Their clients wanted to update the property before putting it on the market, and therefore, the designers went with a bright and modern look that would appeal to a wide audience of potential buyers.


Flooring Ideas - Throughout this renovated house, herringbone oak timber flooring was specified as it would’ve been the original flooring. The designers distressed/damaged the floor and used ‘old English’ stain to give a 200 years old look. #FlooringIdeas #WoodFlooring #DarkFlooring

The flooring also contrasts the bright walls and the glossy white minimalist cabinets in the kitchen.

On the same floor of the home as the kitchen, is the dining and living room.

The dining area has a full-length wall bench for maximum flexibility of use, and is also designed as a hidden storage unit.

Light colored Farrow and Ball paint was used throughout the home as it has a traditional tint yet still gives a modern look.

The original carpeted stairs were refinished, and the stair treads transformed with wood. Under the stairs, the pull-out cupboards have been extended, providing more storage.

The stairs lead up to the master bedroom and a home office. Hidden lighting helps to create a soft glow on the ceiling.
