Zesty yellow -Georgian House

This en-suite bathroom was carried out in conjunction with other other interior design work on the house, including the japanese bathroom and the design for the kitchen.

This room was quite a challenge due to the age of the house, as is often the case, these rooms are not very square, so the fitters had carried out a good deal of structural work to make the room appear as we wished.As a guest bathroom it was to be simple and zesty affair, fun and clean.

Combining a pared back colour scheme of white and yellow Dalsouple flooring (the rubber flooring experts), the colour that was chosen was an acidic yellow ochre for its vibrancy.

The theme of 'one-off' and individuality extended well into this area.

Through the course of designing and researching for other rooms within the house, the design language for the bedroom became an extension of this yet with added softness.

We designed and built a fitted bed console with extending cupboard spaces either side as bedside tables. Small directional snake lights were installed for reading by. The wood is ash and was oiled for a soft finish.
Over the wooden chest in the bedroom (owners own- see above) hangs a stunning glass lamp by Italian designer Michele De Lucchi . It is hand blown by the designer as part of his design movement Produzione Privata, which is all about returning to the handcrafted and hand created using traditional methods. He is also a founding designer of the lighting giant: Artemide.

We knocked through a full height opening linking this bedroom to a smaller adjoining room, to create a walk in dressing room. Both rooms have large windows virtually opposite each other, and the light floods through this linking opening, 

The colour scheme combines a heritage light teal with soft natural cream, to continue the naturalistic and healthy aspect. The bedroom was painted in a rich matt duck-egg blue, and the dressing room papered with a delicate design in ivory and blue of abstract poppies by David Oliver

The dressing room features 3 large wardrobe units (designed and made by rogue-designs) made of solid ash and ash veneered panels with 8mm glass which is laminated and whitened through the centre of it making it opalescent in nature.Two tall units sit in alcoves either side of
