Chic Home Office
Client project and scope:
We provided a complete re-style for this Victorian styled conservatory which had been a misused space for years. It is often the case in smaller homes where space is premium. Our clients requested a home office with elegance, retaining the Victorian style and include a London theme. Storage was also essential.
Although the room had great potential wall space was limited. Effectively we only had one full height wall available for floor to ceiling storage and space for a desk. The other three walls were half glazed which gave little flexibility. Determined to fulfil the brief we gathered inspiration from the existing black and white floor tiles, and keeping it light. We introduced Cityscape ‘Londinium’ wallpaper from Graham & Brown to meet the London theme and provided ample storage.
For contemporary edge, we fitted bespoke desk and storage units, above and below eye level with white high gloss draw fronts. We collaborated with Bravo London for this installation.
We suggested ‘bringing the outside in’ by installing roller blinds in a monochromatic leaf design to reflect the small cottage garden at the rear. These blinds allowed maximum light, and added movement to the otherwise contemporary and urban feel of the bespoke furniture.
Task Lighting which added pops of colour were purchased from John Lewis and accessories to match. Additional storage as neutral coloured boxes were purchased from the The Holding Company to ground the scheme. The result was stunning and refreshing.
