Our clients & their 2 teenage kids had long outgrown the tiny kitchen of their 5 bed Victorian home, so they asked us to design and put in a planning application for a large side-return extension that would give them a new family space to cook, dine & relax in. The interior needed to be bright & open, cater for plenty of concealed storage, also house a walk-in washing room & guest WC. Practicalities aside, the style had to be just the right side of glamorous. So we zoned off the open space using pastel paint colour, multi-floral wallpaper, staggered ceiling heights & moody wall lighting to define areas and alter the feel of each functional space. The kitchen is custom built and hand-painted, with Arabescato marble worktops, aged brass detailing, and reeded & hand-blown glass elements that lend an elevated and luxurious feel to the interior...even the guest WC has leopard print wallpaper in it! For the exterior, we designed a courtyard garden with overspilling perimeter planting beds and brickwork paving to give a tranquil, rural feel to this urban terraced home.

Traditional design is all about sticking to the styles of pre-20th Century interiors. Period homes, such as Victorian houses, will already incorporate traditional interior architecture, such as chimney breasts, fireplaces, bay windows, cornices and mouldings, tiled flooring and dado rails. But traditional furniture that uses rich wood finishes, upholstered textiles, ornate details and classic colours can be added to create the understated elegance of traditional homes.

Traditional kitchens often have recessed panel or shaker-style kitchen cabinets with wooden or metal handles, traditional marble or granite worktops, and classic oven models, or perhaps even range cookers. Traditional bathrooms could have all white, or black and white, bathroom suites, tiled floors, pedestal sinks, and classic style taps and showerheads that would look at home in Victorian bathrooms. In traditional living rooms you might find chesterfield sofas, a Victorian fireplace with a mantlepiece, elegant vases, ornate picture frames, mirrors and classic colours. However, you don’t have to stick to all very formal and antique-style pieces, there are plenty of modern designs that use traditional form to create an understated and inviting look.
