Residential Property, York

Interior design concept for the living room, dining room, entrance and hallway.

The property was built c1860 and had retained many original features including the stunning inglenook fireplace in the living room. Typical of properties of this age it had low ceilings which made some of the rooms feel dark and in need of personality injecting into the space. The property had been extended to offer a larger than expected living room and a modern kitchen and utility room. Due to the original design and function of the building it had a slightly awkward layout with rooms leading into other rooms and multiple doors in the dining room plus the stairs leading to the first floor. 

The client brief was to work with the entrance and inner hall's dog legged layout and create a cohesive design which introduced and welcomed you to the property. It was important that the property had a sense of balance and harmony.

The flooring in the living room and dining room was to remain. In the living room the focal feature was the beautiful fireplace. It also benefited from 5 windows and doors leading out to the garden. In this space one of the existing sofas was to remain. In the dining room due to the small window and low ceilings it felt like a dark space which needed light injecting into it. The design concepts produced created beautiful spaces with a sense of light and harmony whilst bringing out the client's personality.
