What we did

Warm and livable entertainer’s dream

 

The existing house was quite clinical and almost Cubist in its design and they asked us to make their space more warm and livable.

 

Keen entertainers whose dinner parties are attended by captains of industry, the couple were forward thinking (it was one of the first local properties to boast an in-house cinema) and we introduced décor elements such as plush Matteo Grassi chairs as part of the extensive refurbishment which included the cinema, entertainment areas and the five bedrooms, with particular attention to the girls’ bedrooms which are colourful, happy yet functional spaces.
