Practical, comfortable, interesting

We’ve all been spending more time in our homes. For many of us, it’s thrown into focus what works, what doesn’t, and what needs an update.

A few small changes could make all the difference to your home. Rooms that work better, look better and, most importantly of all, feel better.

A CAR ENTHUSIAST’S STUDY The Film
 
Here’s the film version of this room. Once a dark tunnel painted very very dark brown. My vision for this room was to brighten the dark space a little and make it a contemporary, productive but comfortable environment. I used denim blue and sky blue and colour blocked the entrance to the room.
 
The desk and cabinets were bespoke and made locally. I designed the cabinets in a modern Scandi style, then they were hand-painted on-site. A classic leather Eames desk chair provides a comfortable place to work, and there’s a deep leather armchair for reading or meetings. The deep pile rug adds warmth.
 
The art in this room proved to be an important finishing touch for my client. I sourced motorsport art including an original ‘Senna’ movie cinema poster, along with photographic prints depicting some of the greats of motorsport. The theme was continued with beautiful coffee table books covering car marques and motorsports.
 
There’s an item I didn’t choose for this room, it appears three times. See if you can spot it!!

Nice to see the coffee table book I created for my client on display in their home. It’s filled with professional images of the fully finished and styled rooms.

I’m a total advocate of creating a memorable Customer Experience, and sometimes those little touches help.

MASTER BEDROOM SUITE Case Study 
The Film Version

My scheme incorporated a rich, dark blue palette paired with soft grey and burnt orange accents.

Working with the room’s scale, a super king black oak four-poster bed takes centre stage, adding an elegant focal point. Warm, oak minimalist cabinets with black steel frames complement the bed and natural timber flooring. Brass fixtures and fittings were replaced with further black elements for a more modern look and to add contrast. Sphere-shaped contemporary ceiling-hung Muuto lights create the perfect bedside glow.

I introduced heavy geometric patterned weave curtains with contemporary wave headings and matching cushions, adding texture. A Nordic Knots thick pile carpet was chosen for its luxurious feel.

A large swivel lounge chair with a reading light offers a place to unwind with a book or enjoy the view from the large windows.

The room is finished with carefully selected accessories, including hotel-quality bedding, art, objects, and plants.

The dressing room seamlessly extends the design language, incorporating a geometric rug, leather and black metal bench, a soft floor lamp, a full-length floor-standing mirror and quirky Penguin book-inspired art for a touch of personality.

In the bathroom, a rich marine blue (replacing pink), along with a contemporary screen print and three-dimensional glass and timber wall art, completes the modern, luxurious feel.

Bar project
 
This room was empty when my client moved into his home. After toying with a few ideas we settled on a bar.
 
My vision for this room was luxurious and a bit glitzy. Somewhere to entertain in the evening, but also somewhere to have a coffee in the morning.
 
My rich colour scheme teamed with touches of brass creates a moody luxury feel. The bespoke bar is finished in Farrow & Ball Railings, teamed with a dark grey worktop and integrated bottle shelf. I designed a bespoke banquette and matching pouffes in velvet for a plush feel. Lighting moods can be set with independently dimmable LED lights in the bar shelving, Tom Dixon pendants, and Heal’s wall lights. The oak slat wall panelling adds some texture and contrast and complements the oak floor. Two fridges allow for plenty of chilled drinks and there’s a pull-out bin, drawers and cupboards for bar equipment.
 
My client has already enjoyed a few get-togethers. I’m told it’s the place where guests want to spend most time!

DINING ROOM Case Study
 
When my client moved into this house, after carefully considering every space, we decided not to change any décor in this room and work with it and the bold Cole & Son wallpaper mural.
 
I chose materials and colours to complement the existing decoration and finishes and added strong blacks for definition and contrast.
 
I’ve used simple, elegant Modernist-style furniture to complement the ornate Georgian features, with a centrepiece classic Knoll Tulip table (Designed by Eero Saarinen, in 1957), and six supremely comfortable Hay swivel dining chairs.
 
The high ceilings are perfect for the Nuura ceiling chandelier, which I configured on-site with a gentle random hanging pattern.
 
Services for this room:
• Room concept, design and visualisation
• Space planning
• Furniture procurement
• Accessories sourcing
• Art curation
• Curtains
• Installation and final styling

Saw this in Cheltenham and loved the work that had gone into it and its beauty.  Ok it’s not a profound statement, but the statement and design combined, reminded me of the creative process. Sometimes you are stumped. Whatever you try just isn’t right, or something just isn’t working. Don’t laugh but creativity can be hard. You’re expected to produce something great… to a deadline. Be that a concept, written idea or something visually brilliant, that the client will love. It reminded me of my career as a Graphic Designer, Creative Director and now Interior Designer. I’ve always known not to give up. Work hard on the solution, then work even harder still. Look around, go for a walk, collaborate, look for inspiration in less obvious places. Don’t settle for good enough. Keep going. You’ll Think of Something.

It’s only a fabric sample right? But when you are a creative, presentation matters. This will be used for the blind in a clients games room. @kate.wakeham

Positive feedback on what is an incredibly enjoyable project. My client is able to leave everything in my hands and arrive home on completion days, to fully finished and styled spaces, ready to enjoy.
 
Many people find design decisions and changes in their homes stressful:
 
• Where to even start
• Ideas and inspiration
• Colours, finishes, styles
• Space planning and layout
• What will work in my home
• Managing the process
• Finishing the space, ready to enjoy
 
I’ll provide inspiration and ideas, and I’ll guide you through the process and help you make those tricky decisions.
