I met this delightful client before Christmas 2018 and after a few coffees and chats began officially in the March of 2019. I was involved from the very beginning which helps and saw the house in it's before stage. Plans were to gut the interior entirely and extend, go up into loft, completely reconfigure the layout including staircase increasing the space, improving the flow and adding a designated home office, playroom and music room for this busy family.
Chemistry is so important with a client and from the beginning I understood her vision. A love of colour and texture was evident in her existing interior and she'd come to me based on my previous projects and shared aesthetic.
Towards the end of the project some compromises were made due to unforeseen circumstances and spend. Existing lighting/beds/furniture was kept or client found alternatives to things previously chosen. The outcome is still cohesive and full of the family's personality.
This house is due to be photographed professionally next month.
Floor plan first draft - we changed the kitchen layout
There were 19 boards in total - too many to show! These were a starting point with fabrics and lighting options. As the project progressed, decisions were made, things changed due to budgets, stock issues and discontinuations. Items we'd decided on during 2019 weren't being purchased until Spring 2020 which posed some issues and of course we then had Corona Virus to deal with..
