Signature Style

This stunning property was originally part of a gentleman’s residence, now divided into five properties, our clients own the central column, which included a magnificent staircase and large traditional windows. The couple were passionate about Nielsen House’s signature style and took inspiration from our lounge redesign at the Gilpin Hotel.

Our focus was to create a seamless connection between the Lake District and Scandinavian style, a look that oozed elegance and timeless sophistication. We utilised a palette of soft greys, complemented by earthy tones, soft layers, natural textures and sculpture.

The historical, traditional features were too dark, though they deserved to be enhanced rather than removed. We painted the dark pitch pine beams and internal doors to lighten the space and created a complementary balance between old and new. We also kept the beautiful, original, terracotta kitchen floor - a charming reminder of the property’s history.

We chose local Herdwick Swaydale carpets and a collection of local artworks for the lounge. The space would be an awe-inspiring, comfortable family room. In building this environment, we carefully selected and layered beautiful, luxury fabrics. We used two sets of curtains; rich embroidered Deleconia outer curtains to frame the window and a lighter neutral linen set that could be drawn to close.

In the master bedroom, we aimed to centralise the bed so it could look out upon the stunning views, but the room and adjoining ensuite did not accommodate this setup. We introduced a half-height partition wall which did then allow the bed to be perfectly positioned, enabling optimum natural light, while also creating a walkway to the ensuite. These schemes were built around a palette of soft greys, layered with a variety of pale pink, mauve and aqua textured fabrics.
