bought in Auction or custom made using traditional methods. The 18th century Suzani, used to frame the Ottoman in the drawing room was the starting point for the scheme here; finished with a greek key border and on elegant arched mahogany legs.
The use of a light teal heritage paint on the walls in the Drawing and Morning room allowed the carefully curated selection of gilt framed portraits to sing out.
The result is an unfussy light filled house which the family enjoy for both entertaining and family time alike.
Acton House, London
I wanted to create a family home with soul. The house is early Edwardian and double fronted with good size rooms and high ceilings.
To enhance the existing architectural character whilst retaining warmth and charm I pared back unnecessary detail by opening rooms where possible. I then introduced a simple elegant style with a good balance of texture and colour.
Brook Green House, London
I worked closely on this project with the owner. We wanted to enhance the already renovated home and its design bringing harmony to existing spaces. In the dining area, the Vanderhurd rug softened the poured white concrete floor and centred the palette. The Danish drinks cabinet added a grown up touch.
Holland Park House, London
The Brief was initially to breathe life into the ante-room between the living room and kitchen - this evolved to re-designing the Ground Floor, creating a more sensitive connection and flow.
Notting Hill Flat, London
Shepherds Bush House, London
The Clients wanted to bring the natural light of the garden into the room and to stress a conservatory, English feel to the design. By using natural materials and a pared back scheme I created a space for comfortable, contemplative living.
