Renovation of a Victorian House

This new home required a complete renovation from top to toe. The house was gutted and stripped back to its bare bones, which gave the opportunity to knock down a few walls and level the ground floor to create a better flow. New plumbing & electrics were installed,  all the floors were replaced with a mix of travertine, porcelain, reclaimed tiles and carpet to add character and warmth, and new windows installed along with wood burners fitted in both living rooms.

New cornicing and ceiling roses complimented the period of the house, and painted ceiling beams became a prominent feature, adding charm and warmth. A mix of vintage and modern lights were carefully curated to add a soft mood to this colourful house.

The bespoke rustic deVol kitchen with pops of yellow and black on a neutral backdrop, really set the scene in the open plan kitchen and dinning room. A complimentary ply gothic storage design worked well against the eclectic backdrop of boho and gothic textures, materials and colours. The highlight of the lower ground floor showed off a bespoke dog shower, tiled in a fitting navaho style bold design by Bert & May.

The house was decorated in a palette of soft off whites, warm pastel yellow and pink hues, with an earthy mushroom pink living room. Mint and vanilla circus stripes for the master bedroom wardrobes that complimented the bright jade blinds and Josef Frank patterned curtains. All sitting next to the completely renovated family bathroom, wallpapered in a cheerful green clover design, also by Josef Frank and a vintage luxury double sink completed the look.

This was the third project I completed for these clients.
