Country homes need not always be historical. In Hertfordshire, we were commissioned to design the interior for a breathtaking newly built property. Opportunities to create an entirely bespoke interior for a country home from the ground up are rare and we worked closely with the architect to reflect our client’s lifestyle with the introduction of an indoor swimming pool, gymnasium, games room and full home cinema.
With so many diverse spaces, we created harmony throughout the interior with a sophisticated blend of lighting, warm materials and natural wood. Our clients wanted a mix of comfort and refined beauty – something that was neither a pastiche of a bygone era nor too modern and hard-edged. Our design responded to this brief with gracious detailing and meticulous accents yet also offered a welcome challenge to our client’s comfort zone with the incorporation of surprising colours and textures. The result is an up-to-date interior that is timeless in its appeal.
