Welsh Family Home

Tap to read more

Georgian houses in the heart of Cardiff, Wales are rare and highly sought-after, which only made working on this family home even more special. Packed with original features including fully-restored sash windows and authentic cornicing, this traditional home came with a truly heart-warming story. Originally owned by a piano teacher with no children of her own, she left the house to a cherished past student. There was just one condition; the full-size grand piano was to remain. The current owners purchased the house complete with the very same piano, and it has become a defining feature of the drawing room. 

Our overarching brief from our clients was to breathe new life into the property, which while charming in its traditional aesthetic, was dark and dated in parts. Architecturally, two new rooms were added to the house; a light-filled orangery and cosy snug which would serve as a family room and a place for their two children to relax. A mould of the original cornicing was taken from the house and recreated in the orangery to establish a natural flow from room to room. 

Passionate about supporting emerging artists, our clients vast collection of contemporary artwork inspired the colour palette of striking teal, fresh white and soft grey. The stair-runner picks up on these hues and threads the scheme throughout the house. In the master bedroom, a double height ceiling adds a sense of drama, imbued with a fresh, contemporary feel thanks to panelling detail, whitewashed for a sense of calm and serenity.
