- Client List
The drawing room of the Lake House is designed to welcome you with its warm, rich textures and colour. The walls are biscuit from Farrow & Ball, which are matched in tone to the long drops of silk herringbone curtains that close off the room in the evening. The ground floor has an open plan feel as it flows through from the soft seating around the open fireplace to a perfect breakfast spot in the corner overlooking the Tarn. This leads round to a more classical dining area, which divides the lounge area from the state of the art kitchen by Seimatic.
Planned and designed for functionality and appearance alike, the kitchen’s sleek contemporary finishes of chocolate Corian tops, caramel units and stainless steel Gaggenau appliances prepares it for use by top chefs when the house is hosting dining parties for two to twelve guests. The sun floods into the space during the day and the mulberry sunflower curtains close at night to create a cosy atmosphere.
The master bedroom has a wonderfully open feel and is adorned with soft silks and textures to accentuate the luxury offered. Details such as the Grandiflora wall panels either side of the bed remind you of the beauty of the grounds, whilst introducing the rich blue accent colour to the subtly toned ivory, taupe and walnut scheme. A stunning Fox Linton woven silk closes across the wide window and adds pattern and texture to the Larsen wallpaper and luscious stark carpet. The large bedside chests, dressing table and TV wall unit adds the slick Italian finishing from Poliform. A perfect, buttoned accent dressing chair reminds us we can merge period beauty with contemporary style for that ever-lasting design.
The Victorian bedroom was conceived through the highly polished blonde veneers of the existing furniture suite. The impact of the hand printed gold wallpaper from Knowles & Christou rallies for its place of honour in the rich scheme. The room has been styled to a Victorian era, with a traditional style of dressing to the bed and accessories that suggest days gone by. Contemporary influences are seen on the high-buttoned chenille bed head and the quilting of the silk window treatments. Two perfectly re-upholstered period armchairs sit happily on the muted colours of the Zeigler rug, tying the Colefax & Fowler checked footstool with the cream accents of the scheme.
