Kate's Chepstow New Build

We were moving into a new build house with the view that this was the house we were going to live in for the foreseeable future. With this in mind we needed the house to work for us, as a young family. With a completely blank canvas we knew what we wanted, to an extent, but needed help to build on this and to envision it. Annie was recommended to us by a friend who was thrilled with her service. We were excited to have our consultations with Annie, initially to talk about our ideas, loves, needs etc and then to actually see our house on screen in 3D. Together we built a home that will work for our children, for us and for us as a family now and in the future. The colour palette Annie chose for us is something we might not have considered and it’s now one of our favourite things about the house. Annie was so friendly and helpful. It was an investment and we’re so glad we did it.

Cosy, contemporary
family home

Kate Wilkins young family recently moved into a new build detached in Chepstow.  Speedily needing to transform it into a practical family home.  Surrounded by moving boxes and really busy with her two little girls, Kate asked me to design the living room, kitchen/family room and master bedroom.  She was very keen to exchange new build blandness into a cosy contemporary home.  We created a colour palette of dark blues, greys, pinks and stone for the whole house and priority was to transform the living room for the family to relax in, including a zoned play area for the girls so toy storage was essential.

We also explored an alternative colour scheme as Kate considered a lovely navy/lime patterned curtain fabric, but although she loved this colour scheme, it was not the final choice, preferring the initial colour palette of a dark blue/grey with pink accents. The kitchen diner, with a set of patio doors onto the garden included a family area where the girls could play or watch TV during the day.  The taupe kitchen blended well with the blue/pink decor in the additional family area.  We used the same colour palette in the master bedroom, adding a panelled wall behind the bed to give the room some character.  Still a work in progress but Kate is delighted with her style direction, as she now knows exactly how to implement her new interior design strategy and has already starting buying!
