Interior Designer Lancashire

Located in Lancashire, this modern interpretation of a grand lakeshore property was owned by the same couple who owned the boathouse, a project we refurbished a few years prior. Delighted with the finish, they asked us to introduce our relaxed signature style to their main residence on the Lake.

We aimed to create a more sleek and sophisticated look in this large property, as a mature adult home perfect for entertaining and enjoying family in a very formal setting.

A Modern Interior Kitchen Design

As with most homes, the heart of this home was in the kitchen. We inherited a sensational bespoke designed oak kitchen from when the property was custom built over 14 years ago. Exceptional in its quality we proposed a scheme incorporating the main units, the existing anthracite Aga and a layout that would flow through the house from the day to day less formal entrance into the house, through a wide hall cloakroom, into a back of house annexe, separate drinks area and into the main kitchen.

The scheme gave a contemporary feel to the overall space, the kitchen opened up into a stylish but traditional dining space overlooking the garden. In the brief we were asked to update this and create the feel of the boathouse. We did this simply with the addition of shutters, adding lighter and more modern finishes and pulling a grey wash over the existing woodwork.

We added a contemporary drop of porcelain pendants from BTC. The softness of the finishes adds to the relaxed and warm atmosphere throughout. The space became a much lighter experience, less formal. The last room this flowed through was the Orangerie lounge where we added accents of indigo blue and mustard, with eye catching glass and porcelain vessels from William Yeoward. The buttoned upholstery held on to the splendid grandeur of the property and the conservatory glass formed spaces, the result was an uplifted adult lounging space

Bespoke Interior Design

On entering the property from the main door entrance, you are met by an imposing curving oak staircase that winds its way up three stories to the bedroom suites and finally a customised turret office. This brief was more personal to the owner and all about attention to detail. It not only had to have the wow factor, but be comfortable to work in on a day to day basis.

The beautiful bespoke joinery had to hide everything away, the printers, the papers, the files etc etc to leave clear surfaces and show off the exceptional walnut marquetry and detailing in the hand made oak pieces. The practical desk and units were either handless or enhanced with “Ochre” ivory cabinet handles.

Luxury Interior Design in the Lounge

Given the luxury of space, the more formal entertaining was carried out in the lounges and dining rooms off the main hall and staircase. To direct guests to the cloakroom we commissioned a hand painted wallpaper artist to interpret our hand drawing and colour scheme with a trailing, flowing Japanese style blossom from one end of the hall to the other, it also curled its way up the turret walls towards the bespoke office at the top.

In contrast to the darker wood panelling in this area of the house, we used enriched warm colours, lit by interior lighting as very little natural sunlight reaches these spaces. The rich reds and oranges pop out from the subtle, soft background strie. It is quite a magical space in an exciting property
