A warm welcome. The entrance hall in Kit Miles wallpaper and a bespoke console. The chandelier is from trade-only site Versmissen.
Moooi Perch lights cast a playful glow on the period staircase, covered in Missoni for Crucial Trading carpet. A second Moooi chandelier casts over the landing.
The bespoke, handmade kitchen designed by Studio Hopwood, with a splashback in Karak tiles and blue mirror. Gubi Beatle stools in burnt umber velvet line up at the island - the perfect spot for a drink and a catch up.
Timorous Beastie's Storm Blotch wallpaper & antique chairs upholstered in matching fabric pair with Ornamenta tiles and a handmade dining table in the modern extension.
Ornamenta's Tangle tile is seamlessly embedded into the wooden flooring, zoning the dining area.
Inspired by the client's travels in Bali, we installed a B&B Italia bed, with a headboard upholstered in Pierre Frey fabric. Versmissen lights (trade only) mixed with bespoke shelving and sofa create a truly indulgent room.
Over-scaled table lights bring hotel glamour to the bedroom.
A slatted sliding door opens onto the Master Bathroom, giving the bath views over both the front and back gardens.
Beton cire plaster walls contrast with a sleek Lusso Stone bath. The shower and WC are hidden behind frosted glass doors so the bathroom can be in use, with the doors open to the bedroom.
The client's old bedroom furniture has been repurposed for the Guest Bedroom and finished in matching House of Hackney wallpaper and curtains in London Rose.
Guest Bathroom with tiles from Mandarin Stone.
Wall lights are from Felix Lighting Supplies.
Improved access from the new ground floor extension helped link the basement with the rest of the house. The richly panelled wall stops the TV from being the focal point.
A cinema room with dedicated bar is the ultimate luxury today, and an excellent use of a dark basement room. A large squishy sofa, Stepevi shag pile rug, cushions and throws help with acoustics.
Iridescent boulder side tables from Versmissen amp up the glamour.
I'm a big proponent of showing your Guest WC some love. And what better way to do this than with high shine Deralam coated walls and custom neon? A basin from the London Basin Company and gold hard wear completes this mini nightclub.


Designers Statement

Sometimes a project comes along that I can’t wait to get my teeth into. Fortunately I get quite a few of these projects but when these clients approached me about creating their dream family home, after living there for a number of years, I have to admit I knew this one was going to be quite special.

This house is one of the very few privately owned Georgian properties in Cambridge. Of beautiful proportions, it was originally spread over 4 floors, but an extra floor was added during the building works, and a modern glass extension created a dining space on the ground floor, as well as improving access to basement.

A married couple of creative entrepreneurs with 3 children, they wanted to respect the architecture of the building, but also desired that the interior design to reflected their travels and their sense of humour, as well as being appropriate for busy family life. Studio meetings with the clients were always lively, and at times we had to remember that we were there to discuss their designs, rather than partying.

The brief was to be playful with the Georgian interiors, controversial even, straddling the demands of respecting a historic building with the desire to add character to modern spaces. We had such a great time pulling this project together, a lush home for living. Go plunge into the photos and enjoy.
