Stained Glass Doors for an Understairs Toilet
Part of a period home renovation, we’re so happy to see that the stained glass were made the main feature of this otherwise neutral hallway. The glass brings such a warm glow to the space, contrasting beautifully with the white staircase and walls.
Wine Cellar in Open Plan Dining Room
A real statement, this air-conditioned wine cellar was a must have for the owners who love entertaining. The cellar forms part of the new wraparound extension designed by DHV Architects creating a beautiful feature and a talking point amongst guests. Found out how we styled this stunning home in our Latest Projects.
Open Shelving and Moroccan Tiles
Open shelving on its own probably wouldn’t make our list as it’s become a well-used design feature recently. However, we loved how the intricate and colourful patterns of the tiles work to elevate the splashback against the angles of the shelves. The lighting is also pretty special. The LEDs are recessed in wider than usual grooves allowing the glow to diffuse better, creating an overall powerful but soft light.
Contrasting Floor Tiles
There’s so much we love about this gorgeous home we styled for a photoshoot. From the Crittall-style doors to the flash roof glazing and brick wall, it is a stunning extension. The detail that stuck though was the use of the contrasting floor tiles to zone and anchor the dining area. This dining room extension was designed by DHV Architects and built by Ashford Design & Build. The challenge was to create an inviting dining area without compromising on the beautiful light and airy feel of the space. The eye is drawn to the geometrical motif but not overpowered by it. The area definitely needed a little something to section the space and we feel that this solution is much more practical than a rug here.
Part of a side extension to a period property in Cotham (Bristol), this small toilet transports you to a whole new dimension. We love going bold in small spaces and we absolutely adore how the wallpaper also covers the internal door, giving you that enveloping feel. The colour palette is from Farrow & Ball with Lichen on the walls and Railings on the door frame and mouldings. It’s a typical period home combination to have dark wood on lighter walls but it’s so fresh here with the beautiful, muted green and blue undertones of Lichen perfecting matching Railings.
