Loft apartment, Old Brewery, Frome
Walking into Louise's loft you could be in New York or London, It had the essential elements, beams, height, architecture. But we are so busy in our daily life, it's easy to lose sight of the original vision, and Louise was stumped trying to find a way forward for a new interior. This wonderful loft had bags of potential, it just needed a little nudge to get a new focus. Does your home need a new lease of life?
We replaced the original kitchen with vintage style units and a tall vintage cupboard. We added a distressed wood characterful breakfast bar, used as a kitchen counter and for entertaining guests . The living area had new low contemporary sofas (great for space illusion as eyeline goes over the top). Decor was neutral with red brick facing, bold artwork on the large wall expanse, industrial pendants and metal wall lights. London, New York? No Frome!

Before Annie’s visit I had always found it difficult to visualise changes to the interior layout of my loft style flat. I had become tired of how things looked and lacked ideas about how to add what was missing. The whole process was enlightening from beginning to end. Annie listened carefully to what I was looking for and was sensitive to how much I wanted to change colours and layout.
Even on her first visit she gave me simple ideas about how to arrange the pictures and soft furnishings I already had to make the most of the space and also reflect my own personality and interests. Annie’s graphics were really helpful and enabled me to see exactly how things could be – both a safe and a more daring option with layout and colours.
She then listened to what I liked about the new layout and showed me what changes I could make without a huge cost outlay. Annie’s warm ,open approach was so helpful throughout the process – she could see possibilities I couldn’t even imagine!
