LATE VICTORIAN TERRACE
A FULL “BACK TO BRICK” RENOVATION AND EXTENSION OF THIS VICTORIAN TERRACE, PREVIOUSLY BEDSITS FOR 20 YEARS, TO CREATE A PRACTICAL YET STYLISH HOME, REINSTATING CLASSIC DETAILING WITH A MODERN EDGE.
The interior was designed to maintain the home’s historical authenticity whilst adding a layer of modern details.
The color palette is light and airy throughout the main body of the house to enhance the spacious feel.
Whilst unexpected pops of colour, including William Morris print in the cloakroom, sophisticated darker tones for adult spaces and pretty pastels for the youngest member of the household, are a natural extension of the scheme.
A broken plan layout for the ground floor provides the amenity of separate rooms with the natural flow and light of open plan.
The redesigned kitchen includes classic details , materials , and lines to reflect the home’s traditional nature , including carrara marble countertops , subway tiled wallsand inset cabinetry.
The deep green chosen for the cabinetry is both classically stylish yet bang up to date . It tones beautifully with the grey limestone flooring and brass hardware.
A generous ceiling height allows for specially extended wall units with a wonderful sense of scale and proportion.
Reclaimed materials including the French oak island countertop and antique brass taps make the design a true one-off
A practical family home needs space which is not always on show . A generous utility room provides ample storage and the ability to close a door on clutter.
The hallway provides a convenient spot to drop your coat and bags after a busy day . A vintage
wooden bench is an ideal find and opens up for additional odds and ends to be stored . A built in shoe drawer makes effective use of under stairs space and allows all the family’s outdoor gear to be kept out of site.
Period features were reinstated in the living room to restore it’s classic beauty.
A reclaimed fire surround was reimagined with the addition of carrara marble internal panels and intricate cornicing accurately reflects the damaged original.
With effective planning and design choices the newly created loft space feels like an original part of the house . Warm tones and textures mix with subtle pattern and reclaimed furniture to create an adult sanctuary.
The laidback luxury feel continues in the en-suite , enhanced by nickel fittings and handmade effect tiles.
