We redefined traditional design for a 6,500 sq ft Georgian home in the historic city of Bath. The property had recently been renovated, preserving all of the original historic features. Our brief from the client was to create a comfortable family home with a traditional aesthetic, fashioned around their beautifully curated antique and art collection.
Maximising the internal area of the home, we converted the utilitarian cellar into a cinema, adding wood panelling to the walls and linen to a striking arched ceiling.
“I personally enjoy the quality that a fine oil painting brings to an interior. Having such a large collection of art and antiques that has been carefully curated by the client over many years brings an exciting dynamic to the design process. We contrast modern contemporary pieces with antiques to create a grounded ambience rooted in characterful expression; layering old and new”
The dining room is a great example of the juxtaposition of texture and materiality to set-off their historically important artwork and furniture pieces. Classical oiled paintings in ornate frames are draped on a textured, sandblasted, blackened-ash wall while a large antique chandelier hangs above a contemporary dining table, contrasted with vibrant red leather chairs.
