Mixing traditional and contemporary design
A few weeks ago we gave you a sneak peak in to this project (see that here) and now we have the big reveal. The project was to turn a 4 bedroom, 1 bathroom in to a more modern living space for a family, this meant that we needed to get creative with the space and it also mean that we managed to go from having 1 bathroom to having 4! (oh and a study/gym too!)
The main living space is a wonderful entertaining area with an open-plan kitchen that leads into a wonderful dining and living area, we had to make the most of every bit of space but wanted to make sure that the whole house retained a light and airy feel.
For the kitchen we decided to go with a gorgeous green quite traditional door and go for more modern handles to pull it together with the rest of the room. The stunning walnut worktop is all one piece and was apparently quite a challenge for the builders to get in!
The study is right off the kitchen – you just see those two mirrors on the right, well one of them is a mirror and one of them is a hidden door to the study/gym area! We decided to go for a really gorgeous splash of colour in this room, it looks wonderful when you have the door open to the living room – you barely even notice the running machine! The boy’s bedroom gives them a great amount of room to play. One of my favourite rooms in the house however is the master bedroom – it is so serene when you walk in here and that headboard is just a masterpiece!
And last but by no means least is the hallway (with a custom Kia Designs rug!) and the bathrooms. The one one the left is the master bathroom and I think my favourite room in the whole house – that mirror is even more divine in person and the colour is beautiful! The two images on the right are the guest bathroom and the boy’s bathroom – how cute is having a chandelier in the boy’s bathroom??!
What is your favourite part of the design? We will be doing special blog posts on each part over the next few weeks so let us know if there is a room you are dying to know more about and we will be sure to put as much information as we can in!
