To 'undress' this historic building to reveal its original character, texture and colours. To retain its charm, atmosphere and proportions and to indulge in its raw untouched quality.

The Client

The clients are passionate collectors, perfectionists and care about the details of decoration and furnishings.

The House

All areas of architectural woodwork and plaster were dry-scraped back, inch by inch, to uncover long hidden historic colours. Door handles, light fittings, radiators, sanitary ware and even the Aga are vintage pieces, sourced and assembled together to give the impression of a home that had grown through the discovery of electricity and development of plumbing and central heating.

This project was featured in the World of Interiors Magazine.
