Detached village family house

Traditional and modern 
mixing your styles

Marcus and Grace and new baby recently moved from Bristol into a detached house in a traditional Wiltshire village.  The light and spacious house stands in a wrap around garden, in need of an update to make it practical and contemporary for modern family life. Specifically the renovation had to reflect designs for the living/dining room with a focal point black granite fireplace, a WFH study makeover  to inspire focus and concentration (blue)  and inspirational positivity (orange), a kitchen restructure, re-site downstairs cloakroom, new hallway staircase and decor for master bedroom, en-suites and family bathroom.  In a word, a whole house makeover, retaining style and character.

The final colour palette was a vibrant mix for the whole house.  The black granite fireplace in the living room helped to create the mix of new/old style the couple were keen to introduce.  Decor was a vibrant teal, complemented with tan and navy.  The restructured kitchen with quartz worktops had room for a small central island.  The mix of dark blue and blue/grey units, together with characterful encaustic and subway tiles emphasised the Provincial French style.  The master bedroom had a calm and serene feel with light touches of fresh green which coordinated with the ensuite tiles.    Fresh, contemporary, family home for now and future.
