An edwardian cottage in the charming setting of St Albans in need of modernisation. We re-designed the entire property, added a large kitchen extension, first floor extension and loft, doubling the size of the property to make a characterful family home.
The home has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, open plan kitchen/diner/living area, playroom, utility/office space and landscaped gardens.
The clients passion for travel, the sea and surfing, is evident throughout with many items sourced from salvage yards and antique shops in Sri Lanka. The striking blue pillars are a great example. Throughout the property we specified bespoke encaustic tiling, patterned carpet, exposed plaster, floral wallpaper and vintage lighting to give a lived in, eclectic home that reflects the warmth of the family. In the kitchen, custom cement island in pale blue and grey swirls compliments the solid wood worktops and impressive range cooker.
This happy home has a through-line of bold colour that brings it life, something that is a signature of our design work.
