17th century coaching house: double lounge renovation

It’s been very dreamy to be able to work on a project for a local family. Moving into a beautiful and large but comfortable home with rural views, they wanted to do something special with their large lounge and enlisted our support to help develop a vision for it, making the best of its beautiful bones, linking the two spaces and making it the perfect space to gather, relax and entertain. The wonderful beams and wooden floor remain but everything else we refresh within the light boundaries of a soothing and warm scheme. A really nice collaborative project involving many strands.


What they said: 

“Earlier this year we moved house and needed to decorate and furnish a large lounge. Rooms in our previous houses have always been cobbled together but this time i wanted something that reflected what we liked. I had never considered using a designer before but felt overwhelmed at all the choices out there. I knew what i wanted to achieve but couldn’t figure out how to get it. Teresa was brilliant at understanding the brief. I confess I was unsure when she came back with the designs but I decided to trust her and I have loved everything she has chosen! We have ended up with a room design that we all love and that we would never have arrived at without her help. Brilliant!”
