What a transformation – out with the old and in with the new!

For the start of 2018 I thought it would be fitting to share with you some before and after photos of one of our client projects completed last year. (1970’s modernisation seen in our portfolio)

It was so rewarding to share this with our client the transformation of their house into a modern contemporary home.

Entrance Porch and Front Door - First Impressions Count!

We injected warmth and impact by changing the front door to a solid oak modern design with clear glazed side panel, a new larger house name plate, an elegant bay tree, painting the cladding in a charcoal grey and adding downlight spots for an enhanced lighting effect.

Entrance Hall - Welcome!


  • Re-decorated throughout in F&B Wimborne White to create a warm bright environment.
  • Laid a new grey tiled floor for practicality and rustic charm.
  • Added a new solid oak staircase with glazed panels to maximise light levels and add a contemporary feel.
  • Placed a new feature console table with large panelled mirror above to reflect light coming in from the glazed panel adjacent to the front door and add an eye catching focal point.
  • Added fun functional decorative accessories such as a coat hook and pigeon hole post rack.

Re-decoration, a new fireplace, all new furniture and fittings, and neutral carpet totally transformed this room to give our client a relaxing comfortable space to relax and unwind or entertain family and friends.

Open plan living-kitchen-dining - Ultimate Functionality!

We knocked through to join the kitchen breakfast room and separate dining room to create one big open plan space enabling our client to have a large informal room ideal for entertaining.

Master Bedroom and Dressing room - A tranquil space

A palette of white, pale grey and charcoal was used across decoration, window treatments, soft furnishings and accessories to create a lovely place to retreat at the end of a busy day.
