Case study three

The generous proportions of this Regency house and its tall street facing windows which allow plenty of ambient light into the rooms meant that there was scope for using a darker palette for the furniture. The pieces were designed to complement the existing features, such as the ornate plaster cornices, deep door architraves and skirting boards.

Mid left: Wall hung units on either side of the chimney breast contain coats on the left and a TV and sound system on the right.

Middle: the long wall-mounted units echoe the proportions of the chaise style sofa and rest above the deep skirting.

Above: the kitchen has simple wall units and a polished marble-top island unit;

Bottom left: In the study the recess by a chimney breast was transformed into a cupboard specifically designed to hold colour cards, paints, crayons and papers.

Left: the sitting room has wall mounted units that blend in with the main wall colour.
