I’ve been a busy bee working on a few interior design schemes lately so apologies for the radio silence on my blog. I had the opportunity to catch up with a client last week and I saw this as the perfect chance to take some photos for a room reveal blog in their Wirral Victorian house renovation.
For two busy working parents with three children, it’s no surprise how the task of re-decorating can feel like an overwhelming challenge when you have so many other things to prioritise with your time. As soon as I was welcomed into their beautiful double bay fronted period property, I just knew straight away that this family would be lovely to work with and I was right! It’s always a nice feeling when I come away from an initial interior design consultation knowing that I have helped make the process seem less daunting.
The magnolia room I entered was a cold and unused space with no identity or purpose. This room hadn’t been decorated since the family originally moved into their home, so they were really keen to create a cosy environment that felt like their own. It was filled with so much potential with impressive features; a large bay window and 3 metre high ceilings, so I was really excited to start working on this property!
After – A relaxing space to retreat from the chaos
My client was really interested in making use of some existing teak wooden furniture that they already owned, as well as the existing fire surround, so the key to this scheme was to create a balance of mixing old and new effectively together. I suggested we remove a tv from this space altogether as they already have a tv in their main open plan living area. The focus became a log burner fire and the room became a cosy retreat away from the chaos of day to day life.
With an eclectic look, the space is now an indoor garden filled with plants and references to nature, a place to de-stress and unwind, be mindful and escape from technology. It’s so nice to receive lovely e-mails from them to say it feels like such a nice chill out and calming space amongst all the chaos, as this was exactly what I intended to achieve with the design. The bespoke double pinch pleat curtains were made in-house which is a brand new offering as part of my interior design services.
