Old Reservoir House

A personal introduction opened the opportunity to work on this old reservoir house property; a charming old cottage set deep in to the countryside, surrounded by rich woodlands and a meandering river. With the property interior renovated to a high standard, the client entrusted complete creative freedom to explore different themes and refine the character of the property. Some of the leading influences contributing to the overall aesthetic include the stylings of English country manor-houses, Brooklyn loft apartments and a playful fairytale twist from Alice in Wonderland.

Grand Reception

A key ambition for this design was to illude expectations by transporting the visitor from a traditional cottage exterior to a chic, industrially-refined, interior. Investment was shared between larger statement furniture pieces, offset with lighter, decorative touches to create a homely environment.

Centered in nature

Lots of natural light and a wraparound window configuration frames this room in an interestingly organic manner. It was important that material and palette choices carefully complimented and contrasted in a harmonic way.

Rec Room

Adjoining the expansive living space with the rest of the house, I wanted this room to contrast by offering a cosy and inviting nook to hide away in.

Sleek ensuite

A monochrome colour scheme allows for bold styling, with the sculpted matte black bath placed centrally in the room. It is framed by a distinctive feature wall that hosts the open waterfall shower that also matches with a matte black finishing.

The Green Room

Green is a perfect colour to use in the bedroom as it is calming and relaxing, setting the tone for rest and restoration.
