The main requirement was to make each room distinctive but to also make them feel linked. We love challenges like this.
We began by creating a mood board of our proposed soft and warm fabrics and relaxing colour schemes – neutrals mixed with greens, golds and bronzes. We followed this with 3D renders to give them a complete insight into our plan and to help them visualise how the space would look and feel.
At Kettle Design, we pride ourselves on our technical expertise which means that when it comes to moving walls and cutting through ceilings to move radiators, we know what we are doing.
We made both spaces more intimate, added a fireplace to give focus to the sitting room, installed a flat screen television above it, wrapped a bespoke sofa around the faceted windows and added a bespoke rug.
In the alcoves we lined the wall with statement wallpaper made from real banana leaves while the dining room walls were covered with dark linen paper.
To give both rooms added wow factor we laid the most beautiful bleached oak herringbone floor that feels blissful underfoot and installed a stunning piece of bronze sculpture by Bruges artist Jacques Vanroose.
The project was completed on time and within budget and the client was so delighted with the finished result that they have asked us to declutter and transform other areas of their home.
We were delighted that the project caught the eye of the Northern Design Awards 2018 who presented us with the best Interior Design Residential Project.
