The clients who had admired my work bought a fully renovated period home. The problem was it wasn't their style. The house size was great, although slightly awkward and confusing with a layout that included a main bedroom with no windows. The challenge was to re-style everything, from the interior design to the furniture, and make a family home with as little structural work as possible.
Solution? Pare back to the original architecture, maintain the original features, remove the reproduction detail that had recently been installed and add simple colour and texture. With an eye for style and a few solutions to combat the less than ideal layout, the result was a contemporary, user friendly family home that avoided the old adage of 'throwing the baby out with the bathwater’.
