Phase II – Private Residence in Yorkshire

This project involved the redesign of principal family areas and en-suite bedrooms in a Grade II*-listed country house. The objective was to modernise and future-proof the rooms, creating timeless decorative schemes that were suitable for twenty-first-century family life, yet also sympathetic to the heritage of the house, complementing the existing features.

The work was undertaken whilst the family continued to live in their home so had to be phased and managed on a room by room basis to minimise disruption.  Taking cues from the architecture and proportions of the rooms timeless schemes were created so that they would respect the history of the property without feeling dated.

As part of the remit several pieces of bespoke furniture for various areas of the house were designed and supplied, from fitted wardrobes in dressing rooms to the table and a modern take on a dresser in the dining room.

A principle part of this project was the creation of a Gentleman’s Library from a former anti-room that was lacking in purpose and therefore had little use.  Due to the listed nature of the property shelving was designed to be freestanding so that the panelling could be left untouched.
