When we were approached by Berkeley Homes for this project, we were instantly drawn to it’s desirable location. Having been previously occupied by the Barnes Police Station many years ago, the properties had been built in the style of the many townhouses in the surrounding area, giving the seven newly built houses wonderful character.
Our designs needed to appeal to a high-end market, a young family from England or overseas, with luxurious spaces which were in keeping with the typical Barnes market. The children’s rooms were playful, creative and comfortable spaces full of fun lighting, artwork and design touches such as bespoke joinery and quirky accessories.
The master and guest suites on the other-hand were the epitome of luxury, with a wonderful mix of textures and hand picked furniture and accessories, curated to make each space feel truly unique. Bespoke shutters and a contemporary take on a four poster bed set the tone for the guest bedroom, complimented by a calming blue scheme. Whereas the master suite comprising of his and hers dressing rooms and luxury en-suite, was characterised by an understated colour palette made up of countless sumptuous fabrics and finishes. The hand crafted headboard wall with antique mirror panelling reflected the bespoke upholstery and window treatments, with the high-end lighting and accessories completing the space.
We wanted to make the kitchen/ living the heart of the home, making it a comfortable and inviting space - perfect for entertaining. The oversized pendants hanging over the island carried your eye through to the outdoor space, creating a wonderful indoor/outdoor feel. By zoning the four main areas of the kitchen/ living it kept an open plan feel whilst creating functional spaces. The fresh colour palette was embellished by brass finishes and warm mustard yellow tones.
Finally, the living room in the basement served a dual purpose of being both an inviting family room and stylish entertaining space. The bespoke joinery was cleverly designed to disguise services to the property, whilst also creating a seamless media wall. The bespoke upholstery gave plenty of comfortable seating whilst mirrored finishes bounced light around the basement space.
