A complete renovation of a main bedroom suite in a stone built cottage nestled into the hillside.

Our clients were keen to add some colour and life into this room, whilst wanting to retain and celebrate their home's unique character.

Our bespoke storage design was key, taking the new wardrobes along the length of one wall to create a dressing table area, and unusually adding cupboards above the door.

Adding flexible lighting which can be switched from both the door and the bedside means that the clients have complete control over their environment.

The nature inspired wallpaper sets the tone for a soft scheme which is both fitting for a bedroom and a cottage set in such beautiful surroundings, with some of the colours in it picked out in the bespoke furniture and accessories.

Everything has been meticulously planned, from the practical but beautiful flooring to the single, insulating lined curtain, so that it all comes together and works perfectly for our clients.
