Interior design project for a mock Tudor house

 

Transforming a mock Tudor house into a warm and elegant family home

 

Our clients had recently bought a six bedroom, 5,500 square foot mock Tudor/Elizabethan house in Richmond, South West London. The were looking for help creating a modern interior design, whilst retaining its Tudor Heritage. 

 

The house was in a mixture of styles. One room had very dark wood panelling on the walls and beams and other rooms were more plain. There was hardly any colour in it. Our clients were looking for an interior designer who could help them to furnish the house and bring it to life in a way that would reflect their style and function well for a family of 4. They had some ideas of their own but wanted advice from an interior designer on which of them would work and help executing them. 

 

The overall style they had in mind was one of calm and relaxed elegance in keeping with the period features of the house. They felt the interior architecture of the house was, in places, busy enough so they needed the furniture, soft furnishings and accessories to off-set this. When they created their Stylebook from our online Gallery, however, whilst a propensity towards a neutral palette was clear, it alsobecame apparent that they appreciated detailing and some more adventurous furniture styles, all with a common thread of luxury. 

 

After instructing one of our interior designers work on the interior design began. Our designer carefully considered the existing interior architectural style as well as our clients' style and lifestyle including hobbies, favourite colours and art collection. In the daughter's bedroom the palette of duck egg blues and soft lavenders form the perfect backdrop to the gentle textures, floral fabrics and woollen throws. The walls of the son's bedroom are decorated in a soft, warm grey and compliment the timber exposed beams, providing a rustic take on the modern look. 

 

In the sung, the eclectic mix of classic and contemporary styles is evident in the use of finishes and bespoke furnishings. The colour palette of this room has subtle, warm undertones with further texture added by the placement of a parchment drum used as a side table. For the master bedroom the design team opted not to add any furnishings that would conflict with the stunning architectural feature of the exposed beams and trusses. In stated, furnishings were paired down with the focus very much on more humble textures.  

 

Working collaboratively with the client, our designers were able to design and install a stunning, modern tudor home. The placement of gorgeous art work, design of exquisite bespoke joinery, sourcing of a mixture of classic and mid-century modern furniture and use of palette of neutrals and subtle colour combine to create a home exuding warmth and relaxed elegance.
