A contemporary pared back family home where we worked closely with our clients to balance the practical requirements for a family of six with a minimal interior design scheme.

Our brief was for a timeless, peaceful, contemporary interior – clutter free and with plenty of storage to hide the mess of a busy family life. 

We developed a finishes palette of white pale oak, pale grey and some black. We also worked with various textures including selecting tiles with a subtle surface texture. We explored new materials and used porcelain panels for the work bench in the kitchen as well as the butler’s pantry – which allowed our client could have her desired white bench tops but they were safe from her four children and their food preparation. We used this approach throughout the house – employing a soft and light scheme and balancing this with practicality. Custom designed joinery throughout the house – mostly made from a pale oak veneer with minimal detailing – has been carefully considered to make the home function efficiently and to have a storage space for everything required in the home.
